YouView has added two new free-to-air channels to its line-up of catch-up services, with Yesterday and Really now both available to customers

The channels join the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5 and Dave on catch-up and will allow viewers to take advantage of YouView’s seven-day scroll back programme guide to watch their favourite shows.

The two channels, along with Dave, are part of UKTV, which is jointly owned by BBC Worldwide, the corporation's commercial arm, and US company Scripps Networks Interactive.

Yesterday is similar to the British History Channel, with a combination of BBC staples such as Who Do You Think You Are?, Antiques Roadshow and Coast, as well as drama-documentaries including Nuremberg and Hitler: The Rise of Evil.

Meanwhile, Really has a mix of US drama such as Hart of Dixie and Grey's Anatomy, reality shows such as the popular Embarrassing Bodies and hit exclusives including Rescue: Code One, Ghost Adventures, and Got Home Alive.

Dan Fahy, UKTV’s Head of Commercial Development, said that the network is committed to making its ten-strong portfolio of channels and "bold and innovative programmes" available to as many viewers as possible.

"The launch of seven-day catch-up services for Yesterday and Really on YouView is another important milestone for us in ensuring viewers have ‘anytime, anywhere’ access to our content," he added.

David Dorans, Chief Financial Officer at YouView, said he is "delighted" to add further UKTV content to the line-up of on-demand TV.

"Easily finding and enjoying the best TV available is at the heart of everything we do at YouView. Adding on-demand TV programmes from popular channels Really and Yesterday makes YouView even more compelling for UK consumers," he stated.

The channels have become immediately available to all YouView customers, including those who receive services through TalkTalk and BT.
