The BBC Is Going to Stream 24 Live Olympic Events Simultaneously

By Jon Partridge on at

The BBC seems to be pulling out all the stops when it comes to delivering Olympic content this year, with coverage not just limited to the television. Oh no, we're talking cross-platform, full HD streaming of a massive amount of events to make sure you don't miss out on anything that's happening in the capital during the games.

From the website of BBC Sport, 24 different live events are at your disposal, and I can only hope the BBC can keep up with the workload. From the site, you can pause, rewind and catch up on any of the various events. Bunches of statistics covering every single little detail are also available to look at, if obsessing over the minute numbers is your kind of thing. The website itself isn't the only offering of such variety, as you can also watch live events straight from your phone or tablet via a brand spanking new mobile site or device specific app that can stream HD video over both Wi-Fi and 3G (if it's up to it). Users of Sony goods can get in on the action through Smart TV apps as well as accessing similar offerings via the PlayStation 3.

It's looking to be a busy summer, and unless you disconnect everything with a screen attached to it, I doubt anyone is going to escape the Olympics. Aside from getting out of the country, of course. [TechRadar]
