Sky / NowTV Red Button content?

Go to solution

I am struggling to get a definitive answer on whether Sky Red Button content is made available on the NowTV app on my BT Youview box.  I am hoping to watch a Championship League football match tomorrow evening.  My usual pub will likely be showing a Champions Leage match and the World Cup rugby so that is probably not an option.  Does anyone know the answer?  Will check the app later to see if  the Red Button matches this evening are showing as available.

@gomezz  I think the answer to your question is the red button service is no longer available on BT SPORT like it used to be. I asked a similar question several weeks ago I was told since BT / WBD joint venture BT  no longer control the sport channels,  Champions League is on BT sport but no red button.

@Bluemoon1  - @gomezz was asking about Championship football on Sky Sports (via the Now app on the BT Youview box) NOT Champions League football on TNT Sports (for which the 'extra' - or red button - channels ARE still available).

Not easy to find since the interface revamp but if you select Sport from the menu at the top of the screen & then scroll down & down & down & down, eventually you get to Bonus Streams, which is Now Speak for Sky's Red Button.

That's how I found it last time there was red button content.

I think the very last row on the main screen.

Thanks all. Checked and found this evening's Red Button matches on the app on my BT Youview box and on my Chromecast dongle. But not showing on the app on my phone which I find curious but not a problem for what I want.

The only downside is I don't get my two free pints of lager as I would if I watched in the pub rather than paying for a Now TV day pass.  😞

Hi @gomezz 

NOW do not provide Bonus Streams on all devices. That is something that irked a lot of tennis fans during their US Open coverage.

The list that they do is shown at

I have also just found that even though the bonus streams are available on the BT Youview box that a day pass does not allow you access to them - you need a month pass. A petty restriction and f'ing annoyed at them taking my money. 😠

I seem to recall that a day pass also gave mobile access for a year? Might be worth trying that.

@andydenyer  Didn't realise it's called Championship League now I thought it was just The Championship, there why I misread it. I stand corrected. �
