Broadband provider Plusnet has finally launched its YouView-powered TV service.

Plusnet first trialled the service back in December 2013, but kept quiet about a launch during the whole of 2014. Now it's finally available to YouView customers.

If you want to watch the service, you'll need your broadband through Plusnet – either Plusnet Unlimited Fibre or the Plusnet Unlimited Fibre Extra package.

Among the 15 'premium' entertainment channels available are Fox, SyFy and Universal. And it'll cost you £5 a month.

Like TalkTalk TV, you can add on bolt-on channels each month for £3 each.

Because it's a standard YouView box, you get access to catch-up services like BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, and All 4, as well as Sky Store, Now TV and Netflix.

Plusnet is owned by BT, though the Plusnet site doesn't mention BT Sport, which is available to Plusnet customers who get their TV through Sky.

Customers can choose between a standard set-top box that's good solely for streaming and catch-up services or a more premium edition that does all that and allows you to record shows too.
