I was wondering if there was going to be a red button service on TNT SPORTS coverage of Champions League etc. And would there be a green button prompt for 4k UHD content. I used the old BT red button alot during CL Football .
Solved! Go to Solution.
This is an unfortunate casualty of the move to TNT Sports I'm afraid @Bluemoon1
Both the red and green button services were BT customisations, made possible because we controlled the channels and all the associated data.
Now that the channels have moved to TNT Sports, we're no longer able to offer those services. We're not aware of WBD currently having any plans to offer anything similar on the live channels - they do offer similar features within their discovery+ apps though.
It was said on the BT web page that we should be able to
“Flip between live games on the fly
Not really seen an option to do this so far. for example currently there are a couple of UEFA Champions league games showing live tonight but seems not possible to flip between the games without either changing channels on the TV Box or exiting the current match stream and navigating to the other match and activating a new stream on discovery +.
An update now discovery+ On the Roku has TNT sports I can see how to switch games on the fly on the Roku and also on Samsung Tv discovery+ apps
except The game that went to extra time ( and hence past its original scheduled end time ) is not offered as a game to switch too from the other two games. However if you watch that game you are offered the option to switch to both the other games.
I don’t see the option to switch games on the fly on the BT TV Pro discovery+.
The on the fly statement was from BT when they notified me about TNT sports , it is also in use on various discovery+ websites promoting it as an available feature.
an observation in the TNT website you ( @Bluemoon1 ) quote There is a contradiction as the section you highlighted it says you will have “six red button channels”. However in the narrative above it says you will have upto six digital or red button channels. So my interpretation based upon that narrative is that the TNT Sports 5 to 10 for example may be delivered as digital channel streams rather than as red button channels on some devices .
