What do you mean by itv red button dose not exsist on sky , i dont understand that im in work now and my mate has sky and he just said that he has the red button service i know thats sky but we cant even access that  


ITV stopped the Red Button service on all TV platforms, including Sky, on the 31st of January.

ITV no longer offers a Red Button service behind its channels on the Sky or Virgin TV services, following closure of the service on 31st January 2012.

Thank you to all those viewers who used and supported the services. ITV will continue to offer viewers the ability to enter competitions and vote via the other platforms of landlines, SMS, mobile phones and online.


It would not surprise me if we see a ITV App on TiVo in the near future.

 

ITV have said " With the arrival of connected TV services, interactivity is entering an exciting new era and we are looking at ways that we can embrace that opportunity in a commercially sustainable way.”

Begining to wonder if they can do red button at all.  I wonder if "by end of March" becomes sometime in April, then May.....

Sky Sports Red button has already launched, so yes TiVo can do it. BBC Red Button launch is up to the BBC as much as it is Virgin

As well as "by the end of March" I think they said it would launch November last year too, but hey! :/
