YouTube To Broadcast Beijing Olympics

Satheesh C B | Thursday, August 07, 2008 | 1 comments


The International Olympic Committee has launched a YouTube channel to broadcast clips from the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games that will be accessible in most countries, but not in the United States.

The IOC announced Monday that a selection of clips will air in 77 countries -- in Africa, Asia, and the Middle East -- beginning Wednesday. Viewers can watch the clips on demand where digital video-on-demand rights have not been sold or acquired for exclusive airing. General Electric's NBC conglomerate has secured the broadcast rights for the Olympics in the United States.

The IOC said that its broadcasting services would regularly provide updated content, including highlights, news, and daily clips during the 17 days the games are held. The content will be geo-blocked in each territory.
