Wimbledon 2013: How to watch on the BBC

Wimbledon 2013 will be the BBC's biggest ever on digital with a record 10 live streams available on computer, tablet, mobile and connected TV.

Audiences can follow an unprecedented amount of action, wherever and whenever they want to, with live action and on-demand content available across four screens: desktop PCs, tablets, mobiles and connected TVs.


Sue Barker is once again at the helm this year on BBC One, BBC One HD, BBC Two and BBC Two HD with increased live match coverage and analysis.

Joining her will be some of the greatest tennis players to grace the game, including John McEnroe, Boris Becker, Lindsay Davenport, Martina Navratilova and Tim Henman.

Coverage on BBC television will start at 11:30 BST during the first week, apart from Wednesday 26 June when coverage will start on BBC One and BBC One HD 30 minutes earlier.

Red Button

You can access more live tennis by pressing the Red Button from 11.30 BST each morning until the last ball has been struck at SW19.

Satellite and cable viewers will be able to select from three additional live courts, while viewers on Freeview, BT Vision or YouView can choose between two extra courts alongside the best of the action on BBC One and BBC Two.

Just press red on any BBC channel, select Wimbledon 2013 and then choose your court by accessing the menu via the blue button.

And the best of the action will be available in HD on the Red Button HD channel.

Virgin TiVo users can access all 10 live courts in HD via the Connected Red Button.


BBC Radio 5 live and BBC 5 live sports extra will offer more than 170 hours of live coverage from the All England Club.

John Inverdale and Shelagh Fogarty will be joined by tennis correspondent Jonathan Overend, who will provide live commentary alongside well-known tennis icons such as Nick Bollettieri, Jana Novotna, Pat Cash and Richard Krajicek.

A daily podcast will also be available to download via the BBC Radio 5 live website.

Returning to BBC Radio 5 live for 2013 is 6-Love-6 with John McEnroe. On Tuesday June 25 and Tuesday July 2, listeners get the chance to speak to the four-time Wimbledon singles champion live on 5 live and get his unique perspective on the Championships.
