BBC Red Button (remove)?


Active Member
My daughter has had Virgin installed in her first house and I assume it's the latest box.
As we don't have cable where I live I was puzzled as to how to remove the red button icon before the standard time-out?

Many thanks,

The Red Button graphic can be removed from your screen by one simple action, dependent on the platform you are watching on:

  • Sky - Press the BACK UP button
  • Virgin Media - Press the BLUE button
  • Freeview - Press the BACK or GREEN buttons
  • Freesat - Press the BACK or GREEN buttons

Note that the BBC red button service is something provide by the BBC and not something Virgin Media are responsible for.
