      Re: Watch every second of the BBC's 2012 Olympics coverage on Sky

      This is great news. I'm pleased they are keeping it free as it's BBC. I've finally axed my sky subs (first got sky in 1988 i think) after many years as it was just too much to pay . Sports had been my main thing but it's annoying knowing a big chunk of my fee props up football and i don't even like it. If they ever gave the chance to just buy certain sports i'd go back to it (or even an ability to buy one channel that carried specific sports you like).

      I'll definitely keep my box hooked up then so that this sort of content is still available.

      In case you wanted to know, the BBC Olympic channels now appear on your planner.

      They are available under the sport genre on the planner and start from 450. On my planner, I have the HD subscription so they may be the other way around if you don't have this:

      450-473 = BBC Olym 1-24 HD
      474-497 = BBC Olympic 1-24 (SD)

      Currently there are just the test transmissions and it looks like they are going to use the Red Button to navigate between the different stations to select the different events. Looking at the planner, the opening ceremony is the first thing to be shown, with events kicking off on Saturday morning.

      There are some events happening today. BBC 1 has coverage this afternoon from 3.30pm, with more tomorrow evening. The BBC 3 & HD channels will be showing some this evening from 7pm, with more coverage tomorrow from 2.30pm.

      And on the Sky+ app on mobile devices the BBC Olympics channels appear under the "All Channels" on the opening page when it is loaded up which is very helpful.
