Using the red button services

A YouView Box FAQ

Red Button services give you a more interactive viewing experience.

Some channels offer a Red Button service. These channels will show you a red button icon in the top right corner of your screen.

If you’re unable to access the Red Button service, try restarting your YouView box. Simply press & hold the  button on the front of your YouView box for 8 seconds, then let go. Your box will then restart itself.

To find out more about the BBC Red Button+ services, you can check out their website.

If you are a BT sport customer, you can also access their Red button service to view on-screen statistics and alerts to enhance the viewing experience on BT Sport Extra programmes.
