Sport on Freeview – Week Commencing October 31st 2015

Hello all… you know this has been the most successful month for the blog yet – so THANK YOU for your support, it’s great that it’s growing, so keep spreading the word and please let me know your feedback.

Now TV Trial – Day 1

Over the next 30 days, I’ll be reviewing Now TV – with videos, blog posts, etc.  We’ll be looking at what Sky Movies and Sky Sports has to offer as well as the Now TV Entertainment Pass.  Keep coming back to the blog for further updates!

You can also keep updated at my Twitter page @chrisbenson007

So, here is the video for Day 1 – taking a look at the BBC Sport App.  For those of you who just have Freeview, and rely on the Red Button Channel, then the Now TV box gives you access to the BBC Sport App.  When there is more than one live sporting event on, the App enables you to have access to ALL of them.  It also has a good selection of videos from a huge range of sports (Snooker clips, FA Cup goals, etc).

And, tonight on Red Button it’s Gymnastics – but through the BBC Sport App I’m able to watch 2 Pro 12 Rugby Union games which otherwise I wouldn’t be able to see – I can flick between them at my heart’s content.

Of course, next year we have the Olympics – and the App will surely have numerous streams of coverage… there’s also Wimbledon where there’s plenty of courts to watch.  With the FA Cup coverage next week, through the App, you can select mini highlights from an individual game, rather than wait for the goals to come round on the ‘Red Button’ channel.

So, how do you find out what’s on there?

Take a look at the website.  For this Saturday example… it says this…

14:30-16:15, Football – Final Score, BBC Red Button

*Final Score continues uninterrupted from 14:30-17:25 on the BBC Sport website & app and Connected TVs.

This means that full coverage is available through the BBC Sport App for example.

Sunday, another example…

16:45-19:00, Rugby League – England v New Zealand, Autumn International, BBC Two (continues uninterrupted until 19:30 on BBC Red Button & Online)

Tuesday, another…

18:30-20:55, Football – 5 Live Final Score, BBC Red Button (continues uninterrupted until 22:30 on connected TV)

So, that’s the BBC Sport App – here’s my video… and keep coming back daily for more in the NOW TV Trial!  Follow me on Twitter @chrisbenson007 for more too!
