However if there is (and I presume there will be), I'm afraid it's highly unlikely to be on Freesat for 2009.Sorry for the bad news.

Just wondering if you'll have Eurovision karaoke ready for next May :D Mon 17 Nov 2008 14:34:58 GMT+1 Andrew Bowden http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/bbcilabs/2008/10/freesat_radio.html?page=69#comment9 Hi MLeng92 - we're currently in the midst of a review of our next steps for Freesat and I can't say too much because nothing is determined.However we are still working on the platform - at the moment, there's an enhancement for the Sport Multiscreen being built (which is also being built for our Sport Multiscreen on Sky, Virgin and Freeview too) and that will launch in the New Year.

You're doing a great job so far, but can I ask what other features you plan to launch on Freesat's interactive service? And when? Thanks.

I remember the person moving their hands but didn't twig at the time. I scoured a few places trying to find a copy of that trailer, hoping to embed a copy, but no joy. I know I have it on an old VHS tape at home somewheredallardice - it's not currently possible to do the radio text on Sky I'm afraid. Hopefully in the future we will be able to, but I can't promise anything.

However, kaihendry you might want to keep an eye on the BBC Radio Labs blog if you don't already, as there's a big project going on over there to change the the BBC's radio stations online.There's more onhttp://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/radiolabs/2008/09/the_latest_on_coyopa_the_mayan.shtml Mon 13 Oct 2008 09:22:55 GMT+1 00_neoFrenchyFrench http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/bbcilabs/2008/10/freesat_radio.html?page=23#comment3 While we're at it, could we also expect a higher bitrate? Sat 11 Oct 2008 10:46:30 GMT+1 kaihendry http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/bbcilabs/2008/10/freesat_radio.html?page=15#comment2 I just want the highest quality radio possible, from as cheap a device as possible.I have trouble with my FM radio as a get a poor signal in my house. And Internet radio streaming sounds tinny.Where do I go from here? Fri 10 Oct 2008 12:30:25 GMT+1 Andrew Bowden http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/bbcilabs/2008/10/freesat_radio.html?page=7#comment1 One option is to connect the set top box into a hi-fi amplifier, and I know some people do this to avoid having the television on, and to take advantage of the hi-fi speakers.It would be interesting to see how much demand there would be for a pure Freesat (or indeed Freeview) radio device. Personally I have a DAB set for radio, but coverage of DAB is not yet universal, and of course the radio station range is different on satellite. What do other people think?
