Sony rejects YouView deal for Bravia TVs

12/07/2011

The YouView internet TV project has hit another hurdle after Sony revealed they will not have the service on their Bravia range of connected TV sets. The BBC backed internet TV platform has been beset with delays and the loss of Thomson owned, Technicolor set-top box which jumped the YouView ship back in May.

It still leaves the project with several device manufacturers that are committed to the IPTV system in Huawei, Manhattan, Pace, Vestel, Cisco and Humax. YouView is comprised of six partners, the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Five, BT, TalkTalk and Arqiva.

Arqiva owns the catch-up TV service SeeSaw that was due to be closed down June 30th. However that has not happened possibly due to finding a last minute buyer.

YouView should have been available in 2010, but due to delays is now on launch schedule for sometime in 2012.
