    Default Beijing Olympics 2008 -- Prepare to be Geo-Blocked

    4 August 2008

    http://www.olympic.org/uk/news/media...p?release=2678

    The IOC (International Olympic Committee) will launch an online Channel to broadcast the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games in seventy-seven territories across Africa, Asia and the Middle East, including India, Republic of Korea, Nigeria and Indonesia, it was announced today.

    From 6 August 2008, the IOC will broadcast a selection of Beijing 2008 Olympic Games clips as Video On Demand (VOD). The IOC’s Channel will be available on YouTubeTM, geo-blocked within each territory, at:





    www.youtube.com/beijing2008






    The IOC’s Channel will be accessible in territories where digital VOD rights have not been sold or have been acquired on a non-exclusive basis.

    Olympic Broadcasting Services (OBS), a wholly owned subsidiary of the IOC, will produce regularly updated Olympic content. The package will include highlights, news and daily clips of the competitions, available throughout the 17-day period of the Games.

    After online broadcast coverage was made available in a handful of territories for Athens 2004, and in 23 territories for Turin, Beijing 2008 marks the first time that digital media coverage will be freely available across the world provided by the rights-holding broadcasters and/or directly via the IOC’s Channel.

    IOC Director of Television and Marketing Services, Timo Lumme said: “The IOC’s priority is to ensure that as many people as possible get to experience the magic of the Olympic Games and the inspirational sporting achievements of the Olympic athletes. For the first time in Olympic history we will have complete global online coverage, and the IOC will have its own broadcast Channel and content production facilities. The IOC’s Channel will make fantastic Olympic footage available where young generations of sports fans are already going for online entertainment, and will complement the footage offered in these territories by our broadcast partners across all media platforms.”

    By offering an abundance of freely available content across media platforms around the world, including over the internet, the IOC believes it is limiting the risk of piracy infringements.

    BIG BROTHER ... HAS ARRIVED ! !

    And all I wanted to do is to watch the Opening Ceremonies online, ---LIVE--- when they're happening, on Friday, regardless on the country or language that's delivering it ! ( The evening coverage in the US will be from something that occured around 12 hours earlier.....)

    If this isn't 666, I don't know what is ? ? ?

    Hey Rover, you probably didnt see this but there was a thread started. Maybe the Mods can merge them.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.
