From today users of Sagem Freesat HD and Freesat+ HD set top boxes can catch up with their favourite BBC programmes and radio stations via the BBC iPlayer service, providing the box is connected to the internet.
The BBC iPlayer can be accessed by pressing the red button from any BBC channel (excluding CBBC and Cbeebies) and entering the official trial access code 5483. After a few seconds the iPlayer will begin (an initial ‘number not found’ message may appear before iPlayer begins).
Complete guides to selecting the correct digital TV service for you and set up guides can be found on www.sagemcomdigital.co.uk and more information about the BBC iPlayer service on freesat set top boxes can be found at www.freesat.co.uk/bbciplayer.
Commenting on the latest addition to the Sagemcom products MD Raphael Fainac said: “Sagemcom is a leader in set top box technology and we aim to provide our customers with products that they need. The BBC iPlayer has gained tremendous support since its launch and with all of the UK having either freeview or freesat the BBC iPlayer service is a great addition to our offering.”
BBC iPlayer enables you to watch TV or listen to radio programmes that were first broadcast up to seven days prior, via the internet.
