Whoa! Freaky!

I just idly looked at the BBC Olympic website and they're showing live women's football, Brazil v China.

The 2016 Olympics have started!

The OBS graphics are indeed much better than Sochi, IMO too. 

Costa Rica's Channel 11, part of the Repretel family of TV channels and radio stations there, will be the Costa Rican TV home of Rio 2016 with plans for 12-13 hours everyday starting Friday (with the Opening Ceremony live) from 6am Costa Rica/US/Canada/Mexico CT but would like to get things started by 8-9am. Especially with the 12-hour time slot from 6am-6pm exclusively cleared for the 2016 Rio Olympics with news program NC Eleven coming at 2-3pm. Family member Channel 6 is likely get designated as the Ticos Olympians home with Channel 4 for some special events.  Schedule has yet to made public for the total of 200 hours in this:

TNU, Television Nacional Uruguay, has the exclusive Uruguay national free-to-air TV broadcasting rights to Rio 2016 as the largest ever Pineyrua team ever sent goes across the border to Brazil as TNU shows this edition of the Summer Olympics 24 hours a day entirely in HD. During the Rio 2016 Olympic coverage, TNU will be bathed in the colors of Rio 2016 and the Celeste national color and will have a mobile unit that will cover several points of Montevideo bringing the Olympics to the different neighborhoods of the capital to show the Games. Actually starts today with Brazil vs. China women's soccer at 15:45 (3:45pm) Uruguay/Brazil time and then on Thursday with Brazil vs. South Africa in (mostly) U23 men soccer also at 15:45. TNU has its own hashtag campaign-- #ARioVamosTodos. 

On Wednesdays in a weekly basis, TNU has an Olympic preview show called Olimpicos at 22:30 (10:30pm) hosted by Diego Tabares and Martín Franco as they take a look at Piñeyrúa profiles with studio interviews and prognostications as Olimpicos also takes a look at the history and present of Team Uruguay. Of course the latest developments regarding Rio's setting the stage. You can take a look at the videos from the show here:

Tenetive, but pretty much accurate TV schedule for TNU's Rio 2016 coverage:

TNU goes by the numbers about the number of sports, medals, nations, venues, and even emotions with lots of footage from London with this Rio 2016 promo

 

Told you about the Belteleradiocompany of Belarus plans to show 500 hours of Rio 2016 out of the Belarussian Olympic Committe. Now we can confirm to you from its website which channels will cover them: Belarus 1, Belarus 2 (formerly TV LAD), and Belarus 5, where the bulk of the Rio 2016 coverage will be for BTRC. And those channels will have a combined 33 hours a day for the 500. Its coverage starts late Thursday night Belarus time at 23:55 (11:55pm, just before midnight) with the Argentina vs. Portugal men's soccer match on Belarus 5. Belarus 1 will focus largely on the daily blogs and diaries as well as both ceremonies. Live stream comes through tvr.by online. The TV guide can be seen here for all the three channels:

Press release announcing Belarus 1's live broadcast of the Opening Ceremony at Maracana Stadium in Rio De Janeiro starting with an Opening Ceremony preview show at 1:15am with the countdown at 2am:

First National Channel of Belarussian Radio sends its own team of journalists to Rio De Janeiro with their Olympic Diaries coming in 8 times a day--1.05, 5.11, 6.10, 7.55, 8.45, 15.15, 19.20, 23.15 all in Belarusian time--timely information about the performance of representatives of Belarus, interviews with the competitors and their coaches. As a result of performances of athletes in the ether will be invited well-known Belarussian experts who will review the achievements of the athletes. These can be listened in a range of FM, in digital standard DVB-T MPEG-4, in the package of digital television multiplex-1, as well as on-line on the Internet at the website radio1.by:

LNK, the Lithuanian News Channel, does both ceremonies again with Rio De Janeiro just like it did with Sochi two years ago under this cycle. The Opening Ceremonies will be shown live on LNK live at 1:50 am with perhaps a more convienent repeat airing August 6th at 19:30 (7:30pm) with streaming at www.lnk.lt. The companion promo shows footage from Vancouver, Beijing, Sochi (plenty of it), and London:

