Flow providing front-row seats for Olympic fans
Olympic fans are about to have a front row seat in Rio thanks to leading telecoms provider Flow.
Flow, the region’s exclusive broadcast partner of the 2016 Olympic Games, will beam more than 2,000 hours of live, uninterrupted coverage to over fifteen markets throughout the Caribbean including Barbados.
“As the excitement steadily builds, Flow is especially pleased to be the exclusive broadcast partner of the Olympic Games for the Pan-Caribbean region,” said Niall Sheehy, Managing Director, Flow Barbados.
“We are also very proud to have the opportunity to deliver an enhanced and enriched Olympic experience to sports fans in the Caribbean. Working in conjunction with Caribbean Association of National Olympic Committees (CANOC), we have invested significantly to ensure that we transform how the region consumes these Olympic Games.”
These services will be delivered via the Flow Rio 2016 Extra application that is available for free download from the iOS App Store and Google Play Store.
“Flow has the exclusive rights to the Games, however, we also recognise that these Games are important to the people of the Caribbean and that the entire region should be able to share in the Olympic experience, so in keeping with the spirit of the Games, we have taken the decision to extend access of our broadcast rights to facilitate other providers to air the event,” added Sheehy.
“Flow customers will, however, have the most Olympic Games programming available in the Caribbean via three special Flow Olympic channels that will be added especially for the Games. As a result, our customers will have access to at least 12 hours of live action per day on each channel, and of course, all of our coverage will be in high-definition.”
