can you add a second box yourself?

we have one youview+ box in the living room.
Is it possible to buy another box somewhere yourself and set it up in the kitchen so we can receive and record the extra channels?

welcome to the forums Smiley
multi-room isn't an option and the internet channels are only available on one device at a time, each time you want to swap the box I believe you'll have to reactive the other box.

Re: can you add a second box yourself?

This was the key factor in my decision to move to BT.
We now have 2 BT Youview boxes on which we can watch internet channels simultaneously using Powerline adapters without any issue and still be able to browse the net comfortably. So technologically it is possible.
I suspect PlusNet will get there in time

Does BT charge extra for this facility?

I seems like you need Entertainment + to have multiroom but no mention of the cost on the public pages anyway.

You also get the ability to watch the internet channels anywhere (in UK) using the BT app
