Want to watch the Nanjing 2014 Youth Olympic Games? Here’s how!

The second edition of the Summer Youth Olympic Games will take place from 16 to 28 August in Nanjing, China. You don’t have to be in Nanjing to catch all the action, however, as live and on-demand footage of the 3,800 young athletes participating in the Games can be viewed in a variety of ways.

The official Olympic broadcast partners in over 160 countries and territories around the world will provide the most comprehensive Youth Olympic Games coverage ever. For example, in the host country China, CCTV will provide over 600 hours of live, delayed and highlights coverage of the sports action. To see who is broadcasting the Games in your country, visit: www.olympic.tv.

Live and on-demand coverage of the action can also be watched through the IOC’s global digital platforms: www.olympic.tv, www.olympic.org and www.youtube.com/olympics. For anyone in China, tune in to http://sports.cntv.cn/special/nanjing2014/index.shtml, which will be broadcasting the competition extensively.

Not near a TV or computer? Not a problem – the Olympic TV app has you covered. Download the Olympic TV app for your iOS and Android handhelds so you won’t miss a minute of the competition.

As the Youth Olympic Games also offer a comprehensive Culture and Education Programme, you will also be able to check out the “Chat with Champions” sessions featuring a number of Olympic and world champions, as well as some of the interactive workshops designed to help the young athletes become champions on and off the field of play.
