Below are the most common questions about YouView speedy install.
Your entertainment is delivered through your TV aerial and your broadband connection. To receive On Demand films and TV shows, as well as Catch Up TV on BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, 4oD and Demand 5, you need to connect your YouView Box to a broadband router. You can also add monthly Boosts including Entertainment Boost, Kids Boost and Music Boost as well as Sky Sports and Sky Movies to your package – you’ll just need a minimum broadband speed of 5 Mbps to watch these. You can view our full range of TV Boosts by visiting our website.
Your Freeview channels and YouView programme guide are delivered through your TV aerial. If you currently receive a good TV signal with stable picture and sound, you’ll be able to receive Freeview using your existing TV aerial. If you need a new aerial or repair work to your existing aerial or cable, you will need a professional aerial engineer. We recommend you check that they are registered and qualified with the Confederation of Aerial Industries trade association www.cai.org.uk or the Registered Digital Installers licensing body www.rdi-lb.co.uk
You can still enjoy your YouView Box without the use of Powerline Adapters, however they are really useful if there’s a big distance between your YouView Box and your router, or if you don’t want additional cabling running round your house. You can purchase these by visiting the TalkTalk shop. Please note: You’ll need to use TalkTalk Powerline Adapters as these are specifically designed to work with your YouView service.
The following items should be included. If there's anything missing, just give us a call on 0870 087 3526.

To benefit from all the features of your YouView Box it needs to be connected to the Internet.

Simply plug in an adapter in each room and your router and YouView Box will be connected using your electricity power lines. If you would prefer to use Powerline adapters just let us know when you place your order.
