A new software update for TalkTalk YouView boxes allows customers to access their subscription channels via the main programme guide.
TalkTalk’s YouView service combines Freeview channels and additional, optional paid channels such as Sky 1 and SyFy which are delivered via broadband.
When the service first launched last year the broadband channels could only be accessed within a TalkTalk player app.
The new update brings the channels into the main EPG for the first time although it is still not possible to record from them or pause/rewind live TV.
An update enabling recording is currently being rolled-out to YouView from BT customers and the feature will be added to both TalkTalk and retail box owners in a future update.
