What devices are currently compatible with Planet Knowledge?

Whilst Planet Knowledge has been developed to be viewed via Freeview, the technology used by each manufacturer may be different.  Planet Knowledge is working with as many manufacturers as we can to make our documentaries available.  This development and approval process does take time.

Below is a list of manufacturers we are working with and the models on which Planet Knowledge will be available. This list was last updated on the 5th February 2015. Latest updates are in RED.

 YOUVIEW/TALK TALK

YouView set-top boxes do not support the standard technology Planet Knowledge and similar Freeview HD services use to stream TV and other video via the Internet. As a result, these set-top boxes are not Freeview HD devices, and so are not compatible with Planet Knowledge. We are looking at ways we could bring Planet Knowledge to YouView boxes, but have no firm plans to do so at the present time.

In the meantime, we suggest you contact YouView directly asking them if and when they will support Freeview-based Internet services such as Planet Knowledge.
