BBC is gearing up for its home country to host the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London with the launch of a timeline application, currently available only in the U.K., which will feature live-streaming of events.
According to TechCrunch, the BBC app will allow users to watch events, comment on them in real-time, participate in live chats, and read comments from other users. Feeds can be shared by liking them.
BBC News & Knowledge General Manager Phil Fearnley said:
It’s a core part of the BBC’s mission to bring our quality content to audiences wherever they are, so I’m very excited to be able to offer sport fans on Facebook a really distinctive live streaming experience.
