The BBC says it will broadcast more than 300 hours of live coverage from the upcoming Winter Olympics in China next month across BBC One and BBC Two, with even more coverage available on a second live digital stream on BBC iPlayer, Red Button and the BBC Sport website.
Streaming service Eurosport, now part of Discovery, plans to show all events live and also have them stacked up on demand via its Eurosport Player app.
The BBC’s live coverage will be led by Hazel Irvine, Jeanette Kwakye, Ayo Akinwolere and JJ Chalmers from Friday 4 February. Clare Balding will bring viewers a daily highlights show on BBC Two and Aimee Fuller (below), a competitor in the 2018 Games, will present BBC Three ‘Extra’, a daily one hour show with extended highlights.
They will be accompanied by an expert line up of former Olympians and international Winter sports athletes to offer insight and analysis of all the daily events over the 16 day duration of the Winter Games.
There will be daily extensive coverage on BBC Radio 5 Live with Andy Stevenson, Gigi Salmon and Rob Hatch.
BBC Radio 5 Live Breakfast with Rachel Burden and Rick Edwards will also bring all of the overnight news from Beijing with special guests from Team GB joining them throughout the show.
BBC Sounds and BBC Radio 5 Live will host Aimee Fuller’s Olympic Mile Podcast where she will talk to some of the biggest names taking part in the Winter Games and some of the best UK medal prospects, delving into their training plans, diet, mindset and their Olympic goals.
The 24th Winter Olympics are due to take place from 4 to 20 February 2022 with the Winter Paralympics running afterwards from 4 to 13 March, 2022.
