Recording Bt Sport Extra

Hi guys

Any idea how I go about recording BtSport Extra programmes?

There are a lot of rugby games currently being shown on this red button service that I would like to record to watch when convenient.

Re: Recording Bt Sport Extra

You can't.

This is why, with the notable exception of BBC red button that's carried on Ch991, red button streams are inferior to (recordable) broadcast channels.

I would suggest that you watch the red-button games and record the broadcast games for later viewing.

You cannot record anything that does not directly have a channel number on the guide. The red button streams are temporary & effectively hidden away on another part of the broadcast system. In future these could even point at an internet stream.

Re: Recording Bt Sport Extra

You can record red button programmes only if viewing over BT TV.

Re: Recording Bt Sport Extra

Thanks for the responses all.

 

Unfortunately, I’m not always able to watch any of the games at the times they’re broadcast so watching the red button and recording the standard games isn’t usually an option either but I appreciate your thoughts.

 

It’s particularly irratating as I’m certain the option to record red button games was available on my old Sky box/subscription. One to remember when my contract ends.

 

Guess I’ll just have to resort to the highlights programme instead.
