Further to http://satandpcguy.com/blog/2013/06/bbc-confirm-expanded-red-button-service-for-the-summer/ the BBC Red Button HD service has been removed from satellite.
According to report, this is down to issues with Sky and their software. Simply put, both Sky and Freesat receivers required two different sets of data on the same satellite transponder. This allows both receivers to access the channels via their respective Electronic Programme Guides (EPG). However, the Freesat data needs to pass through an hub, operated by Sky. This is because both platforms use different systems and technologies.
The BBC say “that we’re working with Sky on both matters”.
BBC Red Button HD remains available on Freeview HD at channel 303 and Virgin Media at channel 994.
