Australians will enjoy domestic broadcasting of the 2020 Olympics from the Seven Network. Seven, holds the free-to-air, mobile telephony and pay television and online broadcast rights for the Japan Olympics with coverage that has emphasis on the popular mainstream sports such as athletics, swimming, cycling and volleyball. In the past Seven Network has won industry accolades for its coverage including the Olympic Golden Rings for Best Television Program at Athens 2004.
Expect Seven Network to splash out on engaging and interactive broadcasting that will keep Aussies updated and enthused on the go. With timezone similarities with Japan, Seven Network is expecting that the Games will feel like they are taking place just next door with no timing acrobatics to dissuade viewers from watching live and getting involved in the party atmosphere. Their broadcast video on demand channel 7Plus is undergoing expansion with a push to make Tokyo 2020 “biggest digital event in Australia’s history”, reaching tens of millions through its broadcasts and online. You will be able to catch up with Seven Networks coverage on Pacific Magazines 7NEWS.com.au and The West Australian.
