BBC to show all Wimbledon matches in HD for first time
The BBC, the UK's public-service broadcaster, will be showing every match at this year’s Wimbledon tennis championships in high-definition for the first time.
Coverage of this year’s edition of the UK's grand slam tournament, which begins on 1 July, will again be available across the broadcaster's television, radio and digital platforms.
There will be live action on the BBC One and BBC Two TV channels, radio station BBC Radio 5 live and online.
All matches on centre court will be available in Ultra HD and HD via the BBC iPlayer.
The BBC initially rolled out Ultra HD, or 4K, technology, for last year’s tournament, but the coverage was only available on a first-come, first-served basis up to the capacity of the technology.
In 2019, live HD streams will also be accessible on the BBC Sport website and app and via the red button on connected TVs.
Barbara Slater, director of BBC Sport, said: "The BBC's offering this year will bring our audiences exceptional coverage and bring them closer to the court action than ever before."
The BBC is the established TV home of Wimbledon, and holds rights until 2024.
This year's tournament culminates on 14 July.
