So Wimbledon started on Monday, and not being a tennis (or indeed a sport) fan, all Wimbledon really means to me is that I miss out on most of my favourite TV shows. The ones that aren't being disrupted by Euro 2008 anyway�
Posts about BBC red button
BBCi Labs is a new blog from the team I work in and will be a space for the team to write about what we're doing, show off some of the things we've done and various other stuff.
I seem to be making a bit of a habit of missing the BBCi Freesat launches. After being away for the initial launch due to being on holiday, I missed the launch of the new Freesat Weather service on Tuesday due to being ill with a chest infection.
So if you're the one person who has been eagerly awaiting a detailed blog post about it all, well you can now have it.
Well it's 6 May 2008 and that can only mean one thing. Yep, it's the day after May Day. And of course it's the launch of Freesat and the formal launch of Phase 1 of BBCi on Freesat. That is, baring any last minute technical issues or problems.
In the world of BBCi on Freesat, we're moving towards our Phase 1 release - this particular release is one which won't be publicly viewable, nor is it a complete package, but is in effect a working service that can be made public.
Many of the pages in Ceefax have been a bit more fluid than people would often think. Pages come and pages go for all variety of reasons.
Yep, there's a hidden testcard buried behind the hidden engineering page on the BBCi service on Freeview...
I don't know what anyone else thought, but when I read that bit of the Freesat FAQ about interactive content on Freesat, I thought that the author was being just a little cagey - that they weren't really telling me much.
Well the secret is out. Well right now as I type, it's not hugely out because the website hasn't been out for very long. But anyway, the Freesat website is now live, so you can find out all about it, and why you'd want it. Or not want it. Or something.
