Olympics coverage

Post by hippyd » Sat Aug 11, 2012 7:16 am

Next olympics I will be getting foxtel. Watching 9's coverage has done my head in. One channel showing the olympics just doesn't cut it anymore...2 channels showing the same thing makes it worse. I have recorded every second of 9's coverage so far and gone through it. They have not shown 1 second of the women's long jump, high jump, or triple jump. They showed the womens pole vault till alana boyd got knocked out then pole vault vanished like it wasn't on anymore. Basically you need an aussie or usain bolt in an event for it to be shown. I thought maybe 9 having the olympics might have done a better job than 7 but it's the same crap. Hopefully by the next olympics foxtel will have more channels for it or even better we might have HD live streaming available online where you can pick and choose the events you want to watch.
Don't get me started on the ads for 9's new shows either.. :x
