Foxtel will broadcast 1,600 hours of coverage across four HD and four SD channels – with every gold medal event broadcast live and in full and every event with an Australian competitor broadcast live and in full.

The broadcast coverage is complemented by mobile and Web coverage served by the same back-end systems and database provided by OpenTV.
