Record of television coverage for this year's Paralympics

The International Paralympic Committee confirmed that the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games will be covered by television, radio and online outlets in a record 154 countries between 7-18 September. It follows on from the London 2012 Paralympic Games where coverage was beamed to 115 countries, and represents a 30 per cent increase in territories showing the Paralympics four years ago.

The IPC is now more confident than ever that it will reach a cumulative global audience of four billion for the first time. It also expects Rio 2016 to be the start of a revolution in the way people watch Para sport, with some broadcasters choosing to create multi-platform options for their viewers online, in apps and on television.
