    I see no-one from the BBC has responded to my criticism of scheduling on Red Button!

    Not possible, as they share the bandwidth with CBeebies and CBBC. Those go off air at 1900 to make way for BBC3 & 4.

    Why not put the Red Button overspill on BBC 3&4, before 19:00, as these channels are empty then?

    Further to my previous post, we were watching the 2200 re-run of the closing ceremony on 302 Freeview scheduled 2200-0100. It was billed as without commentary. Well thank goodness that was wrong as it had commentary, we had been unable to watch the live transmission on BBC2 at 1600 or the 1st re-run at 1900.
    But then at 0000 the channel went off air despite the billing and a supposed further showing at 0100. I've deduced that because 302 is not on the BBC Mux, it's sharing bandwidth with a number of the porn channels that start at midnight. Whilst that in itself has to be accepted because of current bandwidth limitations, what is unacceptable is 1) the epg being wrong & 2) the Ceremony being scheduled on 302 instead of 301 as 301 is on air 24/7.
    301 has highlights "Replays of the Day" being shown which has been repeated several times since 1900 and it would have therefore been no hardship if this had been on 302 especially as according to your information above, highlights will be shown again Monday and Tuesday.

    As mentioned in my previous post, this is not the first time that the epg has not been correct on Freeview, nor is it the first time that there has clearly been little thought as to the scheduling of stuff on the red button channels. Yet a further most recent example of the latter that I know of is Wednesday night when the Folk Awards Highlights were being shown on 301 all night and limited Olympics on 302 which of course stopped at midnight.
    Considering that you are showing the Folk Awards Highlights again multiple times in the coming week, why was it on 301 (perhaps rather than 302) at all that evening, instead of Olympics coverage especially as the early evening showing was opposite the Brit Awards on ITV. This is nothing more than incompetent scheduling and as already implied, not for the first time.

    I hope you will completely review your procedures for how and what you schedule on Red Button in the future and it takes into account what other popular programmes are being screened elsewhere.

    The BBC Sport website gives no detail about Red Button coverage beyond 1900 on Sunday.
    I have also frequently found that the EPG Red button information does not tally with what is actually shown, that's not just during the Winter Olympics.
    Poor show BBC
