      Olympics & iPlayer

      Given that the BBC has done such an amazing job of all the extra Olympics channels you'd think Sky could have got the BBC iPlayer working on Anytime.!
      Virgin Media have!

      Sadly the timing isn't great and it isn't going to be available.

      I am guessing, but it may not be available until after the Paralympics.

      However, if you have a tablet or smart phone, there are a collection of official apps, including a special app to allow you to see any of the 24 BBC Olympic channels.

      The BBC really had very little to so except superimpose their logo. The International Olympic Committee's own outfit (OBS) are the Host Broadcasters and it is they who supply the streams. And a right pig's ear they made of today's road race! Sky have provided the transponder space reportedly free of charge.

      It's worse than that.

      All weekend i've been going on the bbc news channel, hoping to get my weekly fix of the 'click' programme & every time, despite 'click' being in the epg, it's always showing exactly what's on bbc1 at the time.
      It's the same on freeview & they don't even have the extra 10 trillion (sorry, 24) olympic feeds that sky customers have.

      Sort it out bbc.

      Sadly I've found this out too.

      Looking at Click on the BBC iPlayer it appears to have been postponed. All the items due for airing this weekend have been marked 'Coming Soon'.

      BBC iPlayer - Search :click

      Also to rub a little salt in, for anyone else who can't wait to see all the 24 Olympic channels, TVCatchup has them all too.
