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
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.
