Hi. On the sports channels the sky pop up will say push yellow for alternative commentary for some nrl, union games etc. This does not appear to work on VodafoneTV. Is there any plan for this to occur?

Hi @timwetherall   This feature is being rolled out over the next few weeks leading up to the Rugby World Cup.
The alternate audio will be available by pushing pause, then arrow-right to the speech bubble and press OK.  Selecting 'English (Alternative)' will give the alternate commentary.  The yellow button refers to Sky set top boxes only.

 

Cheers,

Grant

Hi Grant, this option doesn't work for me - no speach bubble appears when you hit pause.  Any other way of getting the alternative audio?

I'm told that it's not actually the pause button, but the OK button. I look forward to trying it this Saturday!
