Complementing the extensive global television coverage of the Games the International Olympic Committee’s YouTube channel will produce 2,200 hours of HD coverage for fans across 64 territories and in countries including Singapore, India, Malaysia, Nigeria, Uganda, and Kenya.

With 10 HD feeds running for 14 hours per day during the Games and a 24-hour broadcast of Olympics news on offer, the iconic image of fans gathered around an old television set to share in a major sporting event will receive a truly 21st Century revamp.

At the conclusion of the Games highlight reels and full videos of events will be available after they have finished, so that fans can re-live the drama, excitement and unifying experience as often as they want.
