North Koreans To Get Extensive Sochi Winter Olympics Television Coverage

North Koreans will receive substantial TV coverage of the upcoming Sochi Winter Olympics in Russia "even though none of its athletes have qualified for the event," according to YONHAP. North Korea "is among the 15 countries to get help from the Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union," a non-profit organization for promoting cooperation and friendship among broadcasting firms in the region, to broadcast Olympic events under deals with the union. The union said that under the deal, coverage of major Olympic events by seven TV channels "will be relayed to Pyongyang starting with the opening ceremony scheduled for early Saturday (Korean time)" (YONHAP, 2/6).
