    I have what I thought was a "smart TV",a Sony KDL-40EX 503 which I like very much.I'm hard wired to my broadband and receive good internet content..However I cannot find "YouView".Am I supposed to be able to get it or is my TV not so "smart" after all?
    Regards

    You need a Youview set top box for this service, no smart TV can get Youview. Youview is a dedicated service and requires a dedicated box. You may in the future get TV's that have Youview built in.

    There is a dedicated Youview sub-forum here for anyone seeking further information.
