Sky Sports Red Button

EFL Championship games on red button did not work for me yesterday. Black screen with red selection box - no text or pictures. Red box would move and allow Selection of main broadcast game and one other game (which was stuttering so much was unwatchable) pressing select in other boxes caused a "unable to tune channel" message or locked up the box.

Same symptoms on second box.

Worked fine on sky sports app on phone

Service checker said no faults in area.

Considering what we pay for this service,  there seems to be ongoing bugs/faults all over the place.

Re: Sky Sports Red Button

Up until 20 minutes into the games, only 2 games were available on the Sky Sports app.

There were also complaints on the Sky Forums that the Red Button games “were in a mess” & incorrectly labelled.

Think we can blame Sky for this mess up.
