This morning the BBC has announced its plans for domestic coverage of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games and it's good news for mobile watchers. Via the BBC iPlayer and BBC Sport apps for smartphones, tablets and Smart TVs as well as on the web you'll be able to watch live and on-demand coverage of every minute of action from the games.

Glasgow 2014 will be BBC Sport's biggest ever digital Commonwealth Games with up to 17 live video streams available across any device - up from six streams at Delhi 2010.

All the action from every event, sport and venue will be available live and on-demand across PCs, tablets, mobiles and connected TVs, with even greater choice and interactivity than ever before:

The iPlayer will give you access to live TV, but only one stream at a time. The BBC Sport app and website however will provide access to all 17 different streams. The BBC iPlayer app for Android and iOS also has Chromecast support, which is yet another outlet for watching all that content. The Commonwealth Games runs from July 23 until August 3 and this level of online based coverage is second only to the London 2012 Olympic Games.

But given the amount of TV coverage that will also be devoted to the games, how many of you plan to watch on your mobile devices?

The BBC iplayer app is the best of the bunch when it comes to the UK catchup TV apps. It is such a shame that considering there the only channel to benefit from the licencing fee, that the majority of it's programming schedule has got to be one of the worst.
