BBC red button changes next week

There will be several changes to the BBC red button services on Freeview next week.

From the 27th October, the interactive stream on channel 302 will be removed (please note the interactive stream on channel 301 will be staying) and the BBC News multiscreen service will also be removed from Freeview.

On the official BBC blog for the Press Red team, they say “in order to make space for HD broadcasts in the future we need to now switch off two of the three interactive streams we use to deliver BBC content on Freeview”. BBC News multiscreen is one stream and 302 is the other stream. The BBC News multiscreen service will continue on other platforms such as cable (some areas) and Sky.
