Globo's Sportv To Show 35 Hours From Sochi Paralympics In Brazil
A unique agreement between the Int'l Paralympic Committee, the Brazilian Paralympic Committee and broadcaster Globo will see 35 hours of the 2014 Paralympic Winter Games broadcast in Brazil beginning Friday. The IPC has awarded the broadcast rights in Brazil for Sochi 2014 to the Brazilian Paralympic Committee, which, in turn, sub-licensed the rights to Globo. Globo, which showed a record 95 hours of the 2012 London Olympics, will show what equates to four hours per day of live and recorded coverage from Sochi broadcast on cable channel Sportv. Brazil is sending two athletes to Sochi in what is the country's first appearance at a Winter Paralympics (IPC).
