published on UK Free TV

For many years, Freeview viewers have been able to watch two, then four news loops as part of the BBC "Red Button" service.

However, the changes to the BBC multiplexes that see the BBC giving away bandwidth to the other public service broadcasters (ITV, C4 and FIVE) for their HD service means that the News Multiscreen has to go.

Satellite and cable versions are not effected.

You can watch these loops online:
