Excellent

Although considering they have had rights to coverage of RG for years, it is overdue. Better late then never I guess. You can't fault the Wimbledon coverage though.

If you have sky, then you can get BBC interactive on that. You just have to plug it in, and it should work, for some channels, but you have to pay to get things like E4 and UKTV.
Great work though by the Beeb to bring us some coverage though.

Then you have Michael Jackson & that name speaks for itself, no hype needed at all.
