Rio 2016 Olympic Media Update


Recommended Posts

Thanks, Quaker! :) Pretty much everything in the hog as far as that goes. Turns out there's actually an expansion of the Telemundo/NBC Universo combined hours up to 273.5, and there officially WILL be VR Rio 2016 coverage. With Telemundo and NBC Universo, we don't know exactly how the coverage will be conducted. My guess is the two will showcase the Rio 2016 Summer Olympic scheduling coverage together--though perhaps with some overlapping, one will come in the daytime and the other will handle the evening--instead of alternating days like Germany's ZDF and ARD does. Doesn't really say outside of NBCSN where else the boxing sessions will head to. Do you project it may spread itself around the other family of NBCUniversal's English family of TV networks not named Bravo and Golf Channel?

Add Albania's RTSH and pay-TV rights holder SuperSport (not to be confused with the South African version) to the list of broadcasters that will handle Rio 2016. Specific details are forthcoming like which TVSH channel of the two it has and exactly how many SuperSport channels will be involved:

Don't worry NBCUniversal. There's still plenty of star power on USA Basketball that will grab the American sports fans' attention even without LeBron and Steph. We don't always need them. Ratings will still be solid on NBC Sports Network and likely their games will fall on our primetime. Those two understandably have their legit reasons in not participating like injury recovery and the need to rest up following the grueling NBA grind. The FIBA-issued international basketball/NBA offseason schedule doesn't always quite help. On the other hand, I'm a hardcore basketball fan and enjoy international basketball quite much--and far from a casual fan who may be more reliant on star power as a flavor to get invested. As for the international competition gap they enjoy, there's nothing really can be done to offset that until "we play the Games" (ditto for their USA women counterparts), no matter how deeper the international competition has become or lopsided the matches will be be:

The basketball team loses a little punch without Curry or LeBron on the roster. As the article incorrectly noted, we're a long ways from the Dream Team of 1992, 1 of the best collections of basketball talent ever assembled. But if you look at the 2012 team that included LeBron plus Kobe and Carmelo and Chris Paul and Russell Westbrook, that team would kick this team's ass. There's less star power now than ever before. There's no compelling narrative. So this will probably be least interesting USA basketball team since NBA players have been participating.

And the schedule for both basketball tournaments has already been set. None of the US games are in primetime. Yes, that's by design. All but 1 of the men's games start at 6pm ET (perfect happy hour material for NBCSN, just like it was with London). Most of the women's games are late morning or early afternoon.

Of note, Tom Hammond is hosting the track & field trials. Kenny Albert will be on play-by-play. Not sure if that means anything in terms of Rio assignments. Albert doesn't usually work summer events for NBC after hockey season as he is committed to Fox.

That Thai TV Pool of Olympic broadcasting TV channels comprising of Channel 3, Channel 5, Channel 7, Channel 9 (MCOT HD), and NBT is now projected to massively lose money off of its 420 million bhat broadcasting fee, its most expensive ever, because the group has only raised 20% of its TV advertising sales also meant for the Olympic sublicensing towards its digital channels like for BEC's Channel 3's 3 digital channels. At a time when Thailand is poised to win some medals over in Rio De Janeiro:

Meh. I wouldn't think this is a bad thing that there's less star power. Too many big heads vying for all the attention doesn't always work. Remember Athens 2004? Lots of star power, and we only got a bronze medal.

And remember the Miracle On Ice in 1980? Sure it's hockey, but it was a team entirely made of rookies and college players, yet we got a gold medal, beating the powerhouse that was the Soviet Union at the time as well as Finland.

That's interesting. Maybe Tom Hammond is retiring at some point, because i've heard Kenny Albert do play by play on the "B" hockey games the past few Winter Games. He's the guy that will take over for Hammond i think. He also did the Western Conference Finals for NBC this past Hockey season so maybe they are grooming him to take Hammond's place at some point. Surprised Tom is hosting: he's the voice i associate with some of the great US gold medal moments(along with John Tesh, Dan Hicks, Al Trautwig, Russ Hellickson, Arlo White and Tim Ryan.

[sarcasm]What's the Miracle On Ice? Something I should remember?[\sarcasm] I put that up as the greatest and most significant sporting event in US history, but what's your point? NHL players are in the Olympics now, but might not be in 2018. How much less interesting would that tournament be if the players are no-names? This isn't the days of the cold war anymore where you have a big rivalry like USA-Soviet Union.

As for basketball, yea I remember 2004. Do you remember 1996 and 2000 and 2008 and 2012? Let alone 1992, speaking of big heads vying for attention. How'd that work out for everyone? Other than 2004, the US is undefeated at the other 5 Olympics since NBA players have participated. They're undefeated at each of the last 2 World Cups which each didn't necessarily feature all of the best players team USA could have put out there. Yea, there was a down period for a while where the US wasn't as dominant as they usually are. So it seems like really backwards logic to talk how having the best players doesn't always work because 1 time they didn't win gold (versus 5 times that they did). Or highlight the 1 improbable upset the US hockey team pulled off versus all the times they didn't. Is the US probably going to win gold with less than their best? I think they are. But would they be better off with LeBron and Curry (if he was healthy, which he's probably not) and some of the other big names out there? Not a doubt in my mind they would be.

