UK public broadcaster the BBC has launched a new sports application for connected TVs. It allows viewers to access interactive and enhanced coverage of a host of sporting events.
The first event covered will be Formula 1 motor racing with the app providing access to live streams, on-demand video and other additional content around races the BBC is covering including a ‘driver tracker’ that shows where each car is on the race circuit.
Separately, the BBC has added live and sporting events to its international iPlayer service. The University boat race is one of the first sporting events that has been made available on the catch-up service.
