BBC Sport new live service - FAQs

What is the BBC Sport live page?

BBC Sport is changing the way it covers live events online. As part of this change, we have launched a version of our new live page.

The new approach is part of a BBC-wide plan to improve coverage of Britain's biggest social and cultural events.

Over the coming weeks and months, we will be enhancing these new live pages with improved integration of video, audio, text commentary and data across mobile, tablet and desktop.

What are the features currently available?

Live text commentary is available on the new page, as is both live and on-demand video and audio and the pages for the Winter Olympics will include a medals table. Already these new pages offer a number of improvements...

Speed The page is much faster at updating content, in some cases halving the time it takes to get the content to the page. There is also no need to refresh your screen.

Control The new lay-out will make it easier for you to find and enjoy the content you want around an event in one place.

Consistency We offer the same great content in a consistent user experience across mobiles, tablet and desktop on a single URL using responsive web technologies.

What features are coming next?

We will be adding live data to the pages - for example, live scores and league tables for our football coverage.

And we are continuing to refine the video and audio elements of page, this includes a new-look audio player for BBC Radio 5 Live content and notifications that alert you to new content.

What events are being covered?

The new live page will be available for selected events including the Winter Olympics, Sportsday, domestic and European football.
