[21.09.17] YouView’s Ultra HD set top box and new user interface has won a top industry award at the 11th T3 Awards.
In a category of tough competition including Sky Q and Virgin, YouView’s Humax DTR-T4000 available to consumers via BT and the first Ultra HD set top box to launch in the UK, took home the ‘Best TV Platform’ Award.
The T3 judges referenced the set top box as ‘absolutely everything the modern-day TV viewer could ask for. Among its key features you’ve got that Ultra HD or 4K resolution mentioned in the name, plus recent upgrades to the audio and the interface.’
This follows a run of success for YouView at award ceremonies since the Next Generation upgrade to all of its 2.5 million connected devices. A double win at the Mediatel Connies Awards – Gold for ‘International Contribution to User Experience’ and Silver for ‘Best TV/Video Service Update or Launch.’ YouView has also shortlisted for the DTVE Content Innovation Awards in the category of ‘Advanced TV Innovation of the Year’ alongside shortlisting for the TV Connect ‘Best Cloud-Based Video Service’ Award. YouView has supported and driven the ambitions of its shareholders which have been reflected with TalkTalk winning the public choice Award for ‘TV Provider of the Year’ at this year’s uSwitch Awards and we powered the BT win for ‘Best Content Discovery Service’ at the TV Connect Awards.
Richard Halton, CEO of YouView comments,
“We are delighted to have been awarded this accolade. Next Generation YouView and the Ultra HD box have been ground-breaking for us and BT and this award reflects the drive and ambition the YouView team, working with BT have to ensure we deliver the best viewer experience.”