In a decidedly low-key press conference in Seoul's KBS Hall to announce KBS' Rio 2016 broadcast plans, judging from the looks of things, the network plans to show the Opening Ceremony on KBS1 with the closing on KBS2. KBS1 will take care of the more unpopular sports to South Koreans with KBS2 serving as the main Olympic channel. KBS' Olympic sports of focus are soccer, gymnastics, archery, cycling, fencing, volleyball, basketball, shooting, handball, swimming, track and field, taekwondo, wrestling, golf, diving, field hockey, rugby 7s, table tennis, badminton, boxing, rowing, marathon running, tennis, equestrian, judo, and weightlifting. Yeah more so than what SBS is doing with theirs. MBC comes next time:

Here is the Swedish OIympic women's soccer TV schedule for today, starting with Sweden vs. South Africa. All the games are televised there in Sweden, be it on TV3 (3 games), Visasat Fotboll OS (3 games), and Viasat OS 1-3 (2 games each of those three channels):

http://www.expressen.se/sport/os2016/os-2016-i-rio-schema-3-augusti-1/

Viasat Sweden sports director Per Nunsfeldt says the experience in broadcasting Sochi 2014 certainly helps them in proving that a commercial broadcasting entity, the first one ever, is more than capable in broadcasting the Olympics like a much bigger one with Rio De Janeiro as state broadcaster SVT would in the recent past--and earned positive responses from its telecast of Sochi after people accustomed to SVT doing it for so long got mad. When they got the rights, Viasat made money from ice hockey and soccer. Do get a studio inside Olympic Park. If that wasn't feasible, Copacabana Beach would have been the next option. But guests weren't guaranteed in going that direction. Nunsfeldt adds they're worried about what's ahead in the Swedish Olympic broadcasting once Discovery Communications takes over:

But Viasat/TV3/TV10 is worried about possible problems. Like power blackouts that can strike at certain areas of Rio De Janeiro happening to them during live broadcasts:

Sport TV Portugal starts its Rio 2016 Olympic coverage too with the women's pre-Opening Ceremony Olympic soccer with Sweden vs. South Africa live (actually in progress as I write this) on Sport TV 1. It will show all the women's matches from that day with France vs. Colombia coming in very early the next day. All but the Canada vs. Australia and Germany vs. Zimbabwe matches will be on Sport TV 1. CAN vs. AUS is on Sport TV 3 and GER vs. ZIM at Sport TV 2. Seems as though it won't be just two Sport TV channels but also Sport TV 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 that will get utilized in the coverage, though a couple will come in when there's an overlap. Or maybe Sport TV decided to add another channel or two.

Fijians can get their SKY Pacific Rio 2016 coverage with a minimum of 200 hours on the TVWAN Life Channel. Boxing, rugby sevens, swimming, soccer and track and field will be included that starts Thursday when Fiji takes on South Korea in men's soccer:

http://fijivillage.com/sport/Sky-Pacific-to-air-live-Olympics-coverage-25sk9r/

FBC TV starts its Olympic coverage at 3:50am Fiji time with the Fiji-South Korea soccer game with brand new channel FBC Plus joining on the coverage at 6;30am. FBC TV will air live events from Rio AND goes back to regular non-Olympic programming while FBC Plus will cover all lives games as well as events which were not aired previously. FBC Plus will also run daily replays once live coverage ends as it goes all 24 hours of Rio 2016. FBC is showing 4 women's soccer matches today starting with Sweden vs. South Africa, Australia vs. Canada, then after the break its USA vs. New Zealand and France vs. Colombia. Then on Thursday, there's 5 games with Iraq vs. Denmark, Honduras vs. Algeria, Germany vs. Mexico, Fiji vs. South Korea, and Nigeria vs. Japan. Opening ceremony is on Saturday late morning/early afternoon at 11am

Back to Mauritius with the MBC's Sports 11 showing the Sweden vs. South Africa live at 19:48 today with Brazil vs. China at 22:49. Thursday morning see Zimbabwe vs. Germany at 1:00 also live with tape delays of those three games later in the day. Brazil vs. South Africa ends the day live at 22:58 going over to Friday with Portugal vs. Argentina at 1:00, a replay of Honduras vs. Algeria at 3am, and Nigeria vs. Japan at 5am. Each getting a replay. There's also a documentary series called Faster, Higher, Stronger dealing with the 1500m: The Greatest Race and Swimming: One Stroke At A Time.

