Re: BBC Red Button Service

Thanks, but channels 561 onward give only the Olympic channels.  Pressing the on-screen red button does give the visual service but not the really useful text service which is great for looking up football results, news headlines, weather forecasts etc etc.  Does Virgin not support this?

Re: BBC Red Button Service

Yes all these visual services are available but I am asking about the very useful text services which I mentioned above and which Sky, Freeview etc support but which I cannot find on Virgin.

Re: BBC Red Button Service

You've lost me  - I can't find the services on Sky at all

On TiVo I press RED on BBC1 and get a menu

If I select Sports I get further menus with football fixtures etc. - and all this week's football results - in TEXT form

Comparing - it is the same service which loads on my Freeview system

Re: BBC Red Button Service

To get the BBC text service on Sky just press the red button on the Sky remote and a comprehensive and easy-to-use menu appears. Thanks for showing me how to get to the sports text on the Tivo but it is quite tortuous to get there and I can’t find any text in News or in Weather.
