Olympics in HD on Freesat and Sky HD
The BBC will be broadcasting the 2008 Olympic Games in high definition for the first time.
The HD channel will broadcast 18 hours a day, with an additional six BBCi streams running 24 hours for the 17 day duration of the 302 individual events in the games.
In addition, the BBC iPlayer will also allow online viewing of the games.
BBC Sport's Roger Mosey says "These Olympic Games offer a unique challenge in their location, their politics and their logistics. The BBC will report every aspect of the Games across all its services. We will also offer more choice than ever before to sports fans.
"These will be the first HD Games, and the Games where people have the largest range of digital options across all our platforms. They will be able to experience every moment with the BBC."
