The International Olympic Committee ensures that these games are followed by and smartphones that on TV. “The London 2012 Games will be the first in which the digital broadcast outstrip traditional TV,” said Timo Lumme, head of the television marketing of the event and added: “Social networks like Twitter make more people interested in the Games and connect to television or other means.”

At the end of the sporting event will have reached 100,000 hours of in all possible channels in Beijing four years ago the figure was 61.000 hours.

The IOC is testing new transmission options as the High Definition (already used 4 years ago and now) and 3D images.

It is not surprising to learn that people prefer to follow the events online. In the case of our continent have the disadvantage of times, those who have to work can not be watching at 10:00 am at our offices if there is a TV near, however, we can access the Internet at any times.

Another important point is that the internet gives you the opportunity to choose the event you want to see, which forces you to watch TV. As if this were not enough on the internet we have the opportunity to relive the event you want when we want and not have to wait for the summary of the night.

Additionally, what I consider a personal one big advantage is that there are sites which have no HD broadcast commentators. Do you where to have been following the Olympics?
