At long last the UK connected TV platform YouView has added the BBC’s Connected Red Button service. Which means that viewers will also be able to access an increased choice of video and streaming content across news, sport and weather by pressing the red button (on BBC SD channels only) on their YouView remote control while watching BBC TV channels.
Also means when major sporting and music events are running, the red button is also your window onto all the live streams that aren’t being broadcast on any of the BBC’s traditional channels.
Just wish it had been ready in time for the Glasgow 2014 Games! But hey, it’s here at long last! 🙂
Here are some screen dumps of the BBC’s Connected Red Button service.
