ESPN and DirecTV will once again share their multi-camera platform for the Wimbledon tennis championships, broadcasting from 23 June to 6 July.
The network will deliver up to six simultaneous live signals during the tournament's first week, in which most of the matches are played, as well as additional features such as live results and statistics.
The tennis season's third Grand Slam will feature stars including Federer, Nadal and Djokovic, who will fight for the trophy of the ATP's oldest tournament while Andy Murray tries to repeat last year's victory.
The two pay-TV networks have already tried this joint broadcasting, most recently during the year's second Grand Slam, Roland Garros, one month ago.
During Wimbledon's last rounds, to be held during the tournament's second week, each channel will broadcast the matches, as there are none simultaneously played. Both networks will also broadcast the tournament via their mobile and online platforms
