Red Button (Sky Sports & BT Sport)

Hi folks, this is really a question for the Virgin people.

Is there any chance that when additional games are being shown on Sky Sports or BT Sport that these can be shown on stand alone channels on the EPG?

The red button functionality on Tivo is quite slow, and onviously you can't look through the guide or quickly flick to other channels. It's a bit frustrating, especially on Champions League nights.

It would be awesome to have this functionality. This already happens with some events on the BBC where EPG slots are used at the end of the guide. It was good during the Olympics, for example.

Oh, and can we get these red button games in HD too?

Cheers!

Re: Red Button (Sky Sports & BT Sport)

Hi grice89,

 

Thank you for your post on the Forum. It's great to get feedback from our community members.

 

We do take on board your feedback as we're always looking to improve the way we do things.
 
The red button content is supplied by third-party providers, so Sky or BT would have to make this feature available in order for Virgin Media to be able to broadcast red button content on a separate channel. At this time, there is no news of this type of feature availability in the future.
 
I am more than happy to pass this along to the development team for them to take this into consideration for the future though.
 
If you have any other queries or questions, let us know.
 
All the best.