Maybe Tom Hammond has requested that he be a host rather than PBP but wouldn't Albert be scheduled to do baseball for Fox that week anyway?

That's interesting. Maybe Tom Hammond is retiring at some point, because i've heard Kenny Albert do play by play on the "B" hockey games the past few Winter Games. He's the guy that will take over for Hammond i think. He also did the Western Conference Finals for NBC this past Hockey season so maybe they are grooming him to take Hammond's place at some point.

Hammond has been easing his way into retirement for sometime now and it's probably a mutual decision between him and NBC to scale back on his workload. I doubt he's upset at losing Notre Dame games. NBC obviously had a succession plan with figure skating to hand that over to Terry Gannon. And Hammond still covers horse racing, which I'm guessing will be the last event he covers before he fully retires. I had figured Rio would be his swan song on the Olympics and on track & field. So I'm at a loss trying to figure if this is by his request or if it's NBC's succession plan, similar to what they did with figure skating in Sochi.

As for Albert, you should remember he also works for Fox, particularly in the summer and the fall. That's why he only does the Winter Olympics for NBC and never the Summer. In fact, Fox has him listed to cover a game this Saturday, so starting to wonder how he'll be in 2 places at once (more on that in a sec). So I don't know that NBC has the authority to pull him away from Fox during the summer when he's usually covering baseball for them. Not sure I see this as a more permanent role for him either. Because..

What of Mike Tirico. I mentioned it on another thread that all of the prominent hosting positions seem to be accounted for. Because of his contract with ESPN, he and NBC can't discuss his role at the Olympics. So perhaps he's the new track & field guy to replace Hammond? And Albert is just the fill-in for the trials since Tirico is currently in Europe? Just speculating on this one, but it's an interesting theory.

1 last thing.. you're leading voices associated with great US gold medal moments and Arlo White is on there but Charlie Jones is not? Come on!

Yeah i forgot about Charlie Jones. Could add Don Criqui too since he was on swimming when Janet Evans had her 3 gold haul in 88, and you could add Trumpy and Enberg too.. And if you go back to the ABC and CBS days, Frank Gifford, Al Michaels, Keith Jackson, Bob Beattie, Curt Gowdy, Gary Bender, Bill Flemming, Jim Lampley, Jack Whitaker, Howard Cosell, Chris Schenkel, Dick Stockton, Verne Lundquist, and i am forgetting a few from the CBS era. NBC will need a few new voices, and that's where were seeing Gannon, Tirico, Albert, and a few others take their places in terms of PBP voices.

85 hours certainly is less than what the CBC plans to offer in its own 100 hours worth. Might have to do with the French language option of VR coverage there as opposed to sports breath. Does make me wonder if what the CBC and ZDF/ARD will offer will come under a day's delay too.

Case by case basis for sure for Bob Costas. But certainly don't expect him to be around hosting when NBC's current Olympic rights contract expires with the 2032 Summer Olympics. I'd say he stops after Tokyo 2020:

http://www.adweek.com/news/advertising-branding/bob-costas-says-hell-stop-hosting-olympics-when-hes-had-long-enough-run-172178

Speaking of potentially outgoing hosts, I think with Australia's Seven with Bruce McAvaney being in his mid-60s, he'll start to be eased out during 7's current Olympic broadcasting run up to Beijing 2022 after Rio 2016. I also believe this may be his last Opening Ceremonies hosting and potentially studio anchoring in the future or a little beyond during this period. He could still call the track and field (athletics to you) for a couple more. Mel McLaughlin IS the future for Seven now that she's there and is likely groomed for Australian Olympic primetime hosting on location--and be the top face for Seven Network's sportscasting. She was there on location hosting for Ten in Sochi at the studio right at the venues, so she's got the experience. Wished she would be on location in Rio De Janeiro presenting the Opening and Closing Ceremonies and be on location as a studio anchor instead of holed up in Sydney's Redfern area. Oh well, there's Tokyo 2020 for Mel.

Get ready for CBC's Rio 2016 Summer Olympics new-look website (in its early version):

Read how successful US volleyball gold medalists Chris Marlowe and Kevin Wong prepare themselves in the daunting task ahead for the upcoming and popular Olympic beach volleyball competitions at Rio's scenic and iconic Copacabana Beach with NBC Sports. They don't share the same perspective during the course of action and adjust now that FIVB mandates a faster style of play to fit the TV programming windows. Look for them to stop by at NBC Olympics' studios nearby (just hope there won't be any more corpses by then):

http://www.fivb.com/en/about/news/nbc-prepared-for-the-daunting-task-on?id=62407

Former figure skater Daisuke Takahashi, former judoka Tadahiro Nomura, and former synchronized swimmer Mikako Kotani will be among Fuji TV's Rio 2016 Olympics sportscasters in full capacity as its central figures during Fuji's Games coverage. Fuji's "strongest team" yet. They will bring a complete coverage by interviewing both Japanese and world athletes. It will be up to them to draw the sense of realism, strength and the intensity out of the athletes and the competitions, as they give us full accounts and advance information from the venues as well as from the local studio. They have been chosen because they know better than anyone else the weight and importance of a medal so they will focus on facial expressions and real intentions of the athletes. Apparently, gymnastics will be a part of it.

