The BBC will offer up to 15 HD live streams from this year’s Wimbledon tennis tournament in addition to 153 hours of coverage across BBC One and BBC Two.

In addition last year’s unpopular highlights programme Wimbledon 2Day has been axed, and will revert to the original “Today At Wimbledon” name and be presented by Clare Balding, alongside two expert guests every day on BBC Two. The hour-long round-up will “focus on the main matches and key talking points from the day’s play as The Championship builds to its climax”, according to the BBC.

Last year’s revamp of the highlights programme, which included rebranding it “Wimbledon 2Day” was was widely criticised by viewers for failing to provide enough focus on the day’s play.

Eurosport is on the verge of being the first commercial broadcaster to be allowed to broadcast live UK coverage of Wimbledon this summer.

The pay-TV channel has finalised details with the BBC about how it can partner with the corporation to air the tournament from 2016 to 2020 and is now awaiting consent from regulator Ofcom.

Under the deal Eurosport will simultaneously broadcast live coverage of the final with the BBC but also air evening highlights timed not to clash with the corporation’s own nightly roundup.

The BBC has aired Wimbledon for eight decades but with increasing pressure on the licence fee it has been looking to make savings with tie-ups with commercial broadcasters.

Speaking at a press conference in Paris in which Eurosport and its parent Discovery announced a number of sports rights deals, Eurosport chief executive Peter Hutton said he could not yet announce a deal about Wimbledon but said details how how it would work with the BBC have been ironed out.
