With so many events taking place at this year’s Olympic Games, the difficult then is deciding just what you want to watch and sometimes, your interests don’t necessarily align with the mainstream. If that’s the case, don’t fret. You can still watch an event that is not being shown via a livestream. Seven will deliver its exclusive experience across 43 channels and two simulcasts, including 36 channels curated by Seven, six pre-created channels direct from Tokyo and one existing Olympic channel. Together this provides the most live streams ever hosted by an Australian broadcaster.
Extending across Seven’s entire digital ecosystem including 7plus, 7NEWS. com.au and The West Australian, over one billion minutes will be streamed across the 17-day period, with four modes of viewing: live, full replay, Olympic minis (compressed replays) and short form highlights. The broadcast will feature a consistent experience across 20 different platforms allowing Australians to stream across any device of their choosing, and live EPG integration to ensure they never miss a moment.
Should the work commute get in the way of your Olympic viewing, there’s still the radio. Southern Cross Austereo are expected to again have the rights to Olympic coverage, however it’s unsure just how they will cover the events. ABC will also have their own team of reporters covering the Olympics and provide updates on ABC local radio, Grandstand digital, online and on the ABC Grandstand app.
If you’re unsure of when an event is on or simply require the list of every single event on at Tokyo and the AEST time and date that it’ll occur, the good folks at The Roar have established a coverage guide for Australians which you can read over at their Olympics Event Guide.
