BT selects Humax over Pace for YouView launch

When BT launches its YouView offering in the next few weeks it will use boxes made by Humax rather than its planned supplier Pace.

According to an FT report, BT are concerned that boxes made by Pace have not met its requirements for the launch of connected TV service You View. The telco will instead use Humax boxes, which have been available since the consumer launch of YouView at the end of July. The FT reports that BT will use Pace boxes at a later date, with boxes expected to be smaller than the Humax device.

Rival telco TalkTalk has already launched a YouView offering using boxes from Huawei.
