Give us more live Olympics coverage
Kindly allow me space in your paper to express my disappointment at
TV6 for yesterday's Olympic coverage.
I got up early in the morning to watch the Olympic Games and I took in some of the action, which included an entertaining basketball game between the Chinese and Czech women's teams. And after taking in some other sports, I was expecting some new events to be covered.
Lo and behold, around 10 a.m., the same basketball game which I had seen earlier was rebroadcast, even though when I checked the Internet, there were other sports which were being covered live through text commentary though and not video feed.
It was just out of curiosity that I decided to then switch the channel to MSNBC that I got coverage of a live women's football match between world champions Japan and Sweden.
So my question is why weren't these sports broadcast live, instead of bombarding us with a rebroadcast?
While I appreciate the fact that TV6 is broadcasting the Olympic Games, I definitely think they need to improve their standards, otherwise, I think I'll be switching to MSNBC if I want to see any live coverage.
I sincerely hope their standards improve by the time track and field action starts next weekend. Otherwise, they can stop calling themselves the "Official Olympic Station".
