Re: What is BT Sport Extra 1 ?

I have not heard of anything else, other than a design proof of the logo.

Re: What is BT Sport Extra 1 ?

Channel 527 BT Sport Extra 1 is now in the BT Youview EPG - currently broadcasting just a logo and music. No sign of an HD variant of this channel.
Has French football scheduled on Friday evening and further French & Portuguese matches over the weekend

Re: What is BT Sport Extra 1 ?

In the past BT have stated that they will look at adding interactive services to BT Sport. I assume this would be some form of 'red button' service similar to that on Sky and BBC? Could that be what BT Sport Extra is?

 

With that in mind this post was interesting.

Re: What is BT Sport Extra 1 ?

The initial scheduling for the channel ...ie one test transmission (Sportshub) this afternoon and extra live fooball on Friday night , Sunday lunchtime & Sunday evening  suggests the intention is to use it for extra live content - it will be interesting to see if they can utilize it effectively to handle overrunning or delayed  live broadcasts at short notice. Maybe they could offer a commentator free broadcast of the MotoGP races to placate those who don't appreciate the current commentary team.

The backwards EPG implies that some live  motor sports (Formula Renault 3.5 Series and DTM)  were broadcast on the channel over the past week-end.

Re: What is BT Sport Extra 1 ?

Well the logo being transmitted on 527 certainly looks as though it incorporates a large red button into the word extra, with 'X' marking the spot. Smiley LOL 

Coincidence?

Re: What is BT Sport Extra 1 ?

It seems it is BT Sports red button feature http://bt.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/44873/kw/Bt%20sports%20extra/c/6401,6459

A red button feature for only Sky customers though! 😉

Re: What is BT Sport Extra 1 ?

Had the BT Sport Extra 1 channel on my Youview box for a while now. Hopefully the 1 means there may be a 2 and a 3 etc in the future. One obvious use is for reruns of *all* the MotoGP live sessions: Practise and quali as well as the races.