It's worth noting that TV3 Lietuva, having just seen the TV3 TV schedule, will not go 24/7 Olympic basketball on the channel when it starts Saturday. Unfortunately, it won't emulate the NBC Olympic Basketball Channel when it comes to this with live and replays of games. But it should. Maybe this is out of respect to assure the Rio 2016 Olympics won't get shoved down the throats of those who don't like the Olympics as much. Just comes mostly on the late afternoon and onto the evening with pre- and post game analysis (only 5 games are tape delayed). Will focus on of course Lithuania men's basketball team with accompanying footage and all their games, its own Rio 2016 special, and Team USA. But with other international teams with NBA stars of their own. Following is the TV3 Lietuva basketball TV schedule:

Kwesé Free Sports, which is part of Zimbabwe's Econet Media, has signed an agreement with the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA Network Service) to broadcast the Nigeria-USA pre-Olympic USA Basketball Showcase exhibition game live from Houston's Toyota Center at 01:00am Nigerian time on the August 2 that was also streamed live and free on Kwese Free Sports' website and platform si that Nigerians can see the D'Tigers:

Latina Television in Peru has the domestic rights to the Rio 2016 Summer Olympics from America Movil. But there's no schedule and any news of its coverage plans that I can see from its website. But it can't be any worse than what America TV--ATV--Canal 9 has done in the past. Can it?

Georgia's Channel 1 of the Georgia Public Broadcasting gets Rio 2016 and starts it with the Opening Ceremony live late night Friday at 2:55am Georgia time up to at least 7am with a replay at 12:45-16:00 (4pm). Then at 16:30 there's an Olympic Diary live recapping the moments of the previous day and what's to come before going to 3 hours of action. Channel 1 Georgia is just going on for the Olympic segments everyday for just 2-3 hour blocks twice a day not including the Olympic Diary like at 9am-12pm and then back for 17-20:00 preceeded by Olympic Diary by 30 minutes. Focus will be on the Georgian Olympians with highlights. Channel2 is not getting involved.

CT Sport on the Czech TV side is only airing the Brazil vs. China and Germany vs. Zimbabwe women's soccer matches, presented by Robert Zaruba and the second one by Lukáš Pečeně and Karel Rada with the rest of them on the streams.

Your friendly neighborhood media update guy sadly confirms that I can't enjoy the Rio 2016 Summer Olympics as much as he would very much like once again. Man, I certainly wish I did. For one thing, I'm working heavily in retail with this being the peaking back-to-school season with a combined 70 hours these two weeks. And it's tax-free weekend coming right up. Worse, I have none of the technology--laptop, smartphone, tablet, smart TV that will allow me to catch up when I could, so I can't watch the women's soccer games right now as I write this. Just may have to rely on Westwood One Sports Radio for now. :(    

Any of guys out there recording all this right now today worldwide starting with the women's soccer and the previews? How far are you and what do you plan to get? Surely those with the Xfinity X1 have a bigger advantage with the growing catalog of Olympic material since early summer. As I stated earlier, storage capacity on those things leaves something to be desired like expand it to 6TB. 

RTVE's 90-second long Rio 2016 promo with the styling and coloring of the imagery that could be used during the broadcasts like an intro.

 

Only the very first event in Rio 2016, the Sweden vs. South Africa women's soccer game live in Rio De Janeiro, is shown on Norway's TV2 Sportskanalen to kick things off. All the other women's soccer matches are live at TV2 Sumo. The next day, TV2 Sportskanalen will show live 3 men's soccer games--Iraq vs. Denmark, Brazil vs. South Africa, and Sweden vs. Colombia with all of them including the Honduras vs. Algeria, Mexico vs. Germany, Portugal vs. Argentina, Fiji vs. South Korea, and Japan vs. Nigeria games on TV2 Sumo as well. TV2 will do the live presentation of the Opening Ceremony at 1:00am (with a 9:30am repeat the following Saturday on TV2 right before TV2's primary Olympic coverage commences at 13:00) Norway time with a streaming also at TV2 Sumo.

