Following news of a trial for a limited number of family and friends, YouView is now looking to test the long-awaited hybrid broadcast and broadband service with a wider user group. You can register your interest on the YouView web site. Selected trial members will receive a YouView digital video recorder on loan in return for providing feedback on the service. I’m certainly looking forward to seeing YouView. Unfortunately, trial members are not allowed to tell anyone else anything about it, including whether they are participating in the trial. However, a YouView box from Humax is shown as coming soon for £299.95 in a brochure from John Lewis, never knowingly undersold. It looks superficially similar to the well-reviewed HDR-FOXT2, which is available direct from Humax for £249.00 and has been on sale since August 2010. Let’s hope the new Flash interface is worth the wait.
