BBC Proms 2014

The BBC has announced it will make every performance from Proms 2014 available live and on-demand on BBC iPlayer.

Every performance – including the Pet Shops Boys' musical homage to mathematician and codebreaker Alan Turing, and sets from Rufus Wainwright and Paloma Faith – will be available in HD Sound. Every Prom will also be available for 30 days after its broadcast date.

Viewers will be able to watch previous Proms too. A highlights reel will also be available through the BBC iPlayer Proms collection.

A dedicated Proms button will be available on the BBC iPlayer Radio app.

The BBC's Playlister service is also getting in on the action. Proms presenters will recommend songs from the season – viewers can then tag any of the songs and add them to their own playlists to be listened to at any time.

This is the latest event to get the iPlayer and Red Button treatment. Previously, the BBC offered six HD livestreams of the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics. Viewers of Glastonbury 2013 could pick from six stages.

The BBC also has an expanded roster of presenters for Proms 2014, including soprano Danielle de Niese, violinist Daniel Hope, and conductor and organist Wayne Marshall.

Returning presenters include Katie Derham, Tom Service, Suzy Klein, Pretoc Trelawny and Samira Ahmed.

Proms 2014 starts on 18 July and will run until 13 September. For the full run-down of the programme, have a look at the BBC's microsite.
