The team comes together

So after three years the launch day came. Suddenly it was all so real. We’d developed a real partnership with YouView, helping them go from operating out of BBC offices to a fully-fledged company that was launching a product – and we all had something to show for it. It was in John Lewis. It was bundled up with Talk Talk and BT deals. It was in people’s homes. But what then?
