BBC to stream Wimbledon and Olympics through Facebook!

BBC has just announced that they are going to stream video from Wimbledon and Olympics through their Facebook channel.

This is going to be one of the largest such collaboration between a media company and Facebook for a live event.

BBC spoke about their plans:

During the Olympic Games, the BBC will run 24 simultaneous streams in addition to the main BBC channels.

This stream would only be available to web users in the UK region. BBC is currently using it to stream Wimbledon. The real test would be the video content from Olympics.
