Dave goes live on YouView

Dave goes live on YouView

The service, which went live today, allows viewers to access content on the channel through a Dave-branded on demand portal and through YouView?s seven day scroll back programme guide.

Dave forms part of UKTV's award-winning network of 10 channels and is well known for being the home of witty banter. Hit shows such as Storage Hunters, Red Dwarf X, Red Bull Soapbox 2013, Not Going Out, Russell Howard?s Good News, Bush Pilots, Frank Skinner?s Opinionated and Jo Brand's Big Splash are now easily accessible to all YouView customers.

Dave marks the first of UKTV's free-to-air channels to launch a seven day catch-up service on YouView which is available to all YouView customers. Yesterday and Really are due to follow later this year.
