Looks like I'm lucky to be British in this regard. BBC showed absolutely everything, with few exceptions, (non ticketed events, like Archery and Shooting preliminary rounds)

As now we come across the world
To share these Games of old
Let all the flags of every land
In brotherhood unfold

Last Olympics I was sitting in the living room with this:

 

- My parent's computer (they were away)

- The TV

- My laptop

- An extra screen on my laptop

- My mobile phone

 

This year I can add another laptop and a tablet to that :d 

 

Just put everything in the right position and there's a good chance of catching most of the action :p

we were very lucky, but with the new budget cuts and the possible end of the red button I fear we may not be so lucky again. For Rio I haven't heard anything yet about whether the coverage will be the same as London, personally with the loss of BBC3 I expect they will have to introduce a few BBC Olympics channels. Have you heard any broadcasting arrangements for Rio 2016?

I found the answer, and it's good news

Quote

Alongside its coverage on TV and radio and an expanded digital offering through its interactive red button service, each individual sport will be streamed online.

But there will be no repeat of the experiment four years ago when the BBC responded to a first home Olympics for more than 60 years with up to 24 channels of sport in cable and satellite homes.

So although there is no BBC Olympics channel, everything is online.

That is good news. Very good news.

From PyeongChang onwards however, everything will still be there, but on Discovery/Eurosport. Which is good enough, I guess.

Also, nice profile pic. xD
