Winter Olympic Games 2018 Official Day By Day Schedule

Well, it´s still a bit early, maybe in the next days the tension and interest will slowly raise in Denmark too.

Good luck with your thesis and hopefully you´ll also find in the meantime a moment or two to enjoy a bit the Olympics battles :yes

 

I honestly don't think so. People will without doubt follow the curling teams and biathlon has a growing interest, but I don't think most people will understand that something's happening before the games begin.

I will without doubt take time to follow the games. The good thing is that I'm best during the second half of the day and with the time zones, most of the important things (for me as Danish and Swedish) will end around 2 in the afternoon (a bit of ice hockey later than that, but that's about it). I will surely see something for breakfast and lunch, and if I've been effective the next month (well, a little less), I may also give myself a few full "days" :)

btw how big is the enthusiasm in your countries, are the populations eagerly awaiting the start of the games or the medias and general attentions are still somewhere around zero. For the majority of slovak "sport fans" the Olympics will start the 14th February at 21:10 so until then I expect a certain calm  :d thanks god my sport and Olympic appetite is much bigger so I just can not wait the start of the games

 

can I say: "below 0"? :cry::facepalm::wall:

as usual, here's only about football (it's open market season...our favourite sport...even better than the game played on the pitch itself :yikes::wall:)...

we were also the last Country to finalize an agreement between Discovery Group and our public TV for the FTA part of the Games (which will be just a disaster, as for the schedule released by RAI...by the way, not that the Eurosport coverage will be better...basically you have to subscribe their awful player to watch most of the things going on beside the main "Italian interest stuff" on Eusp1 and the Ice Hockey tournament on Eusp2)...

there's nothing to do...Winter Sports only interest a small part of the Country...and unfortunately it's also the side that doesn't count anything when it comes down to any "political" decision, public TV schedule included (because yes, here in Italy the public TV schedule is a political affair :yikes::(:facepalm::wall:)...

At least I noticed quite some interest in by far my favourite part of Italy (you know, German-speaking Südtirol) :p

yeah...but that's another World if compared to the rest of Italy...

they speak another language, they have a different special statute and some different laws...

things there work a lot better than in the rest of the Country at any level...

I must confess...Bolzano/Bozen is the only other Italian place where I could imagine to live if I had to leave "my beloved Milan"...

I think that the 90% of the people of the mine region (Campania) never watched a winter event.. I live in the south of Italy and here the people doesn't know that this year will have the Winter Olympic...

I guess it's more or less the same for all Regions from Emilia-Romagna going South, unfortunately...:(:facepalm::wall:

About the same in France also. If it was not for the North Korea affair, I think the general medias would still to have to aknowledge that Pyongchang 2018 is a thing.The sports medias have yet to give a fuck too.

 

The difference with Rop 2016 is baffling tbh.

There is fuck-all from the BBC seeing it's partially on it.

Only Eurosport are paying any attention, and they won't shut up about it.

Anyway the long schedule is out


I'm England 'till I die, I'm England 'till I die, I know I am, I'm sure I am, I'm England till I die

And it's Arsenal... Arsenal FC! We're by far the greatest team, the world has ever seen.

do you know if BBC Red Button Channel on satellite would be upgraded to High Definition for the Games?

it would be a shame if in 2018 they still keep an Olympic Channel in the poor SD it normally has...:facepalm:

I wonder if it's going to be possible to watch men's luge, women's 3000m and women's biathlon at about the same time... I guess I can already remove short track and normal hill from my watch list, because apparently all that has to be held at the same time.

 

Absolutely disasterous scheduling, million events in the evening and big holes filled with nothing during the afternoon. :facepalm:
