Right, I'm annoyed now
.
I want to watch the tennis. In particular, I want to watch a match that's starting soon on Court 12, and I know all we're going to get on television is the one winning shot, which is - well, why would you care about one shot?

So I've read all this stuff that says "ten live streams, biggest online event since the Olympics". The Olympics' online coverage was BRILLIANT, and very easy to access. But can I find these ten live streams? NO I CAN'T.

So far I've spent half an hour googling and searching the iPlayer and BBC websites and I just can't find these ten streams.

Anyone have a link?

having said that, I can't see any links on there at the moment. I think on previous years, there's been a 'watch' option alongside the live scores for selected matches?

Thanks for the link, but it just redirects to wimbledon.com - they do have some live video, but it was the BBC's "ten streams, choose your match" that I was hoping to find.

Mind you, I'm obviously doing something completely wrong all round - I tried the Red Button the other day, for the first time ever. It too was supposed to offer a list of matches to choose from, but it didn't!

OH has now fallen asleep in front of the Grand Prix qualifying - we have such an exciting life - so I might see what's actually showing on the BBC atm.

found it - BBC sport - http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/ - scroll down a bit, there's 8 matches to pick from? :)

(red button's always been crappy/not working on my telly too)

I've had a look at that page a couple of times; do you mean "Wimbledon Live Video" which is a horizontal strip halfway down the left-hand side? I'm keeping an eye on that, but it's not quite the easy-access, all laid-out-neatly kind of thing I was expecting, and as I say, there aren't ten of them as promised, so I thought I must be missing something.

I've since seen them flash up that url on screen as well, so that seems to be their only offer, heh!

Found it at last - God knows why they can't just have a calendar/menu somewhere.

Court 12 live stream is currently showing the match before the one I want to see.
