The BBC has announced further details of how it will be covering UEFA Euro 2016, which starts in a month.
In total, the BBC will show 140 hours of coverage across BBC One, BBC Two and BBC Four. BBC Four was first used for sport last July, coverage which would have landed on BBC Three in the past.
The BBC will showcase 26 live matches on TV and streamed online, plus there will be highlights on BBC One, BBC Two and the Red Button, plus 24 days of coverage on Radio 5 live. BBC Wales will be broadcasting output on Welsh channel S4C.
Gary Lineker leads TV coverage alongside former England captains Alan Shearer and Rio Ferdinand, and Thierry Henry, who won the World Cup and European Championship with France. Dylan Ebenezer and Nic Parri will lead presentation duties for BBC Wales on S4C, while Stephen Watson and Michael McNamee will be at the helm on BBC Northern Ireland.
Gabby Logan will provide all the latest news and reports from the England camp, Stephen Watson will follow Northern Ireland and Jason Mohammad will report from the Wales camp alongside regular Euro 2016 updates from Eilidh Barbour across the tournament.
RADIO 5 LIVE
Mark Chapman and Kelly Cates will be at the helm on Radio 5 live alongside Caroline Barker and Dan Walker. Germany’s former number one Jens Lehmann and former Northern Ireland defender Gerry Taggart join the station’s commentary team.
There will also be multi-platform contributions throughout the tournament from John Motson, Frank Lampard and Jurgen Klinsmann. They join an impressive line-up of former internationals working across the BBC’s coverage: Danny Murphy, Jermaine Jenas, Robbie Savage, Martin Keown, John Hartson, Mark Lawrenson, Kevin Kilbane, Neil Lennon, Gerry Armstrong, Chris Waddle, Danny Mills, Pat Nevin, Chris Brunt and Trevor Sinclair.
The BBC’s Euro 2016 digital service at bbc.co.uk/euro2016, the BBC Sport app, and BBC coverage through connected TVs will feature live broadcasts of all BBC games, commentary and live text coverage of every game, with in-game highlight clips, on-demand highlights of every goal, breaking news, exclusive features and expert analysis. And every morning, a Euro 2016 Catch-up video will be available to stream through BBC Sport and to download via BBC iPlayer.
In addition to all the Euro 2016 live action, there will be four additional programmes, celebrating the 20th anniversary of Euro 96, a new look at the most famous stories of past Euros, and England’s World Cup-winning team of 1966, and Gareth Bale’s career and his journey with Wales from Euro 2016 qualification outsiders to history makers.
Euro 2016 runs from 10th June to 10th July 2016, overlapping with Wimbledon and Glastonbury. The BBC will be broadcasting up to five additional Red Button streams on top of its existing "BBC RB1" service, plus one in HD in order to accomodate additional coverage of all the events taking place.
