Widespread TV coverage of Paralympic Games (finally)

The National television broadcaster France Télévisions announced that will offer over 100 hours of live broadcasting of the Paralympic Games in Rio 2016, from 7-18 September. The broadcast will also include the Opening and Closing Ceremonies, and live shows held 8 September, on France 4 and France 2 channels.

For the first time ever, the public broadcaster will have a set at the Paralympic Games and that follows criticism of the poor coverage from Paralympics of London 2012. The only channel which showed daily live action was the little known regional station TV8 Mont Blanc, a station based in the Alps and available to only 70 per cent of the French population.
