Beijing Olympics Interactive Channels

Thanks to reader Keith Ashman, he has pointed out 7 hidden channels showing BBCi streams for the olympics, with a further 2 multiscreen channels. We have not had news from BBC or the BBCi team on the progress of being ready for the start of the olympics (08/08/08), but it should be.

You can access the hidden channels by keying in the following numbers on your remote: 0980, 0981, 0982, 0983, 0984, 0985, 0986. For the multiscreen channels, key in 0990 & 0991.

This has been tested on a Bush SD box, but should work on all boxes.
