Winter Youth Olympics on TV

Recommended Posts

Can anyone comment on whether the Youth Olympics will be televised in their country - what channels, times, etc.? Will it be available on the Internet or elsewhere?

Who will be watching the Opening Ceremonies - or any of the Games?

As far as I know, it won't be broadcasted here in Germany. But even in Austria you won't be able to see it live on TV. But I've heard on ORFeins and ORF SPORT + there will be a few highlight broadcasts.

Does anyone know if it's being covered in the United States? I've looked on Universal Sports' website.. they showed the highlights feed each day in 2010, but I don't see anything this time around.

For France, TV8 Mont-Blanc is the rights holder.

They will do some live covering (without any confirmation yet on exactly which events) and they will have 2 resume everyday. A daily news report at 19:30 and the official 52 minutes IOC magazine at 21:15 (recast the next day at 13:00 & 16:00).

TV8 is a free aired channel in the French Alps, but nowdays is also available on internet (on their own website and through all internet providers), cable TV & satelites TV.

I'm still looking for Switzerland....

But at least live broadcast will be available on-line on IOC & YOG websites !

As far as I know, no. If it wasn't for this website the whole thing would've by-passed me. The Summer version had a daily round-up on the BBC website if I remember correctly, and some coverage on CBBC, but this one I've heard nothing of.

That's correct. I've looked it up and ORF Sport+ will air the opening ceremony live and then highlights daily.

In Australia there will be a 1 hour highlights package on the Channel 9 free to air channel "GO" at 4.30pm. I believe that this program is then repeated the following day at 7.30am.

So it's nice to see there will be some coverage, even if it's just 1 hour a day.

Cheers

The BBC have highlights on the red button - first was tonight at 7pm which acted as a preview, but with no voiceover so lots of random scene shots then cutting to a random interview. Nothing from the opening ceremony either.

Highlights is sufficient but I think putting the ceremonies on live - without commentary would actually be preferable - isn't too big an ask.

I'm watching the official WYOG daily highlights show live online on TV8 Montblanc right now as I write this.

There is a You Tube channel but no full sports events or highlights, let alone the welcoming ceremony.

Great that TV8 Mt Blanc website is available outside France :P

There is a daily general highlights show on TV8 Mont-Blanc that uses male and female French commentators obscuring the default English used on the program.
