Sport highlights

Enjoy live coverage from the All England Club as the #Wimbledon Championships get underway. In addition to coverage on BBC One and BBC Two, viewers have the choice of up to five extra courts on BBC Red Button. The number of Red Button streams and availability will vary depending on your receiver. Press red to cheer on Andy, Heather and Laura.

And for FIFA World Cup games, you can press red to listen to 5 live’s commentators, or turn off commentary and soak in the sounds of the stadium. Plus, for those of you who’d like a slightly less conventional soundtrack to the action, CBBC’s Hacker T Dog will be providing a (very) alternative commentary for Belgium v Russia.

We’ll also have rolling highlights of the big moments from the tournament running throughout the day, as well as Match of the Day’s daily World Cup Catch-Up. As if that weren’t enough, Red Button also has racing from the Rowing World Cup regatta at Aiguebelette in France.

For details of sports coverage on Red Button visit the BBC Sport website. Remember that live sports times are subject to change.


The world’s most iconic festival starts on Friday with music from American hip hop trio De La Soul, Canadian indie rockers Arcade Fire, Scottish electronic band Chvrches and English singer Lily Allen. And there’ll more to look forward to from Worthy Farm over the subsequent weekend.

Friday 27th June, 9:00pm-2:00am
