The BBC has begun rolling out a beta version of its Connected Red Button service onto some of the most recent LG Smart TV models.
The Connected Red Button provides viewers with additional BBC content via the internet, such as additional streams from major sporting and music events, including the forthcoming Commonwealth Games and Glastonbury.
It can be accessed by pressing red on most of the BBC's channels on Freeview.
According to the BBC, the beta Connected Red Button service on Smart TVs will see further features being added throughout 2014.
It advises that, unlike the full version of Connected Red Button, where you can access from a channel even when it is
off air, access to the beta service will be restricted to the
transmission hours of a channel. During big events, the full
Connected Red Button "may have several streams showing live
action. The beta version may not be able to show all the live streams,
though it will offer a rich catch-up service for events".
Over the past three months, the BBC has been adding the beta service onto the most recent models of Sony and Samsung Smart TVs, following its successful full launch on Virgin Media's TiVo platform.
