Arqiva will carry an additional eight DTT services through its COM8 multiplex during August to allow the BBC to provide additional coverage of the Rio Olympics via the Red Button.

The services will be a mixture of SD and HD and will be accessible on Freeview HD, Freeview Play and Youview receivers. COM8 is one of Arqiva’s two DVB-T2 multiplexes. The services will be available to approximately 76% of the UK’s population.
