Korea's Olympic coverage so far has been awful

Postby Avelyn81 » February 15th, 2010 2:11 pm

There are so many events going on in the olympics, but because SBS is the only channel that can show anything olympic related we get a very limited view of the olympic events. I understand SBS focusing on Korean atheletes, I'm sure most countries do this, but 95 percent of the time they only show events with Korean's participating, and if there are no events with Koreans, more often than not they show replays of Korean's winning medals and almost never show other events. During previous Olympics, multiple channels could show the olympics with one channel holding rights to the main events. Many people are very angry about this, including Korean people that remember the good old days when you could see almost any event if it was going on. Today, SBS opted to show Lunar New Year Special programing and didn't even show the Olympics. Thank goodness for the internet and live streaming!
