netflix on youview

You can now get film and TV streaming service Netflix on YouView, but only on BT and Humax set-top boxes. If your box is made by TalkTalk or Huawei, you'll have to wait until the New Year for the update.

TV box sets, comedy specials, documentaries and children's shows are all easily searchable via YouView's search function.

Just log in using your Netflix username and password on the YouView remote control, and you can start watching the likes of 'Breaking Bad', 'The Originals' and 'Homeland', as well as the 'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug', 'Skyfall' and 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire'.

Netflix joins YouView's existing suite of on-demand services, which takes in BBC iPlayer, 4oD, ITV Player, Demand 5 and Now TV.

Richard Halton, YouView CEO, said: "Netflix is a brilliant addition to our already impressive line-up of TV programming.

"We are really excited about Netflix and giving YouView audiences even more choice."

Bill Holmes, head of business development at Netflix, added: "We're very excited to bring the Netflix app to YouView boxes and hope to make it even easier for Netflix members with YouView to watch Netflix on their television sets."

YouView is now in over 1 million UK homes. According to the most recent figures, Netflix is in 3 million UK homes, making it twice as popular as Amazon Prime Instant Video.

Netflix is also available via games consoles, Amazon Fire TV, Roku Streaming Stick and set-top boxes, Google Chromecast, the web and app stores.