Hours ago I looked at what Iceland's Stod 2 Sport channels are doing with Rio 2016. Problem is there isn't a lot of details pertaining to they're doing. Stod 2 Sport tomorrow is doing showing soccer from 15:50-18:05 and from 00:50-3:00 (Iceland time), which will be men's soccer. Stod 2 Sport 2 is showing 3 matches from 17:50-19:55, 19:55-21:55, and from 21:55-23:40. Stod 2 Sport 3 has a couple soccer games on that very day at 18:50-21:50 and 21:50-00:00 before signing off until August 7. Stod 2 Sport comes back with another soccer game from 7-8:40 (very likely a tape delayed game if not an encore presentation) before going to men's basketball at 12-13:40, 13:40-15;20, 21:15-22:55, and 22:55-00:35 on August 5 and will just show one basketball game from 21:50-00:10 on August 6 and then two on August 7 at 7:15-9:05 and 9:05-10:55 before going back to the soccer with two games at 21:50-23:55 and 00:50-3:10. Stod 2 Sport 2 gets two more soccer games on August 5 at 18:40-20:20 and 20:20-22 before its own basketball matches just at 17:05-19:10 and 1:20-3:25 on August 6.

When wasn't the Cafeteros, the Colombian women's soccer team, granted the same kind of respect on the main channels of Caracol and RCN in their Rio 2016 debut game against France while the programming was set up like their male counterparts will in their theirs tomorrow versus Sweden that will come on live 4-7pm Colombia Time? Because the men have a proven/familiar and solvent fan base for television. FYI, the men's game with Sweden will be on both Caracol and RCN at 4:30pm:

By the way, Caracol TV will air the Opening Ceremony live starting at 4:30pm up to 7pm. Regular coverage on Caracol comes on from 7am-2:30pm and 4-6pm with a 30-minute highlights show at 11:30pm on the first official day of competition. Then on August 7 it's 7am-12;30pm to break for news and then back on 3-6;30pm and 7:30-10:30pm on the second day August 8.

Just remember that ETV+'s Rio 2016 coverage is commentary-free in Estonia with no Russian at all.  

Flow Media launches its FlowRio2016Extra Olympic app:

Star Sports' channels aren't touching any pre-Opening Ceremony soccer games. But once 4am strikes on early Saturday morning with the Opening Ceremony live in Rio De Janeiro, it's mostly Rio 2016 with all the channels both in HD and SD. Star Sports 3HD and SS3 will broadcast the OC in Hindi with the rest in English. Highlights lasting for 1-hour (in both languages) come on after several hours before the real competition begins. Moreover, there's a Rings of Glory series also shown in both English and Hindi and RISE before the action begins at 16:00 (4pm) on all channels. Problem is, the TV guide doesn't specify what events will be on during those time slots...

ITV Azerbaijan certainly is. With two women's matches with Zimbabwe vs. Germany and Brazil vs. China today at 22;50 and 00:50 respectively. There's a fast-growing national women soccer scene with the investment in the young women with the recent past FIFA tournament there a couple years ago. Then its Brazil vs. South Africa (22:50), Portugal vs. Argentina (00:25), and Nigeria vs. Japan (3:50) for the men the next day. Opening ceremony comes on live at 2:30am Baku/Azeri time. Following a repeat presentation of the Opening Ceremony at 14:50 with highlights, the action kicks off at 15:25 (3:25pm). 

MRT1 in Macedonia starts their Rio 2016 telecast with two men's games Brazil vs. South Africa and Argentina vs. Portugal tomorrow starting at 20:25 to 1:05. 

But RTVS isn't with its TV channels Jedna and Dvotnka, restricting them to online streaming on its 5 streams 1, 2, 3, 4, and 8. 5-7 won't come until Opening Ceremony day. The women's games come on in the evening live at 18:00 (6pm) starting with Sweden vs. South Africa on the three different streams at this time.

BNT1 and BNT HD will have the Rio 2016 Opening ceremony both live from Rio De Janeiro's Maracana Stadium  at 2am and again at 21:00 (9pm) Bulgaria GMT on August 6 with journalists Boryana Tontcheva and Kamen Alipiev as the Bulgarian co-hosts. There will be more coming from BNT and TV+ next time:

Speaking of Repretel. What a bunch of wanker knobheads, they are. It's 2016 and the bulk of their coverage is on channel 11, a sister channel which has yet to broadcast in HD. Only events with Costa Rica athletes will have HD. Even the ceremonies will be in freaking SD. Unfucking believable.

