Canada's CTV Says CBC Infringed On Olympic Rights During Interview From Athlete's Village

ONLY GAME IN TOWN: In London, Giles Smith writes for British television networks, there is "only one view in town at the moment, and competition for that view seems to have been keen." Most news operations "appear to have leased at least 30 feet of Stratford-facing window frontage" for the duration of the Olympics. Even Sky Sports News, "which has no official role to play as a broadcaster of the Games, has secured a glazed cubby hole." Early impressions "are that BBC Sport is hogging the square-on view, from an apartment with a rosewood floor" (LONDON TIMES, 7/27). Meanwhile, the GUARDIAN's John Plunkett notes Great Britain's women's soccer team's 1-0 win over New Zealand "in the first event of the 2012 Games peaked with 2.5 million viewers on BBC1 on Wednesday afternoon." The BBC's coverage between 3:30pm and 6:00pm local time "averaged 1.6 million viewers, a 17.5% share of all viewing in the timeslot" (GUARDIAN, 7/27).
