YouView announces content partners

YouView has confirmed the 29 organisations it is working with to make content available via the platform.

The content providers working with YouView are Blinkbox, Blinkx, BSkyB, Film4oD, Golant Media Ventures, Guardian News & Media, IndieMoviesOnline, LOVEFiLM, Pushbutton, Radioplayer, Stream UK, STV, Travel Channel, Tvinci, UTV and woomi.

Alcatel-Lucent, Blinkx, Capablue, Deluxe, easeltv, IMD, ioko, Kaltura, Nativ, Ooyala, Red Bee Media, Technicolor, TripleSEE and Twofour form the technology and service providers' advisory group.

The organisations were selected following an 'expressions of interest' process run last Autumn.

"We're delighted with the response we've had from the creative industries," said Richard Halton, CEO, YouView. "We want all types of content providers to be able to deliver their content via YouView so viewers get the best possible choice.

"The diversity and expertise of the organisations that are informing our development will ensure that YouView is able to support a potentially unlimited range of content in the future."

Through YouView's technical development groups, this industry advisory group is informing processes and guidelines which will be published this year.

All content providers—including those that form its advisory group—will later this year, be invited by YouView to confirm their formal intention to making content available via the platform.

Earlier this week Humax announced they have licensed the Marlin DRM for its development of digital Set Top Boxes for YouView.
