Is there a solution to the discontinued Youview App?

Hi

I tried finding it on https://community.plus.net/t5/TV/YouView-app-removal-Remote-Record/m-p/1705856 and became hopeful on https://community.plus.net/t5/TV/Using-the-BTTV-app-for-remote-recording/td-p/1722855 but suffered from brain overload.

It was a very useful App (not that I used it very often) and I thought I could uninstall it on my iPad and reinstall it. Only to discover it no longer exists. 

The BT App, despite being told otherwise, does not work for non-BT customers - unless I've got something very wrong.

So, is there a 'simple' solution?

I haven't been able to find a definitive statement from Plusnet. I'm sure there must be one somewhere.

Cheers

I very much doubt it seeing as Plusnet are discontinuing there TV service.

Once everyone is out of contract it won't be long before Plusnet pulls the plug completely.

The BT TV app works for setting up recordings.

Not being a BT customer and with the BT TV App not recognising my email address I originally gave up on it - too soon, it seems.

After seeing your message I thought there must be a way of getting it to work. So I decided to persevere with it and after quite a few attempts I managed to login and got the TV listings page up. I then linked it to my Youview box and selected a programme to record. 

Success! I really did have 'something very wrong'.

Thank you for responding to my message (and in a constructive manner).

You don't actually need to log in - you can link your youview box without it.
