Setting up reminders with TRILT

As there is no series link on BoB it can be easy to miss an episode of a series. We do however have a service called TRILT in which you can set up reminders and TRILT will email you with details of the latest upcoming broadcasts.

First you must log in to the service by clicking on the link above.

You can set your preferences, including name and email address using the link found on the left hand side of the page under the heading MyBUFVC. This will allow TRILT to email any auto alerts you set.

Search for the programme you wish TRILT to remind you about. You can refine your search if you’re looking for a programme on a particular channel, or a specific date for example.

You will then be shown the listings for any future programmes associated with your search. From here you can save your search by clicking Save as auto alert, found on the left-hand side in the section headed Current Search.

TRILT will email you on your preferred day and remind you when the next episode is on so you never forget to record your favourite series on BoB.
