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. The BBC had to make adjustments to the format of the programme mid-way through the 2015 tournament, ditching the controversial on-screen audience standing in the background.

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.

The BBC has today announced details of its Wimbledon 2014 coverage.

The 2014 tournament takes place from June 23 to July 6, with coverage on BBC television, radio and digital.

Sue Barker will once again lead the TV coverage of BBC One and Two, while Clare Balding will present on BBC Radio 5 Live.

Reigning Wimbledon champion Marion Bartoli and British number one Laura Robson have signed up to join the BBC’s Wimbledon commentary team.

Bartoli announced her retirement from the game last summer, while Robson is not playing due to wrist surgery.

Boris Becker is off the team this year, as the BBC says that he will be busy coaching after signing up to become head coach for Novak Djokovic.

Bartoli and Robson will join regulars such as Tim Henman, John McEnroe and Martina Navratilova, who made her debut on the commentary team in 2013.

Presenter John Inverdale, who has been replaced by Clare Balding as the host of Radio 5 Live’s Wimbledon coverage, returns to present Today at Wimbledon on BBC2.

The BBC said it would air 150 hours of TV coverage, more than ever before, with coverage beginning on 23 June.

The BBC is to offer up to 12 live streams of coverage from Wimbledon, giving the annual event its most comprehensive coverage yet.

Viewers with connected TVs will be able to access the 12 HD streams with the BBC Sport App, available via the Connected Red Button. This includes viewers with the latest models of Freeview HD smart TVs and those with Virgin’s TiVo service. The BBC Sport App is also available on Freesat Freetime receivers. The availability of the streams in HD will depend on viewer’s broadband connections.

Via conventional means, the BBC will broadcast up to 5 red button streams, which are being created on terrestrial (for Freeview/YouView receivers), on cable and on satellite (Sky/Freesat receivers) to provide extra coverage of events through until the end of the Commonwealth Games in early August.

Temporary red button streams first appeared last week on satellite ()

Before the tournament, a replay of Murray’s win over Novak Djokovic last year will be aired on Saturday, June 21 at 10.15am on BBC Two. A review of the 2013 tournament will be broadcast the following day at 11am.

BBC Radio 5 Live will replay The Day We Won Wimbledon, a documentary about Andy Murray’s victory, narrated by John Hurt, on June 21 at 11am.

On BBC One, When Andy Won Wimbledon will document Murray’s year since winning the Grand Slam at 10.35pm on June 23.

BT Sport has made its first move into men’s tennis buying the TV rights to pre-Wimbledon tournaments including Queen’s.

BT Sport will share live coverage of the pre-Wimbledon event with the BBC, which first began screening the event in 1979, in a deal struck with the Lawn Tennis Association.

BT Sport is effectively replacing Eurosport, which previously covered Queen’s alongside the BBC.

BT Sport will also air exclusive coverage of the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) Aegon Classic event, which takes place at the Edgbaston Priory Club, Birmingham, next month.

Additionally, BT Sport will also share live coverage with the BBC of the men’s and women’s tournaments at the Aegon International at Devonshire Park in Eastbourne.

The BBC is the host broadcaster of live coverage of Wimbledon, after signing a contract extension until 2017.
