Durban Sandshark Posted January 10, 2014 Report Share Posted January 10, 2014 Oh great. NBC never learns. I get that it meant a bit to throw a bone to the non-Olympic fans who want to watch NBC entertainment But on a Friday? Of course with NBC Sports Network now on the scene, NBC doesn't need to do as much heavy lifting like in the recent past for both Olympics, so the amount of non-primetime repeat hours going down is expected. But it will have its distinct edited presentations like with figure skating compared to its cable channels. Sochi Main IBC Media Center opened its doors earlier this week to the first wave of media residents from over 70 nations http://www.sochi2014.com/en/news-the-main-media-center-in-sochi-opens-its-doors-to-the-first-representatives-of-the-media Like to know who will call the Olympic hockey for Ten for Australians. Likely will be a feed taken from the BBC, CBC, or NBC. TVP will start its TV coverage by having the Opening Ceremony simulcasted live on TVP1 on 16.30-20. But TVP Sport, SPORT.TVP.PL and TVP Strem will all share the start coverage at 16 and will go to 20.20. Also, we have the first two days of the Sochi 2014 coverage on essentially all members of the TVP family (streaming included). The BBC only comes in for TVP with Olympic Evening. Once TVP has the full schedule, I'll post it here. http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=pl&u=http://www.mmwroclaw.pl/469487/2014/1/7/soczi--transmisja-tv-online-gdzie-obejrzec-zimowe-igrzyska-olimpijskie%3Fcategory%3Dsport&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dzimowe%2Bigrzyska%2Bolimpijskie%2B2014%2Bw%2Btvp%26biw%3D1280%26bih%3D907 Sochi 2014 coverage very much is exactly the same through the Baltic nations on Viasat and its channels with the same structure. For Lithuanians who like to see their best medal hopes in figure skating pair Isabella Tobias and David Stagniunas, they can also see them on MTG's TV3 and TV6 with online coverage on TV3's Play Portal. http://translate.googleusercontent.com/translate_c?depth=1&hl=en&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dhttp://www.15min.lt/naujiena/sportas/ziemos-sportas/socio-ziemos-olimpinems-zaidynems-specialus-visa-para-rodomas-olimpiniu-naujienu-kanalas-295-396083%253Fcf%253Ddf%26biw%3D1280%26bih%3D907&rurl=translate.google.com&sl=lt&u=http://www.15min.lt/naujiena/sportas/ziemos-sportas/socio-ziemos-olimpinems-zaidynems-specialus-visa-para-rodomas-olimpiniu-naujienu-kanalas-295-396083&usg=ALkJrhhZBVpuv13TeIURzdEVlfWD7FpSLg Haven't discussed about Panorama, the official Russian host broadcaster, in a while. But yesterday it announced it's the official national broadcaster for the Sochi Olympics production-wise. From February 6-23, Panorama will provide the national TV signals to the Russian Olympic broadcasters Russia 1 and 2, Channel One, and NTV Plus with the focus and profiles on and reactions from, of course, the Russian athletes, coaches, trainers, fans, and VIPs that will replace up to 30% of the international footage from the unbiased international OBS, which will act once again as the basis of the Olympic coverage. Panorama is going all out with the latest technology at Sochi, including CGI and its state-of-the-art fleet, in the Russian coverage. Even tapping into the old Soviet Olympic era. http://www.panoramahd.ru/en/news/1738 TVR will show over 500 hours of the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics live with all 15 events through TVR1, TVR2, TVR3, TVR HD, and online at TVR+ http://www.tvr.ro/jocurile-olimpice-de-iarna-de-la-soci_6495.html#view Discussions were afoot to submit 100 hours of SKY Italia's Sochi 2014 coverage to Italia 1 back in November. However, that would mean SKY have to give up even ending its coverage plans to Cielo, which it designated as the Team Italia Azzurri Olympic Channel. Italia 1, part of Silvio Berlusconi's media empire, was keen on obtaining some of those events for its TV since it failed to reach an agreement how state-run RAI would get the Olympics TV rights, usually through RAI 2, as is mandatory to give them to terrestrial broadcasters. Now RAI is restricted to just highlights; we've seen this trend coming since SKY took over the rights. But anyway, you get a bit of a general look of what SKY will do with the full Sochi coverage, including its speciality channel Cielo (Sky in Italian) and six designated Olympic channels. http://translate.googleusercontent.com/translate_c?depth=1&hl=en&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dhttp://www.tvblog.it/post/482329/sochi-2014-olimpiadi-in-chiaro-su-cielo-dal-7-al-23-febbraio-alla-rai-solo-le-paralimpiadi%26biw%3D1280%26bih%3D907%26tbm%3Dnws&rurl=translate.google.com&sl=it&u=http://www.tvblog.it/post/482329/sochi-2014-olimpiadi-in-chiaro-su-cielo-dal-7-al-23-febbraio-alla-rai-solo-le-paralimpiadi&usg=ALkJrhheCZH53yh4MJww_f46vvGVqOPWyg http://translate.googleusercontent.com/translate_c?depth=1&hl=en&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dhttp://www.tvblog.it/post/482329/sochi-2014-olimpiadi-in-chiaro-su-cielo-dal-7-al-23-febbraio-alla-rai-solo-le-paralimpiadi%26biw%3D1280%26bih%3D907%26tbm%3Dnws&rurl=translate.google.com&sl=it&u=http://www.tvblog.it/post/431805/sochi-2014-sky-cede-le-olimpiadi-a-italia-1&usg=ALkJrhhb74njm3L1WX5a2TDhsAeQUeQ8lQ Cielo just released its new Sochi 2014 Olympic promo for its 100-hour coverage starting February 7 Claro Sports, the new sports TV channel in Latin America created by America Movil that replaced MVS Communications-owned Viva Sports, is your destination for the Sochi 2014 coverage across Latin America (excluding Brazil) and follow your Latin American Winter Olympians, which will likely get a greater presence and even may win its first medal for that region in it. Unlike a lot of Olympic TV broadcasters worldwide, its coverage will start on February 6. Promos like this one were made by production company Pinhole, specifically produced by Gustavo Ramírez and directed by Santiago Arau http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K9LaqgsdNxU Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
