Using the Sky Sports red button

While watching a Sky Sports channel, if a red button symbol appears on screen for certain shows this means extra features are available. Here's how it works.

To open

Press the red button on your Sky Q remote when you see a red button symbol on screen. Depending on the sport and event you can select other matches, watch video highlights or view current scores.

You can customise your viewing using split screen view when a choice of live football matches are available, allowing you to watch highlights alongside a live match. Also, if you’re watching the F1, you’ll be able to switch between alternative camera views to enjoy the race from a range of angles.

To avoid an overlap of sound when watching highlights, audio will play from whichever event you’ve selected and you can switch the sound between the live event and clip. If you decide you only want to watch one event, simply press select again and it’ll stretch to full screen.

Please note: Split screen functionality is available on Sky Q 1TB and 2TB boxes.

To exit 

Scroll left to go back a page, and press Dismiss to exit. If you're watching a video, press Dismiss twice to go back to your TV show.
