The Open goes interactive
BBCi's Open golf service
Watch all your favourite players

BBCi's Open Interactive service promises to provide digital viewers with more shots, fairways and greens than ever before.

Viewers across all digital platforms will get a great choice and features when watching the world's oldest Major golf tournament this year.

Whether your digital signal is via satellite (Sky), cable (NTL/Telewest) or Freeview, you will be able to access up to five extra video features, at the touch of a button.

One will show the live coverage on the main channel (BBC One or BBC Two), while the second and third option will allow viewers to follow two other groups of top players around Royal St George's.

The fourth shows hole guides and round reports and the fifth - 'Golf Extra' - has master classes for viewers to improve their swing, as well as live interviews and press conferences with players.

Although digital terrestrial (DTT) does not have the fourth and fifth options, a constantly updated leaderboard is available to all digital viewers.

By pressing the red button on the remote control, viewers enter BBCi's Open interactive service and can choose between five screens of coverage using the up and down keys.

By pressing the blue button on their remote, viewers are taken through to a leaderboard option.

This provides dynamically updating scores on all the players in the tournament, allowing fans to keep track of their favourite players while still watching live action in quarter-screen.

In addition, digital cable viewers will have access to a course guide, which includes daily-updated pin positions for every green.


Freeview

By pressing the 'red key' during live BBC broadcasts, viewers will have access to three video options and a live leaderboard.

Scrolling through an on-screen pop up menu will allow viewers to choose from coverage following the top players around the course and continuous updated highlights.
