i'm so annoyed they aren't broadcasting the climbing . Totally useless IOC and BBC. I hear streams in canada and australia are available if you have vpn, but nothing in the uk!?! just ******** in my opinion!

Coverage has been terrible this year. They used to let you flick through about 8 different sports all happening simultaneously. Now the BBC seems to only have max 2 streams at one time.

Just very poor unfortunately, I used to like flicking through, then again im only watching the very start & end of the day this year with the Japenese time difference.

This would be because Discovery bought up all the rights - the BBC couldn't compete with the ££. They have to legally show so much through a free channel so BBC have been used for reach, but yeah the rest is behind a paywall.

Yep.

It may well be included as part of a Sky subscription, but we only use Freeview so wouldn't know. The online subscription for Discovery+ is £6.99/month.

Yea looks like eurosport are airing the discovery stuff in the UK

It’s not surprising, it’s the way the word works. Just wish i had realised earlier.
