I'm not sure if it is the Olympics or SkyTV who responsible for it - but nobody other than sky are allowed to show any video content from the Olympics online - not even for the sake of news reporting.
For all of last week TV3 didn't even bother putting their 6PM news bulletin online. This week they have resumed but edited every single Olympic sporting event out of the online bulletin cutting what is usually a 40 minute plus online bulletin down to approx 23 minutes.
For a long time I have had no respect for Sky and their use of sports to suck in subscribers. If they are responsible for this then they are responsible for killing off sport in a small way and making it ALL about the money.
If it is not Sky who are responsible for this but the Olympic committee then they are guilty of doing the same.
As I am out of the country I have not been able to view one single piece of video coverage of a New Zealander competing at the Olympics. Not even in a news report.
Thank goodness photographs don't suffer the same restriction - but I wont be surprised if they do bring in that kind of restriction in the future.
