The BBC is preparing to expand its red button service for another summer of live sport and music festivals.
Replicating the set-up of last year, there are five red button streams on top of the existing service (BBC RB1), plus an HD service, combining the best of the BBC Red Button service in high definition now testing.
The broadcaster is yet to reveal its full plans for its summer service, which this year include coverage of the Olympics and Euro 2016, plus summer regulars Wimbledon and Glastonbury. But satellite, cable and connected TV viewers will be able to benefit from the full service, with linear Freeview currently configured to cater for three full time streams for the summer, although this is dependent on viewers having a device with a DVB-T2 tuner (i.e. Freeview HD, Freeview Play, YouView devices).
There is also a placeholder for BBC RB0 on Freeview, which could make use of some of BBC Three's former capacity.
The expanded service should appear on EPGs in the next month.
Tests are currently being broadcast in the following place:
Symbol Rate: 27500
Mode: DVB-S QPSK