Today starts Bulgaria's BNT Rio 2016 coverage on BNT1's and BNT HD's The Olympics Today with Tereza Marinova from 23:30, a preview where Bulgarian viewers will be able to see interviews with Bulgarian athletes with the Olympics ahead in the next two days like wrestler Daniel Alexandrov, cyclist Stefan Hristov, and the couple in rowing Georgi Bozhilov and Kristian Vasilev. Among the first guests at the Olympic studio FET with host Tereza Marinova and Methods Manchenko will be Secretary General of the Bulgarian Olympic Committee Belcho Goranov as they all look ahead as to how Bulgaria will fare in Rio. 

If I read this right Joran Jeltchev, who also will comment on gymnastics, and Tereza Marinova will also be involved in the presenting the Opening Ceremony.

TV+, Bulgaria's subscriber TV service, confirms its showing of Rio 2016 with the Olympic Games on TV+, F+, and И SPORT+HD. Doesn't specify (or more accurately can't translate yet) how many hours it'll show. But we do know the TV+ channels will show loads more than what BNT1/BNT HD will. Already started yesterday with the women's soccer matches. I think, based on the translations from the Cyrillic alphabet, they showed most, if not all, the women's pre-Opening Ceremony soccer matches. Are showing several of the men's games today, but not all. If more info arises regarding TV+, I'll pass them over to you:

LTV7 is replaying the Mision Londona profile of BMX biking gold medalist Maris Strombergs. Maris Rimenis, David Ernstreits, Reinis Osenieks, Andreis Tripans, and Andris Kreipans, Uģis Joksts, and Inese Vaikule are the LTV7 Rio 2016 personalities. It begins its sports coverage August 6 with a 1-hour soccer review at 15-16:00 of both the men's and women's first games:

The Viasat Baltic Sport Olympic channels are showing the women's and men's pre-Opening Ceremony soccer games on Viasat OS 1 (Brazil vs. China and France and Colombia/Mexico vs. Germany and Nigeria vs. Japan), Viasat OS 2 (Canada vs. Australia and USA vs. New Zealand/Honduras vs. Algeria and Sweden vs. Colombia), and Viasat OS 3 (Sweden vs. South Africa and Zimbabwe vs. Germany/Iraq vs. Denmark and Portugal vs. Argentina). Viasat Sport Baltic showed Sweden-South Africa, Brazil-China, USA-New Zealand, and France-Colombia also live with later reruns of the other two matches the next day, as will be the case with several of the men's ones simulcasted live and later like Iraq vs. Denmark, Brazil vs. South Africa, Portugal vs. Argentina, Fiji vs. South Korea, and Nigeria vs. Japan. Viasat OS 4 comes in with Brazil vs. South Africa and Fiji vs. South Korea. Only Viasat Sport Baltic, Viasat Sport OS 1, and Viasat Sport OS 4 are showing the Opening Ceremony and also the 15-minute Opening Ceremony pre-show at 1:15am live.

Bandsports' promo for the Rio 2016 Opening Ceremony 

I do think RAI Sport 1 and 2 are showing some pre-Opening Ceremony women's and men's soccer. 

MNB--for Mongolian National Broadcasting, the public broadcaster--acquired the Mongolian exclusive broadcasting rights to Rio 2016 from Dentsu, and it will be shown across 3 of its channels. MNB National Television will handle judo, wrestling, track and field, marathon, artistic gymnastics, rhythmic gymnastics, trampoline, and the triathlon. The Mongolian News Channel is doing archery, boxing, swimming, synchronized swimming, diving, long-distance swimming, taekwondo, weightlifting, and table tennis. The MNB Sports Channel has tennis, volleyball, soccer, basketball, fencing, cycling, beach volleyball, road cycling and BMX, and mountain biking. MNB is showing the pre-Opening Ceremony soccer, at least all the men's matches. and 3 women's soccer matches (Sweden vs. South Africa, Brazil vs. China, and Germany vs. Zimbabwe beginning at 00:30 (1:30am) with a pre-game show with a 30-minute EURO 2016 review at 3am interrupting things briefly.

