29th January 2011, 08:00 AM
Freesat launches in 2008, helping providing digital TV to areas of the UK that were unable to receive the terrestrial Freeview service.

The BBC Red Button Interactive service on Freesat was never as complete as the service offered on Sky, Virgin Media and Freeview.

However, all Freesat boxes are now able to receive a fuller and more complete "red button" service, and can now have access to the more of the video content that was made available on Sky, Virgin and Freeview.

This will include the BBC Sport Multiscreen service.

Other services will include the new Being Human spin off, Becoming Human, available from 30 January, along with more exclusive content from comedy show Episodes.
