XXIII Olympic Winter Games Guide

The XXIII Olympic Winter Games will get underway from PyeongChang, South Korea later this week.

The PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games will be the most watchable Olympic event for Australian viewers since Beijing 2008.

South Korea is just two hours behind Sydney and Melbourne, placing some of the freshest events of the Olympic Winter Games in golden hours for Australians.

Australia’s strongest ever Olympic Winter Team has assembled, headlined by Olympic Champion, Lydia Lassila (Aerial Skiing), World Champions Scotty James (Snowboard Halfpipe) and Britt Cox (Mogul Skiing), and Olympic silver medallist, David Morris (Aerial Skiing), creating a perfect blizzard during the Australian Summer.

Coming to the screens of Seven live and free from 9 – 25th February, 2018, Australians can watch the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games on Channel 7, and 7mate- as well as online and on the go with the most innovative Olympic Winter Games coverage ever seen in Australia.

As Australia’s Olympic Network, Seven will deliver approximately 245 hours of broadcast television coverage across the 16 days of competition. Daily coverage begins at 10am Queensland time on weekdays and 9am Queensland time on weekends, until approximately 12.30am the next day

Sports nuts will be able to watch every memorable moment live on the OlympicsOn7 app with eight live streams, including the Channel 7 and 7mate coverage.

Whether you’re a fan of snowboard cross or figure skating, the OlympicsOn7 app gives you access to*:

·         Live stream all of Seven’s coverage of PyeongChang from Channel 7 and 7mate

·         Watch every incredible moment – that’s up to eight channels in one go.

·         Jaw dropping highlights and athlete interviews.

·         Interactive results, medal tables and event schedules

·         Access across iOS, Android, Web, tvOS and Fetch TV

Fans can also upgrade to the OlympicsOn7 Premium package for a one-off fee of $14.99* giving access to:

·         Seven’s broadcast coverage in stunning HD.

·         Less commercial content, meaning you get to the action faster

·         Access premium content across eight connected devices – including six concurrently – meaning the whole family can enjoy the action.

So whether it’s on free-to-air TV, the OlympicsOn7 app, the Seven website or the @7Olympics social accounts, Seven will deliver the most comprehensive, compelling and engaging coverage of the Winter Olympics ever seen.

All of this coverage is backed by an elite commentary team for the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics. Seven’s team of experts and commentators will be calling the action – and helping to explain the difference between an inverted hand plant and a quadruple lutz.

Hamish McLachlan, Edwina Bartholomew, Mel McLaughlin and Jason Richardson will anchor the coverage from PyeongChang.

Calling the action will be Basil Zempilas, famous for his call of Steven Bradbury’s gold medal success, along with lively commentator Dave Culbert and Mark Readings.

 

Five-time world title holder aerial skier Jacqui Cooper headlines a crack team of expert commentators which also includes Olympians Steph Prem, Katya Crema, former Australian cricketer and freestyle skier Dirk Nannes, Mitch Tomlinson and Luke Kneller.

Mark Beretta, Tom Williams, Rachael Finch and Emma Davenport will bring viewers the colour and characters throughout the two weeks in PyeongChang.

For a fun look at the PyeongChang 2018, Mick Molloy, Sam Pang and Andy Maher return to the Front Bar. Joined by a host of former Olympic champions from years past, the team take a nostalgic and humorous look at the Winter Olympics.
