BBC Red Button

Really pleased to see BBC News and BBC Sports apps on the red button this morning! A great step forward. Would like to see further BBC interactive options added in time (extra episodes of series etc.), but this is a great start!

Re: BBC Red Button

A good start but we also need digital text like Sky have with their Sky text service.

Other sports will be added, as will text articles.

Red button does also work on BBC News and most other BBC channels, but will take until tomorrow to be fully rolled out to everyone.

Re: BBC Red Button

I would of thought the red button would of been like the freeview one and sky with more options and weather etc.Not just the news unless they will add them later??

But a good start virgin.

Also the star trek app hasn't launched.

Re: BBC Red Button

That does not sound too promising as one would have thought there would a certain timeline with regards to these things.

It does have "text" news as well as video on my TiVo on the BBC News App

Also, does Sky still have a full "text" service? SkyText? I remember it launching years ago and I used to use it when I had Sky...
