BT cancels Pace YouView deal

UK telco BT has confirmed that it will not be using YouView boxes from manufacturer Pace.

According to the Financial Times, BT has terminated a deal with Pace to supply it with set-top boxes, although the UK based technology company will continue to deliver BT Vision hybrid boxes.

BT launched its YouView offering, which offers connected TV services in October with boxes supplied by Humax. At the time, it was reported that BT was concerned that boxes made by Pace had not met its requirements but was planning to use Pace boxes at a later date.
