Snooker dominates the Red Button this week with plenty of highlights and live coverage available around the clock to suit your schedule. You can also catch up with what you’ve missed on BBC iPlayer.

We’ll also be showing Final Score on Saturday afternoon where you can follow the action around the grounds with all the drama of promotion and relegation in the penultimate day of League One and Two, as well as the Super League Show and Scrum V.


World Championship Snooker coverage

The 76th World Snooker Championship is well under way at the Crucible. We’ve already seen the return of Ronnie O’Sullivan, a shock defeat to four-time champion John Higgins and a new fan favourite in the relatively unknown Dechawat Poomjaeng.

The Red Button will be showing action from The Crucible at the following times:*

Saturday 27 April: 10am-2.30pm, 7pm-11pm
Sunday 28 April: 10am-11pm
Monday 29 April: 10am-11pm
Tuesday 30 April: 10am-1.30pm, 2.15pm-11pm
Wednesday 1 May: 10am-11pm
Thursday 2 May: 1pm-11pm
Friday 3 May: 10am-7.30pm

*Live sports times are subject to change

Highlights from the day’s action are available from 6am-10am, then back on at 11pm through 6am every day this week apart from Friday. For a full list of all the snooker timings on BBC Two HD, online and Red Button click here.


Changes to snooker on the Red Button

Red Button has changed in the past few months and is now ‘single stream’ across all platforms, in line with Delivering Quality First changes. This means we cannot show more than one match at a time on the Red Button.  You can read why these changes were made in this blog post.

Because of these changes, we cannot allow overruns or push back on other scheduled sport content on the Red Button (such as Final Score on Saturday afternoon) and live content may be cut short. During Final Score on Saturday and the Super League Show on Tuesday you can keep up with the live snooker via the BBC Sport website and Connected Red Button.


Antiques Roadshow play along

The popular Antiques Roadshow play along is on a break until next week - but you can still join in on Sunday 28 April and guess the valuations using the free mobile phone app.


BBC Red Button on Virgin TiVo

Connected Red Button does not currently feature eTV (enhanced TV) streams on the Virgin TiVo service. While users can already enjoy live coverage and highlights from a range of sporting events on the service, we are working to extend this capability to a wider range of events during 2013.
