Sportfive announced Thursday that media rights in Denmark for the 2014 Sochi Games and the 2016 Rio Games have been awarded to DR and TV2 Denmark A/S (TV2).

As in previous years, they have committed to providing extensive coverage of both Games on free-to-air TV and pay-TV channels. For Sochi 2014 and Rio 2016, this will be supplemented by additional coverage on the Internet and on mobile devices. DR Head of Sport Tine Bendix said: "In light of the massive interest for London 2012 from Danish viewers it is important that this great celebration of sport is made available to all Danes" (Sportfive).
