    BBC Going For The Gold In Olympic Coverage With Custom Built BBC Sport Apps



    The BBC is planning to take home the gold in Olympic coverage this year as they prepare to provide live coverage of every London 2012 sport from every venue throughout the day.

    “We will be bringing live coverage of every Olympic Sport from every venue, through a combination of BBC One and BBC Three and up to 24 simultaneous streams live online on PC, mobile, tablet or connected TV

    BBC has big plans for its various sports apps on both mobile and smartTVs. Custom built BBC Sport apps for Android and iOS will allow users to watch live video on the go and ensure they never miss a moment.

    Roger Mosey, BBC Director, London 2012, says: “The London 2012 Olympic Games is likely to be the biggest sporting event in the UK in our lifetimes and the BBC’s coverage will ensure that our audiences need never miss a moment.

    With up to 2,500 hours of coverage spread across multiple outlets, users will have access to:

    The BBC Olympics mobile browser site, accessible across all mobile devices, will mirror much of the desktop experience, while audiences can also access coverage through tablets and connected TV.

    The BBC’s Red Button service for the Olympics on Sky, Virgin Media and Freesat will offer audiences access to up to 24 live streams, while there will be an additional 24-hour channel of extra BBC Olympics content available via the BBC Red Button for audiences with Freeview and BT Vision.

    The BBC Sport app for connected TVs will give audiences access to the BBC’s interactive coverage, while Virgin Media TiVo users will be able to access this content via the BBC Red Button.

    The BBC Sport website will offer a page for every sport, country, athlete and venue. The coverage includes live updates, Twitter visualisations and comments from across social media.

    A 24-hour digital radio station, Radio 5 live Olympic Extra, will complement BBC Radio 5 live and BBC Radio 5 live Sports Extra for the duration of the Games.

    It should be quite an exciting time for London as well as the Olympic games, as we approach the first truly ‘Digital Olympics’ in history. The Android and iOS apps should become available soon and we’ll keep you updated so you can grab them from your respective app store.

    Really looking forward to the Olympics. As the article says, it's unlikely to be repeated in my lifetime. Only wish I could have gone to see some live events. Will be glued to the BBC by the sounds of things!
