The plans include 1,000 hours of live online video coverage shown exclusively online. The new digital radio station, Five Live Olympics Extra, goes alongside the existing Five Live and 5 Live Sports Extra stations, which will also be broadcasting throughout the games.
Constant coverage of the games on BBC3 will cost around £4.5 million: it will have hourly bulletins after 11pm when normal BBC3 programming will resume.
Coverage of BBC Parliament will be put on hiatus during the Olympics unless parliament is recalled, but the Trust maintains that the plans will not have a huge impact on the BBC’s public services obligations.
The Trust has also asked the public to comment on how the £200,000 digital radio station should operate.
The Olympic games begin on the 27th July 2012 and end on the 12th August, followed by the Paralympic games from the 29th August to the 9th September.
