ChannelFour first used this for ''BigBrother Live''- as opposed to dedicating its entire satellite channel E4 to broadcasting house action live, it broadcast it during the channel's down time (it was not a 24-hour channel at launch) and broadcast its normal programming for the bulk of its normal time, while still offering the option to watch BB by pressing the red button- largely in a similar fashion to the way Sky Sports offered football above, with a choice of two camera angles, two looping highlights reels and text-based news updates.

** ''NeverMindTheBuzzcocks'' Team captains Phill and Noel would debate which was better between some musical topic and [[IncrediblyLamePun something that sounds like it]]. ''Wizard'' was considered to be better than [[AWizardDidIt Wizards]], while ''Coldplay'' were considered inferior to [[TakeThat cold sores]].

Sport again, Sky Sports would use this to broadcast eight football matches simultaneously on one channel regularly- repeating all that day's premiership matches as live, allowing the viewer to select which match they would like to see, without having to run eight entire channels. Creator/TheBBC would also use this for live coverage of TheOlympics and {{Wimbledon}}, for event or match selection respectively.

Sky News and BBC News would also use this to run a number of seperate feeds, generally kept to different subjects, selectable at will.

The first major use of the technology was to provide alternate angles for football coverage, by Sky Sports- during selected Premiership matches, viewers could choose to watch the entire match from one of four angles consistently, or switch between them at will, as well as pull up statistics, highlights and other information. This was later expanded to all football matches, as well as some rugby and cricket. TheBBC have also adopted similar services for their sports coverage.

** {{Series/Casualty}} on the BBC does this sometimes, with Red Button Specials; minisodes that feature an epilogue, prologue or other view to that week's, or sometimes the previous week's, story.

A British TV phenomenon more than anything- (although I'm [[DidNotDoTheResearch not in a position to check]]), and not to be confused with BigRedButton.
