US finally get TV coverage of the Paralympics - Visa and Outdoor Life Network come to the rescue

TV viewers in the USA have been unable to follow the Athens Paralympics on any of the hundreds of US tv channels. Incredible though that may seem, given the support and interest shown in the US for all kinds of sports.

The only drawback is viewers will have to wait until November. Not quite the instant, fast-and-furious world normally associated with US broadcasting.

Whatever the reasons for no live broadcasts, the move by Outdoor Life Network is very welcome.

Outdoor Life Network is known in the US for showing best-in-class events like the 'Tour de France' and 'Professional Bull Riding'.

Viewers in the UK and much of Europe get daily and often Live Broadcasts of the Athens Paralympics.
