Cox grouping Olympic channels together
Cox Communications is making it easy for its Oklahoma digital subscribers to watch their favorite Olympic events and get extra information and highlights from the Beijing Games, which begin next week. Cox has grouped NBC Universal's channels with Olympic programming, with the exception of Telemundo (Cox channel 5), on its 800 tier. The channels will combine to produce a record 3,600 hours of coverage.
HD channels also have been designated for basketball and soccer, and these two will be available to HD and standard digital subscribers, said Cox product management director Bruce Berkinshaw. Soccer coverage begins before the opening ceremonies, including the U.S. team playing Norway at 5:30 a.m. Wednesday.
Extensive Olympic on-demand programming can be accessed on channel 1 and also will be available on channel 807 beginning Monday.
On-demand categories include Classic Moments, including Top 5 Upsets, Top 5 Heartbreaks and Top 5 Teams, a Team USA Preview and Beijing information. A daily highlights recap and additional programming from NBC will be added during the games, Berkinshaw said.
Cox also is providing a daily event schedule on its Web sites, coxoklahoma.com and cox.net, along with links to NBC's online coverage, which will include 2,200 hours of streaming video.