Some other Olympic-themed Mongolian programming includes the brief 10-minute Olympic Onsluaght (or Olympic Stressed), which features things that are like what you see on any NBC fun fact or interesting piece, and Mongolian athletes: Olympic Ornaments. You can find both on MNB's website:

MNB looks back at the moment from London 2012 when South Korea's Ki Bo Bae won the women's individual archery gold

 

8KTV makes its global broadcasting debut in Rio De Janeiro with these Rio 2016 Summer Olympics. But many won't get it as many are still just getting settled with 4K and in some cases still into HD--several including NBC are downcasting to 4K. Alright if you actually have a 8KTV set right now. Or at a special viewing area:

http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2016/08/worlds-first-8k-tv-broadcasts-begin-for-rio-olympics/

Circumventing the delayed footage of the Opening Ceremony, anyone? Anyone interested? Living close to Canadian border and watching on CBC/SRC is another worthy option:

http://qz.com/750600/nbc-is-airing-the-rio-olympics-opening-ceremony-on-a-tape-delay-but-theres-still-a-way-for-americans-to-watch-it-live/

Very interesting that TVP Sport Poland showed three women's soccer matches--Sweden vs. South Africa, Brazil vs. China, and USA vs. New Zealand--on the first day and only one men's game--Portugal vs. Argentina and restrict the others including the Brazil-South Africa to its multiple online/mobile streaming channels. 

BBC Sport is among 60 global Olympic broadcasters willing to put up their free Rio 2016 Olympic highlights footage on YouTube. Not certain if NBC will do like likewise after how disappointed it was with London. More likely the CBC. But you'd think:

Radio Times' current issue has a 72-page extra Rio 2016 magazine preview. Anybody in Britain buying like they did with the London edition?

Does anyone have BBC intro clip?

The intro won't debut until tomorrow as the football has just been shown on the Olympic Channels using OBS titles.   It's highly likely though the titles will be an edit of the promo as has been the case since 2004.

Actually TVP Sport did show 4 women's soccer games, which included an extensive look-in of Canada vs. Australia for an hour before heading to the Brazil vs. China one. TVP Sport also did the Brazil-South Africa one prior to the Portugal-Argentina match. Anyway, there's 2000 online/mobile hours, much of this not TVP-telecasted, to go along with the 800 TV hours on TVP1, TVP2, and TVP Sport, and will no longer include TVP Info. 12 streams are included with the 3 TVP channels for the online/mobile that will make up those 2000 hours. TVP Sport becomes the Polish Olympic TV Channel and will only fill up with programming that's Olympic-related 24/7. TVP1's live coverage will be shown in two blocks. The first will be started at 17.20 and ended at 19.20 (Polish time). Next starts around 22.30 and will last until 6 in the morning. At TVP2, transmissions from Rio will start already around 13.15 and will last until 18:00. The next block will be started at 20.00 and ended at 5.00. In the cases of TVP1 and TVP2, the parallel transmissions are designed to allow viewers to freely choose what they want to watch. TVP sends a team of 45 people to Rio De Janeiro that includes TVP Sport director, Vladimir Szaranowicz. Among commentators, in addition Szaranowicz, will be: Dariusz Szpakowski, Peter Sobczyński, Przemysław Babiarz, Peter Dębowski, Marek Rudziński, Jacek Laskowski and Maciej Iwanski. Seven reporters will be hand to serve the Polish public, a separate team dedicated reporter and cameraman team will be on hand for sport.tvp.pl. When the retina (broadcast only on TVP1), handball (broadcast only in TVP2) and athletics TVP will have their own mini-studio in the arenas that athletes perform. The Warsaw studio personnel is led by Paulina Chylewska, Jacek Kurowski, Maciej Kurzajewski on TVP1 with Maciej Jablonski, Rafał Patyra, and Marcin Rams in TVP2. Among the special guests in the studio will TVP Polish Olympic medalists, are Otylia Jedrzejczak (triple medalist in swimming), Leszek Blanik (two-time medalist in gymnastics), Sylwia Gruchała (two-time medalist in foil) and Czeslaw Lang (Olympic silver medalist in road cycling). Włodzimierz Szaranowicz, Przemysław Babiarz, and Piotr Sobczyński will all be involved in hosting the TVP Polish commentary of the Opening Ceremony from Maracana Stadium.

And yes, M4 Sport did show some pre-Opening Ceremony soccer with Sweden vs. South Africa, Canada vs. Australia, Brazil vs. China, and USA vs. New Zealand for the women and men's soccer the next day on M4 Sport had Brazil vs. South Africa, Portugal vs. Argentina, Colombia vs. Sweden, and the tape delay of Iraq vs. Denmark in the early morning.

