Read this: Update on BBC interactive TV services

Summary: In November 2019, we communicated that we planned to remove the text and data element of the BBC red button service due to financial pressures and the significant technical effort and cost of retaining the service, which would come at the expense of investing in other services. For people using the internet-based version of our red button service, we will be consolidating our internet-connected TVs apps, retiring the BBC News and BBC Sport connected TV apps before the end of the year as well as the lottery and weather pages on connected TVs. BBC iPlayer will become the home of much of the video content that is currently available on the BBC Sport and BBC News TV apps and the traditional text and data offer will remain accessible on the majority of internet-connected televisions via the 'Text' button on the remote control. - link
