BBC to Stream Every Minute of Olympic Games

The Summer Olympic Games draw near, and this year fans won’t have to miss a second of the action. BBC announced that it will live stream every minute of the Olympic Games, for a total of 2,500 hours of footage.

“We’re going to make sure they (fans) get the best possible experience they can,” said BBC’s Phil Fearnley. “It’s the first time our audience gets total control.”

Olympic enthusiasts can choose from one of 24 high-definition streams during the big event, and they’ll be able to access content from a variety of devices, including computers, iPhones, iPads, Android devices, and platforms offering Internet-connected TV.

Men and women who can’t watch the Olympic Games 24/7 thanks to things like work, family, and friends can stay updated via Twitter feeds. Fans can also visit BBC’s Olympic site and rewind the action.

America’s NBC will also offer Olympic streaming, but the coverage will only be available on the network’s site and they will only offer 300 hours of footage.

London will host the 2012 Olympic Games from July 27 to August 12. How much of the Games do you plan to watch?
