The television coverage of the Paralympic Games by the European journalists

The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) has struck an agreement with the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) that covers media rights on all platforms for the PyeongChang 2018 and Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games. The new agreement covers all EBU territories, except the United Kingdom and Russia, and the upcoming coverage is expected to build on the success of the Sochi 2014 and Rio 2016 Paralympic Games that reached record numbers of viewers around the world.

Last September 54 EBU members, representing more than half of the broadcasters on-site, covered Latin America’s first Paralympic Games. This helped the overall cumulative global audience of the Paralympic Games grow from 3.8 billion for London 2012 to 4.1 billion for Rio 2016.
