Watched the Spurs Manu game yesterday and there was no red button on either my V+ or VHD boxes

Just called faults and was told vm don't support the red button and sky sports on v+, vhd or v box anymore

---------- Post added at 12:54 ---------- Previous post was at 12:35 ----------

Can see Match Choice red button on the current programme and neither my V+ or VHD boxes respond to pressing the red button

the schedule says there wasn't red button available last night or today though, so not sure why you saw a "match choice" option??

the next red button event is as follows:

Champions League - Last 16: 6th March, 7.30pm (Sky Sports 4 only)

My point us that the vm website states that "sky sports red button services are fully available....." which is clearly not true
