C4 green button reminder

March 3, 2009

mirada, the audiovisual content interaction specialist, along with Channel 4, have unveiled of an interactive service available on the Sky platform that will help Sky viewers catch all Channel 4 programmes whether on C4, More4, E4 or Film4.

Viewers will now see a green button appear in the top-right of screens during trailers for all Channel 4 programmes. Those that would like to watch that programme can then select the green button on their remote control to trigger a visual prompt that will appear when the programme is about to start, reminding the viewer to switch to a different channel. Similarly if the viewer is using a personal video recorder (PVR), the box will record the selected programme meaning fewer viewers will accidentally miss the programmes they wanted to watch.