Shame Macao doesn't have its own NOC so that its athletes can compete; in Brazil, they'd be right at home. But that won't stop the Chinese special administrative Portuguese area's TDM Teledeporte 1-2 from taking on the Summer Olympic Games broadcasting on TDM Teledeporte 1-2 as its perrenial Olympic Channel once again with the feed likely coming from Brazil's Globo/SporTV and a little bit perhaps from Record and Bandeirantes:

I wonder if this will turn out to be the opening title sequence for CCTV's Rio 2016 coverage that will have CCTV-5 and CCTV-5+ as its anchors because I never viewed the Beijing version on YouTube. You'll notice the new CCTV headquarters in Beijing (since 2008) in the background behind the sprinter as well as the Bird's Nest instead of the Rio venues:

Makes us wonder why Canal + Afrique didn't want to handle the rights instead of TV5Monde Afrique, which apparently has no multiple channels. With Canal+ Afrique's multiple channels, it's certainly more than capable to produce its own temp Olympic channels and be as comprehensive and wall-to-wall in its French-language broadcast coverage throughout Sub-Saharan Africa that can easily rival SuperSport's English counterpart.

Apparently there will be plans from America Movil's Claro Sports to have its Olympics coverage this August on Ultra HD. Plus there are presentations on the importance of sports programming for pay TV, where personalities like Leonardo César Turner and German Hartenstein at ESPN, Pedro Garcia from SporTV, and Eduardo Zebini from Fox Sports all explaining how sports programming plays an essential role in the strategy of the operators. This edition closed with the presence of several national athletes, who will discuss their sporting careers, their expectations for the games this year, and its participation in television coverage of pay. All at the ABTA 2016 convention in Rio De Janeiro:

We're gonna get much more news and developments once we get into the final full month before the Olympics that's July, when we'll get a lot of the info from Europe, Latin America/West Indies, Asia/Pacific, and Africa once Wimbeldon and the Tour De France are out of the way. Which can go right down to the very start...

German Olympic broadcasters have equipment stolen on arrival at Rio 2016

1450046025209.jpg

UOL's in Sao Paulo
Two German broadcasters ARD and ZDF, were targets of a robbery on the night of Thursday in Rio de Janeiro. The equipment taken the stations would be part of the studios of the channels in the Olympic Park. The information was confirmed by the Civil Police.
A cart with two containers was approached by bandits on the avenue when Brazil made their way to the Olympic Park.

France 3, one of the France Télévisions channels have unveiled a charming and hilarious promo for Rio 2016.

http://medias.lenodal.com/video.php?id=18517

It features Olympic athletes moving in and living in what seems to be a French-looking hotel. Unfortunately, for Mr. Hotel Porter and the guests at his hotel, the athletes seem to make their experience a little less enjoyable.

Hope you enjoy!

BRAZIL: new commercial of TV GLOBO

In addition to the new commercial TV GLOBO , I think quite worth remembering that the promotion of brands already enter the atmosphere of the Olympic Games .
Yesterday all the time I watched TV , I'd say 50% of the advertising was related to olympic sport or 2016 .
I'm looking forward to the coming weeks.
People already talk of the Olympics .
The game atmosphere will grow from July 31 , when the TV GLOBO begins to anchor all its news programs from the olympic park .

The Olympic hotel porter seems to take it all in stride. The other hotel residents just seem bewildered by the athletes to me.

Yes, no news yet from Mediacorp, SingTel or StarHub about the coverage of Rio 2016. Mediacorp is focusing to promote subscription of Euro 2016 package in its Toggle App. Very bad news for Singapore sport fans if no live coverage on TV, as we are the 1st YOG host.

That green building with windows, next to the Future Arena, are glass studios for TVs.

It was in a very good spot , but I might put it on a level where you stay over the side of the arena of the future. There will pass a lot of people towards ' Fan Fest ' , and gives a view of the Swimming Stadium, which is certainly the largest audience or higher in the sports that are practiced in the Olympic Park . Which stations will use these glass studios ? I imagine CBC , NBC, Seven and BBC are certain presence ...

This announcement speaks on Linkedin front studios to Olimpico Park.
They are excellent locations for television stations .
See how the panoramic view is amazing.
Simply set the camera , which may have the tennis center , the lagoon , the mall or Arenas Cariocas .

There will be more two glass studios on Copabacana Beach (one from OBS with 8 slots to networks brodcasting and one built by NBC).

Also, I read this week that will be installed a camera, which will go through a cable 60 meters high, taking panoramic images from Copacabana. This shots will be :wub:
