    Where can I find a list detailing live coverage from, say, the BBC for the Games?

    That's a surprisingly difficult question to answer...

    Best I've found are these:

    Thanks. I can't imagine the BBC being as enthusiastic as in 2012 when they covered every second of coverage from all of the sports, but then again a home Olympics is something quite out of the ordinary!

    Yes it was wall to wall for 2012! I had thought they weren't going to have multiple red button streams for 2016 but it seems they are so, yay!

    By the way, it will be Eurosport as lead broadcaster for 2022 onwards, so at least Tokyo 2020 will still be BBC.

    The TV times has a great day-by-day guide to what is on. It also gives times. It is really useful!

    Just put BBC One on. If it's not on there, it'll be on BBC Two. I counted 15 hours straight of Olympics one day, it's ridiculous.

    And BBC Four.
    e.g. men's gymnastics (including GB) on shortly...

    And people wonder why I can't wait for it to be over? They don't need to force in on us.
