Freesat to show Winter Olympics in HD

Bookmark and Share

Just as the big freeze begins to thaw, in a few weeks time there will be a mass of winter sports exploding onto the TV screens as the BBC begins coverage of the 2010 Winter Olympics from Vancouver.

As the BBC will also be broadcasting the games in high definition, those households with a Freesat system will be able to watch the games in brilliant HD completely free of charge.

Freesat will be using the Winter Games to publicise how clear HD television can be and probably to remind potential new customers that there some other special sporting events coming up in the summer.

These include the football World Cup, rugby Six Nations and Wimbledon on BBC HD, while the FA Cup and Champions League can be seen on ITV1 HD.
