The vision for the YouView project was a continuously updated product that was on the cutting edge of user experience and incorperating the latest back and front end technologies.
With this in mind, the YouView team decided to not rest on the laurels of the successful launch but to start the process of the next generation.
There were a few high-end goals the company had which created our boundaries to work within
No Box Left Behind
Every box since release had to support the next generation project
Good, Better, Best
A philosophy that different hardware could have different levels of software to enable the higher end devices to have a more robust feature set
