BBC launches Connected Red Button

The BBC has launched Connected Red Button, reinventing the BBC’s hugely popular red button service for the future by effortlessly bringing TV, radio and online content together in the simplest possible way.

The service will launch first on Virgin Media’s TiVo® service as part of the innovation partnership* agreed between the two organisations to create next-generation TV experiences. BBC Connected Red Button will be rolled out to other internet-connected TVs over the coming months.

BBC Connected Red Button enables you to:

     - Watch programmes from BBC children’s channels, BBC Three
        and BBC Four anytime - day or night – even if the channel is off-air

     - Effortlessly catch up on previous episodes of the shows you love
        and discover new gems

     - Get closer to the latest sporting action, with more streams, clips and
        content from your favourite events

     - Immerse yourself in news and weather headlines and clips that matter
        to you, when you want them, all at the touch of a button

BBC Connected Red Button arrived in around 1.2 million Virgin Media TiVo homes yesterday and will be available on other internet-connected TVs over the coming months. With new functionality and features added to the service over time, Connected Red Button will redefine how audiences watch, engage and interact with BBC content on their TV.
