BT said last week its TV customers would soon be able to access Netflix on their YouView set-top boxes. The news confirmed an earlier rumour that also named TalkTalk, which uses YouView hardware for its TV offering, as a potential Netflix partner. We suspected it was only a matter of time before TalkTalk made its own announcement, and today, YouView's done it instead. Netflix will indeed be available through TalkTalk's YouView boxes, though they're not due to receive it until early next year (interested customers can put themselves at the front of the queue by preregistering here). BT users will start seeing the new streaming option from today, and YouView owners who have purchased a Humax-made box outside of a TalkTalk or BT package are feeling the love today, too. YouView's also putting on an event later, suggesting this morning's Netflix news gives us just a small taste of what the company has planned.

Update: Looks like the event later is just a celebration of the Netflix news.
