Broadband TV News reported today that the French manufacturer was out of the running to offer YouView-branded devices, despite being one of the original manufacturers attached the venture. No reason has been supplied for the move.
In a statement, a YouView spokesman later confirmed that Technicolor "has decided to withdraw from YouView set top box development".
He added: "However, they were one of seven manufacturing partners and Youview remains on track for a consumer launch in early 2012."
The spokesman said that YouView will continue to work closely with its other device partners - including Humax and Cisco - towards the aim of having a range of products ready for when the platform goes live.
Last month, YouView published the final core technical specification for its IPTV platform and welcomed four more device partners - Huawei, Pace, Vestel and the Manhattan Technology consortium.
The announcement followed the confirmation of a list of key content partners for YouView, including the surprise addition of Sky after the satellite broadcaster had previously opposed the venture.
