YouView launches new Weather Network app

YouView, the connected TV platform that powers BT, Plusnet and TalkTalk's TV services, has announced the launch of a new weather app.

The Weather Network App provides users with the current weather conditions for their selected cities as well as longer-term forecasts. In addition, the App can pinpoint the weather to within 1 kilometre from a YouView set top box.

The application also integrates photos and videos uploaded from users across the globe as well as maps and ski reports.

Additional features include:
  • Accurate forecasting throughout the UK
  • Users are able to save their favourite locations, enabling quick and easy access to weather information via the touch of a button
  • Maps for major cities across Europe, US and Canada

The Weather Network App has joined YouView following the platform's recent re-design, known as Next Generation YouView; the rollout of which continues across all of YouView’s connected devices.

David Faulkner, Head of Corporate and Business Development, YouView, said:
“The Weather Network is a great addition to our App line up offering our viewers greater choice of content and live weather information.”
