Last week BBC announced that the corporation started to roll out its streaming sports for 3G networks in the UK. You will be able to watch Euro 2012, Formula One, the Open Golf, Wimbledon and also the London 2012 Olympics. BBC will release an app for Android and iOS which will have 24 hour live streaming as well as detailed schedules of events and results.
For example, you want to watch an upcoming football match which is being broadcasted by BBC but you’re out and about. Not to worry, you can watch it directly on your mobile as long as you access to a Wi-Fi connection or you have a 3G connection. To use the new streaming service you will have to have iOS 5 on your Apple devices and 2.2 or above for your Android devices, unfortunately there is no support for windows devices yet.
With the new BBC sport website that was updated in February, BBC has developed the mobile sports site using an approach called ‘responsive design’ which means the website can adapt to different screen sizes and capabilities in order to get the best possible experience.
Technology is changing constantly in the smartphone and tablet market, BBC recognises this and aims to fix any bugs that may affect the new app, so if you experience any problems let the BBC know.