Nova Sport 1 and Nova Sport 2 in the Czech Republic and Slovakia only dealt with men's soccer. Nova Sport 1 played live Iraq vs. Denmark, Brazil vs. South Africa, Portugal vs. Argentina, and Fiji vs. South Korea. Nova Sport 2 had the other half in Honduras vs. Algeria, Mexico vs. Germany, Sweden vs. Colombia, and Nigeria vs. Japan. Several of those men's games will get a repeat airing the next day as we await for the Opening Ceremony coming live on Nova Sport 1. One thing that must be pointed out is neither Nova Sports channel will go 24 hours in its Olympic coverage. The next several days after the Opening Ceremonies there will be tennis, cycling, basketball, handball, and beach volleyball (Nova Sport 1) with boxing, soccer, handball, basketball, rugby, golf, and beach volleyball (Nova Sport 2) out of them. If I can find a full schedule I'll link it to you because the programming listings are vague without a click-on.

Actually Greece does have an Olympic pay-TV broadcaster for Rio 2016 to go along with ERT1, ERT2, ERT3, and ERT HD on the free-to-air side with its very troubled economy. Thought it was going to be NOVA there with its own version of the Nova Sports channels. But it's OTE with its coverage emphasis on the 97 Greek Olympians in Rio De Janeiro. OTE SPORT 1HD, OTE SPORT 2HD, 3HD, and SPORT OTE, OTE SPORT 4HD will broadcast more than 700 hours live programming, starting with the opening ceremony will start at 2.00am Saturday 8/6 and will enjoy live and in HD from the OTE SPORT 1HD. So this means no pre-Opening Ceremony soccer from them. Seems to me the OTE SPORT channels have a Rio 2016 2-hour preview program on loop until the Opening Ceremony as I looked into the interactive programming guide.

Most of the Olympic competition on the First National Ukrainian TV's 200 hours will get shown live.

TVCG 2 and TVCG1 in former fellow Yugoslavian neighbor in Montenegro will also carry it but not before a 30-minute studio show with the Olympic competition broadcasts (and will get started a little later at 1:50 after that) on the former coming at 12:45pm up to am before breaking and resuming at 9am for a recorded women's handball match between Montenegro and Spain and then going to men's water polo between France and Montenegro. TVCG 1 will get involved with the Olympics too late at night with live action pertinent to Montenegran athletes.

What ever happened to the NFL RedZone like channel that NBC had for Sochi? Is that going to be a thing in Rio?

I know it might be stupid thing to say, but why does NBC need to put the Opening Ceremony in context and show it on a delay? ABC didn't do that, and NBC didn't do it in Atlanta. when it was live.

Pfft, it's obvious.

Because nobody in the US that gives a crap about the Olympics will be home until 8pm.

I'm not sure if I misunderstood or misread, but isn't X1 supposed to stream events like nbcolympics.com? All I can find in their upcoming schedule are tv listings. I noticed during the soccer matches they only listed the broadcast networks they aired on rather than a direct feed of just the match. I'm hoping someone can help me by tomorrow morning. Thanks in advance and enjoy the ceremony tonight!

How many studios/sets does NBC have in Rio?

Apparently they have one on Copcabana Beach for daytime and late night.

I guess they have some studios in the IBC for primetime and NBCSN (?)

But I just saw Al Michaels introduce the daytime coverage on NBC live from a mountain facing Corcovado...

Does someone know how is it gonna play out?

For all I've said about how condescending NBC's line about needing to put the Ceremony in context is, they actually did viewers a favor in some respects by stretching out the Parade of Nations (the actual parade lasted 2:07, NBC's coverage of it lasted 2:34) and cutting out some of the speeches that I read online a lot of people thought were too long and boring.  Who gives a $hit what ABC and NBC did before.  Would it have been nice if the ceremony was live?  Sure.  But I can forgive NBC to an extent because in some ways, they made the best of the delay.

Supposedly, the daytime show is going to split between the IBC and Copacabana.  Primetime will be at the IBC.  NBCSN will probably make use of both

Streaming coverage so far from NBC is excellent.  I have multiple devices going, haven't had any real issues.  Major improvement over what they offered back in 2012 which had issues all over the place.

