BBC boosts digital coverage for Wimbledon 2013

BBC makes digital pledge for Wimbledon 2013 coverage

Action from this year's Wimbledon tournament will be available via ten live streams.

The BBC has pledged to make Wimbledon 2013 a more digital-enabled event than ever before, with ten live streams to be made available via connected TV, smartphone, tablet and computer.

Comprehensive coverage and analysis will be offered via each of these channels, as well as on the more traditional platforms of television and radio. Expert views on the latest action will be provided by a panel that will include new faces like Martina Navratilova and Goran Ivanisevic.

Live matches will be screened across BBC One, BBC Two and their high-definition versions, while the ten live streams will present footage from alternative courts. 

As with previous championships, each day's events will be detailed and wrapped up during Today at Wimbledon, which will once more be presented by John Inverdale.

The announcement represents the BBC's latest promise to bolster its digital coverage of major events, coming just two weeks after the broadcaster unveiled plans to make Glastonbury 2013 the first "truly digital" event in the festival's history.

Performances from six stages will be streamed live via PC, mobile, tablet and smartphone, while additional red button streams offering further content and highlights will be available to TV viewers.

Hi confused

You should be able to press the red button on your remote at any time in order to access red button content on your TV. Who's you digital TV provider?

I am trying to watch Wimbledon. I am not being offered the 'RED BUTTON ' option. How do I get access to, the Red Button option?
