    Recently purchased Sony 43XE8005 Android TV.
    Youview I can't get on with but it appears the only way to view catch up on ITV & All4.
    Question. Why have Sony blanked these 2 channels on FreeView with this model ?.

    Any input appreciated. GWC2828

    Because Sony seem to be a law unto themselves. Their designers appear to have a contrary view of what the customer wants. I have the same TV as yours and have never understood why I cannot record via the usb port if Youview is active. Other makes don't have this restriction, but Sony have to introduce this little 'gotcher'. I have to Enable or Disable Youview as required.

    And don't get me started on the iPlayer 4k UHD debacle!

    Geoff_W. Appreciate your reply. The up side for me this being an Android TV is side loading Kodi and other Film - TV APK's. I have a Amazon TV Fire Stick plus a ABOX but now can do all APK's direct from the TV. A bonus is 5 years warranty from JohnLewis.
    We have 2 other Sony TV's which have been good other wise I should have looked at Samsung & LG.
