Live Events are streams of sports events or music festivals that have not been broadcast on TV. For example, lives streams from Wimbledon or the Glastonbury Festival that show different coverage to what's being broadcast on TV. These streams are available in addition to the standard BBC TV broadcast of an event.
This means you'll be able to see more of what you want.
Can I watch live on any device?
Not all TV devices support live playback. To avoid any confusion or disappointment, you won't be offered the live streams if your device doesn't support them.
