Live streams of the games can be broadcasted to only users in the UK.
This year’s Olympic fans can stream the games live via apps released by BBC, together with text commentary and with guides to various sporting events. Because BBC is the only one who has the rights to broadcast the games in the UK, the games can be broadcasted to only users in the UK. However there is an international edition of the app as well that will have some of the treats, reports Slashgear.
The app, by determining a users location, will offer localized updates. It will quickly allow keeping tabs on the events that one is really interested in. If a user wishes to sort countries relevant to the updates & headlines, it is possible too. Besides offering schedules for the various events, the app will also generate statistics and information of the various athletes in the games and the text commentaries will aid a user in case he/she does not have enough bandwidth for the video. The app is now available in both Google’s Play & Apple’s App Store.
