Extended Welsh language highlights of each game will be shown on S4C, at 10.30pm on the day of each game.
Lauren Jenkins will lead the S4C presentation team, while Sarra Elgan will bring the latest news from the Lions camp in South Africa.
Gareth Charles will be joined in the commentary box by Gwyn Jones and Sioned Harries, while Shane Williams, Jamie Roberts, Bryn Habana, Mike Phillips, Elinor Snowsill and Nigel Owens will be among the big names providing analysis throughout the tour.
Lauren Jenkins said: “Every Lions tour is a special occasion but the fact that they will be taking on the current world champions, South Africa, gives this tour an extra dimension.
“The Springboks are revered for their toughness and physicality and they will be determined to defend their proud record on their own territory. We’ll be following the progress of the Welsh players in the squad and look forward to you joining us.”
The series begins at 10.30pm on Saturday 3 July, with highlights from the opening match of the tour, against the Emirates Lions.
