That means that, from July 27 to August 12, millions of people in countries like India, Singapore, Nigeria and Kenya will be able to livestream the next Summer Olympic Games free of charge, in addition to watching ‘highlight clips’.
Google says the International Olympic Committee’s (IOC) YouTube channel will offer fans over 2,200 hours of HD sporting event coverage from the Games, including all the medal finals:
The IOC channel will have 10 HD live-feeds from the Games, running from 9am to 11pm London time, plus a 24-hour broadcast of the Olympic News Channel. There will also be highlight reels and full videos of events after they’ve finished — all organized by the day, medal event, or the sport.
It’s nice to see that Google and the IOC are making an effort to enable fans worldwide to watch coverage from the Olympics if they’re not able to make the trip to London themselves.“
