US network NBC shuns YouTube for Sochi Olympics

Jun 13 2013, 3:36am CDT | by

Washington, June 13 (IANS/RIA Novosti) United States television network NBC will not team up with YouTube to provide digital footage of next year's Winter Olympics in Russia's Black Sea town of Sochi as it did during the 2012 Summer Games in London.

Washington, June 13 (IANS/RIA Novosti) United States television network NBC will not team up with YouTube to provide digital footage of next year's Winter Olympics in Russia's Black Sea town of Sochi as it did during the 2012 Summer Games in London.

NBC, which holds the US media rights for the Sochi Olympics next February, partnered with YouTube last year to provide online video footage of last year's London Olympics.

But the network has opted not to team up with the popular video site for Sochi and instead is planning its own content management system for Games, though it is unclear whether this will include a video player or whether the network will team up with another video partner, the US trade publication cited NBC sources as saying Wednesday.

NBC streamed 3,500 hours of live coverage of the London Games via the video player that YouTube provided for the network. Internet viewers streamed more than 20.4 million hours of video of the London Olympics, more than double that of the 2008 Beijing Olympics, and 64.4 million hours of live video streams, up more than 350 percent compared to Beijing.

This is going to be hilarious...

Sep 15 2014 1:58pm CDT | Source: Bike Forums

So I get hooked into riding an event called "Corporate Challenge". It's a pseudo Olympics for companies. All kinds of events from track, to corn hole, to cycling, tug of war, you get it. Something for everyone. So the cycling event is a six mile time trial. It's on public streets and they are not closed off (but there will be police to attempt to exert some control). Two major intersection ...

Carl Hester: Hot competition, but no haute cuisine [H&H VIP]

Sep 14 2014 2:57am CDT | Source: horse and hound

Although there was great sport at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games (WEG) in Normandy, the facilities for riders and the media were dire. The food was rubbish and took ages; we gave up after a couple of days and ventured out with the masses instead. The organisers refused to give accreditation to one journalist friend of mine — who had gone through the proper channels — as they had lost her emails. She ended up having to re ...
