BBC Lets Brits Watch Olympics On Facebook
The broadcaster is bringing coverage of events including Wimbledon and the Olympics to the social network, allowing online viewers to discuss the action via chat and comments. Starting or 'liking' a stream will display it in the news feed, while an in-app Activity Stream will provide users with real-time updates about what their friends are watching. The BBC's televised coverage can be streamed through the platform, in addition to six extra matches from across the courts. A comments thread and sharing features will be in place for the Olympics.
