BBC extends Wimbledon rights to 2017
October 27, 2011
The new deal will continue to give audiences access to the tournament across all platforms including TV, radio, online, red button, mobile and tablet.
The Wimbledon Championships are one of the so-called ‘Crown Jewel’ sporting events which have to initially be made available on free-to-air TV. BBC Sport is cutting back on a number of its sporting commitments such as Formula One as it attempts to make cost savings.
