bbc sport commonwealth games 2014

The BBC has unveiled its plans for coverage of the Commonwealth Games, and they include online, mobiles and tablets.

In fact, it's set to be the biggest event BBC Sport has covered since London 2012.

This year's games – which takes place in Glasgow, and last from July 23 until August 4 – has more live streams than the Delhi 2010 Commonwealth Games. The total video tally is more than 1,300 hours.

Press the Red Button, and you can access up to seven extra streams. If you have the BBC Connected Red Button, you'll be able to access the full range.

The BBC laid out its plans in a blog post.

iPlayer will show highlights and full-length replays of every event, plus it'll simulcast the BBC One and BBC Three coverage.

The BBC Sport mobile and tablet apps will provide customised notifications – choose between alerts for all the medals, just the golds, or even which nation you want to hear about.

There will also be a dedicated Commonwealth Games page of the BBC Sport website, which will host all the live video and radio streams, as well as rolling highlights, text commentary, live votes, and a live medal table.

This can be used as a second screen on your mobile, tablet, or laptop.

Comments and opinions will also flood in from social media, email, and SMS, both from fans, and from the team at BBC Sport.
