Freesat BBC iPlayer beta gets red button access

Code-only entry ended

Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

Humax and the BBC have extended their iPlayer offering to all of the manufacturer's Freesat set-top boxes, making the catch-up service available through remotes' red buttons.

Both the Foxsat-HD and Foxsat-HDR need to be connected to the internet through a wired link to your broadband router. Once tuned into a BBC channel, pressing the red button calls up the BBC homepage where there's a link to iPlayer.

Alternatively, enter '7001' on the remote and press OK.

The iPlayer-on-Freesat offering is still considered to be in a pre-release, beta stage by the BBC, which launched the service late last year, initially on Humax's Foxsat DVR. In January, the beta programme was extended to Sony TVs with integrated Freesat tuners. Presumably, they too can now access iPlayer through the red button.

Allowing iPlayer to be accessed from the red button menu is a major step toward making the service more widely available.

Freesat has promised it will support ITV Player at some point during H1 2010. ®
