BBC Wimbledon streams: how to watch




Update | The BBC has activated extra red button streams to provide coverage from Wimbledon.

Freeview/YouView
On Freeview and YouView, the current BBC Red Button service on channel 601 has been joined by five extra streams, found on channels 602-606.

But reception of these streams is restricted to around 3/4 of the UK, and requires a newer type of Freeview receiver that supports either Freeview HD or Freeview Play. Viewers will only get these extra streams if they can already receive BBC Four HD on channel 106.

Smart/connected TVs and other devices
Smart TVs and YouView boxes for BT TV, Plusnet or TalkTalk TV will be able to access up to 16 HD streams via the BBC's connected Red Button service, which streams the extra footage via the internet. Access to these streams is dependant on a reliable broadband internet connection rather than local Freeview coverage. Selected UHD TVs can also also UHD coverage of Wimbledon via the BBC iPlayer.

Mobile, tablet and PC users can access extra coverage via the BBC Sport app or bbc.co.uk/sport in the UK. 

Sky
Sky viewers can find the extra Red Button streams between channels 980 and 986, including a simulcast of BBC RB1 in HD on channel 980. Not available in the Republic of Ireland.

Additionally, Sky Q users will have access to watch the mens and ladies semi-finals and finals in UHD via Sky's UHD service. An on-screen prompt will allow viewers to switch to the UHD coverage.

Virgin
Viewers can find the extra streams between channels 990 and 996.

Freesat
BBC Red Button's extended service will be live across all of the temporary streams during Wimbledon on channels 980-986.

Wimbledon fortnight starts on Monday 2nd July 2018.
