  1. PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Media Updates

    PyeongChang 2018: Coverage in Brazil? There is a problem regarding the transmission of PC2018 in Brazil, the broadcasting rights of the event were acquired by TV GLOBO until 2032. The channel is an absolute leader of audience with a 40% share of televisions on free to air TV. In cable TV the channel owns the SPORTV network that has the leadership in the sports segment. The big problem is that GLOBO TV does not usually cover the winter edition, in fact the first time the Winter Olympics were shown on free TV was in Vancouver 2010, at that time RECORDTV (second broadcaster in audience) exhibited about 80 Hours and got a higher than expected audience, but nothing extraordinary. In Sochi 2014, the Olympic cycle for having Rio 2016 received the broadcast of TV GLOBO, RECORDTV and BAND. The GLOBO TV that made a gigantic and magnificent coverage of Rio 2016, broadcast only 10 hours of Sochi 2014 hidden in the dawn of the channel. RECORDTV, which was the founder of free TV broadcasting, recorded low rates and BAND transmitted the most hours, but its audience result was low. What to expect from 2018? Should GLOBO TV broadcast the Winter Olympics? We do not have details of transmission plans yet. RECORDTV does not intend to broadcast Olympic Games in 2018 and 2020. Brazilians can be restricted to a minimum coverage on TV GLOBO or watch a greater coverage in SPORTV (pay TV). A feather.
  2. Trouble-Free Games for PyeongChang?

    I believe that PyeongChang will be a formidable issue compared to Rio and Sochi, the press will always lift negative aspects, in winter games this can be boosted by lack of snow. My biggest concern is that the games have a proper look and that there is a wide attendance for the sports sessions.

    I'm afraid of choices Tokyo and Pyeongchang will do. It is the worst logos I've ever seen.
  8. Rio 2016: Your verdict

    Analysis: Thank you Rio de Janeiro, it was interesting! In recent months very critical of the Olympic Park and the Olympic ceremonies as well as specific criticisms of the performance of the country in the organization of the games. Just now closing time we go to a general analysis? I will divide into topics. Opening ceremony: It was Ok! The ceremony was too simple compared to Beijing, tv great moments with the '14a' and the Brazilian music segment all there seemed truly Brazilian. In comparison there were horrible times like the cauldron lighting that should be the peak of the ceremony and seemed little creative. The national anthem was a nice moment, but maybe I would have put more children near the flag. What disappointed me is that there were so many people in the choreography, I was thinking that in London there were more dancers. The boos to the President, Michel Temer was something expected. Brazilian booed Lula da Silva (Pan-American Games of 2007), Dilma Rousseff (Cup 2013 Confederations) and even cursed countless times the former President of the Republic in the World Cup 2014, with heavy offenses. Yet surveys show that Brazilians prefer Michel Temer. Transport and Mobility: Everything seemed to work properly in the city for those who needed to go to the competition venues. However ordinary locals were affected, purchases of city dwellers who came from other states delayed several days before the time restriction for vehicles. Sports: It was exciting to see some games decided in the final moments, but overall not excited me like London in 2012. Performance of 'Team Brazil'. It was ok. Brazil won an amazing medal in Pole Vault and gold in football was sensational, but overall lacked medals in tennis, swimming and judo. The performance of women's football was unfair. The case of athlete of diving left me upset because I hope dedication of the athletes in the Olympic Village. Media. The TV GLOBO was my 'official broadcaster'. The broadcaster has invested heavily in TV broadcasts and an amazing structure. At first I did not like the plans of the channel to have 170 hours of broadcasts, but I think it was appropriate. The channel broadcast all relevant times the national team. What made me upset was the performance of TV RECORD, who failed to show significant moments. The SPORTV with its 16 transmission channels was also a prominent part. The ratings success of course, are the most viewed games in history. I believe that growth in Brazil will be able to cancel the fall in the United States. Public at the venues. I found it very nice to see the stadiums full to watch women's Braisl. But I found absurd empty seats in athletics and volleyball. The size of the arenas is appropriate. The problem is the price of the tickets in my opinion should be 30% more affordable for qualifying events. GENERAL NOTE: 7 points. Strengths: - Climate of Brazilians. Negative points: - The minority segment of society that wanted to mix their political frustrations with the Olympic Games. - The performance of the national team. - The low attendance in the stadiums. Rio deserved the games? Competitors were Madrid, Tokyo and Chicago. I think that if I were a member of the IOC at the time would have chosen Rio de Janeiro, the jingoism that it was the Brazil at the time. The Rio de Janeiro is applied result of the ambitions of some politicians who felt the 'Rio 2016' the coronation of his ambitions. Surely, if there were no economic crisis and the wave of protests, Dilma Rousseff, Eduardo Paes and Ségio Cabral surfariam for high popularity. If the election were today I would have granted to host the Olympic Games to Chicago. RANKING OF OLYMPICS GAMES (Only I accompanied) 1. London 2012 (Note 9/10) 2. Vancovuer 2010 (Note 8/10) 2.

    The hearing on TV that was already high literally exploded! The transmission with the largest audience of the Brazilian TV in the decade .
  10. Rio 2016 Olympic Media Update

    BRAZIL : 92 million watch ' Football - Brazil vs Germany' According to preliminary data of IBOPE the final of the men's game was an absolute success. The sum of the open channels reached 46 points in São Paulo ( the main town used by the advertising market ) . If we use Sao Paulo as reference are: 92 million viewers in Brazil In London 2012, Brazil reached the final against Mexico which was defeated at that time were 34 million viewers . An increase of + 170% in the audience. Football Final - RIO 2016 equals audience of the 2014 World Cup . The audience of 46 points in Open TV equals the result achieved in 2014 with the games of the national team.

  12. Football in 2016

    It was amazing! I live in a small town in the state of Parana with 8,000 residents . The streets were empty during the game , all at home watching on TV . After the penalty from Neymar I could see and hear the fireworks fired by people in various parts of the city.
  13. Rio 2016 Look of the Games

    What motivates most Brazilians is to see the national delegation. What name Brazil has in athletics worth paying the very expensive sessions playoffs ?
  14. I just want to laugh. The protests are a minority everywhere , the bulkier were booing at the opening that were expected ( including Dilma if she were president ) . Now for the facts. The Senate likely will approve later this month the definitive removal of Dilma , and this causes concern of the political left . So they try to embarrass Brazil in the Olympic Games. Research shows that the majority of the population supports the impeachment . The acting president is not seen as a good person , but most think it better than Dilma . I do not know the information that Temer is ineligible . The TV GLOBO is doing very well with the Olympics , the audience is spectacular .
  15. How successful will Rio 2016 be?

    The games are reasonable. The positives for me are: The atmosphere of the Brazilian public is contagious, Brazilians have a fanatical passion for 'Team Brazil'. And even though criticized by foreigners is really amazing (even if the athletes do not correspond with medals in most cases). The arenas are beautiful in general, the one that I think is horrible Arena Gymnastics and the Maria Lenk. Negative points: The OC was only reasonable, it was worth watching but it is something q does not excite much. In addition, the cauldron lighting was truly turn-off. The ridiculous mistakes of the organization as a green pool. Brazil Team performance is weak. The Olympic Stadium is horrible! I saw on TV today the first evidence and looked horrible, the lawn is bad and missing a lot of decoration. - Overall the Rio 2016 Olympics will be a just 'Okay', far from what was thought in 2009. - My biggest fear is that the loss of interest and global audience at the Olympic Games be repeated in 2020.
