The BBC's connected TV products included Red Button+, a service that extended coverage of live events. Audiences with an internet-connected TV could 'Press Red' to see the other streams and content available.
Although live content was already available through the TV service, navigating through it was challenging. The interface also didn't celebrate the event taking place. It was important to make audiences at home feel as though they were at the event and involved - providing them with a live experience.
The vision was to create something exciting and adaptable for multi-stream events. It needed to work for Glastonbury, Springwatch, the Olympics - and everything between.
After a number of wireframes, mockups, and user testing, the final outcome was immersive yet easy to navigate. Audiences could access streams, restart coverage, see an upcoming schedule, and look at clips and highlights.