Viewership for NBC's coverage of the opening ceremony was the lowest since 1992.  17.2 rating for the primetime hours and 16.5 for the full broadcast.  The London ceremony got a 23.0 rating.  Not a good sign for NBC viewership for the rest of the Games if ceremony viewership is down 25%.

Something odd happening with the UK ratings (which only go up to 2am, because that's when "broadcasting Friday" officially ends).

BBC1's coverage of the first 2 hours of the ceremony got an average of 2.73 million viewers- but that was only a 50% share of viewing in that timeslot.

I suspect, therefore, that the figure does not include ratings for the no-commentary version on the Red Button channels. When the full details are known, it may turn out that a couple of million viewers made the same decision as me and chose the Red Button, pushing the total viewing to somewhere near 5 million.

Going to be a short one due to my massive work schedule--tax-free weekend here--hope to return Monday.

Infront Sports & Media brings in worldwide Olympic sponsor Coca-Cola and Emirates Airlines as exclusive Rio 2016 Sub-Saharan Africa TV coverage sponsors throughout all 46 nations there for all 17 days:

http://www.infrontsports.com/news/2016/08/infront-signs-coca-cola-and-emirates-as-exclusive-broadcast-sponsors-for-rio-2016-olympic-games-in-sub-saharan-africa/

We got some idea of what TVSH Albania will have for its Rio 2016 coverage. Problem is, their schedule online only last for a day and not for a several days' stretch and beforehand. Therefore I won't be able to play catch up. The Opening Ceremony was actually televised live with a 2-hour highlight replay at 11:00 then things begin at 14:00 (2pm) with Serbia-Hungary water polo, China-Netherlands women's volleyball, some highlights, men's basketball games USA vs. China, Australia vs. France, and USA vs. France women's live with only news, music, and some programming listings interrupting. Thus never going to be a marathon. Don't know what RTSH Sport's plans are since it's not mentioned on the website.

Radio y Television Guatemala's Canal 13 (Trecevision)/Chapin TV showed the Opening Ceremony at 5pm live yesterday:

 

Wikipedia and the Olympic Broadcasters list says that Teleamazonas in Ecuador is broadcasting the Olympics. But its online TV guide hasn't been updated since mid-July.

Didn't get to Turkey until now as TRT1 and TRT Spor showed the Opening Ceremony at 2:00. But it's the TRT 3 SPOR that's showing the Olympic competition with   Olimpiyat Yolu (Olympic Road), the Opening Ceremony replay, 5 Rings From 5 Continents, judo, boxing, artistic gymnastics, shooting, women's weightlifting, Turkey-France women's basketball, and swimming on the first official day with a replay of that very same Turkey-France game plus the Australia-Turkey women's game, trap shooting, men's weightlifting, the Olympic Flame segment, and women's table tennis the next day. Must check to see if TRT did the pre-Opening Ceremony soccer. Because of other sports commitments like in soccer with UEFA Champions League, sports news, fitness shows, and mugla oil wrestling, it can't go truly all out with Rio 2016 and focus on sports with strong Turkish appeal. 

The Dominican Republic will actually have some national FTA Rio 2016 Olympic TV through CDN SportsMax 24 hours on Claro TV channel 8, Wind Telecom, 28 national and 38 telecable in Aster also is the channel 67 television along with Claro Sports:

Can't find anything for Malta: Tried several times to see if TVM was going to show them. It's TV guides have nothing but the Malta Olympic Special I mentioned about earlier.

BeIN Sport, the Middle East version, has BeIN Sports along 13 HD channels devoted to Rio 2016 right now with its massive presentation. In a matter of days I'll get hopefully some general coverage plans.

Paraguay TV is committed to showing 250 horas of Rio 2016 during the first Olympics inside South America with an emphasis of the Paraguyan athletes:

BRAZIL : OC records 350% more viewers than London in 2012 .

olimpiadas-2016.jpg

 

The opening ceremony of 20h00 ace 00h05 on Brazilian time record growth of 350% . Using São Paulo as a reference, were 8.7 million residents of the city watching. The audience in Brazil is measured in points , the city of São Paulo is used as a benchmark for the market . If we make a simple account of the audience was:

88 million Brazilians watching the OC .

This number does not consider audience peaks. It's just the average per minute ceremony . What is very significant . The share of transmission was 80% on time. -

CONCLUSION:

The 2016 Olympic Games to become the Brazilian TV are an absolute success!!!!!
