Archive: UK TV coverage of world swimming championships

The table below shows a summary of the broadcast TV coverage of the swimming from Barcelona 2013 available in the UK. This is only evening sessions but Eurosport is also covering most heats session. As you can see it’s not possible to watch all of the swimming finals live, but most things will be covered. What’s not clear is how widely the BBC red button coverage will be available. Some pages on the BBC Sport website suggest that the stream will be on the HD red button only (which is only available on HD platforms and not on Sky) whole others indicate the normal red button service (available on all digital TV platforms) is being used.

There’s also the usual risk of Eurosport’s coverage being affected by overrunning live sport beforehand, or that swimming will simply be bumped from the schedule.
