TV service YouView has been crowned ‘Video Gadget of the Year’ at the Stuff magazine awards.
Developed by BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5, Arqiva, BT and Talk Talk, YouView combines broadcast channels with broadband delivered content from catch-up services such as the BBC’s iPlayer and 4oD.
The nascent platform beat big name rivals including the Apple TV and Sony’s Google TV box to the accolade.
The Humax-made YouView set-top box previously won the ‘Best Buy’ accolade at the What Hi Fi? Sound and Vision awards, and the ‘Product Innovation Award’ at last month’s ERT awards.
CEO Richard Halton said, “It’s great news that the YouView Humax set-top box has picked up another prestigious award.
“Being crowned as the ‘Video Gadget of the Year’ reflects the great reception we’ve had so far. We are excited about the future as YouView evolves and more and more people enjoy our TV service in their home.”
