Sky Goes for Rio Gold

Sky will dedicate 10 pop-up channels to its “unprecedented” coverage of the Rio Olympics but only four will be in HD.

However, there will also be HD coverage on Sky Sport 3 and 4 as well as on Prime (from 11pm-3pm daily plus highlights packages and streaming on www.primetv.co.nz).

Closed captions for deaf and hard of hearing viewers will be available on much of Prime’s coverage, including the opening and closing ceremonies.

Here’s the list of Rio channels, which will be grouped together:
