BBC to live-stream Wimbledon

The BBC will offer an “unprecedented” 10 live streams as part of its coverage of this year’s Wimbledon tennis tournament.

The BBC said the streams, which will give viewers access to alternative courts, will be accessible across PC, tablet, mobile and connected TV from the BBC Sport website.

Live text commentaries, news, videos, highlights and a regular column and Q&As with British tennis star Andy Murray will featured online, with the BBC Sport app available free for Apple and Android devices.

Coverage of the event will also be carried on the linear BBC One and BBC Two networks and on their respective HD feeds, and on BBC Radio 5 Live.

Last month the BBC also announced plans for “the most digital Glastonbury ever,” with live multi-feed coverage, similar to that seen at the Olympics, planned for the iconic music festival. The BBC said it will air more than 120 live performances over the three days of this summer’s festival on TV, red button, online and radio and will live-stream footage from the six main stages for the first time.
