Seven: Australia’s Home of the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022

By 7SPORT, Olympics, SEVEN, SPORT

10 Days to Go!

In 2000, the Seven Network accepted the honour of welcoming the world to Australia as the television network of the Olympic Games. Beijing is the next chapter in Seven’s journey.

For Beijing, Seven has assembled a world-class Olympic Winter Games commentary team that will anchor an exhilarating 17 days of astonishing sporting feats on snow and ice.

There will be up to 20 dedicated Olympic channels across Seven and 7plus, all live, free and in HD. Daily coverage will begin from midday AEDT on weekdays and 10.00am AEDT on weekends, until approximately 2.00am AEDT.

With Beijing in a favourable time zone for Australian viewers, the slope is carved perfectly for all Australians to enjoy every epic moment of the Games’ 17 days, with all the biggest events set to light up prime time.

It all kicks off two days before the Opening Ceremony, on Wednesday 2 February, when history will be made as Australia’s first curling team, Queenslander Tahli Gill and Victorian Dean Hewitt, take to the ice.

The Olympic Winter Games have long been the ultimate adrenaline-charged, death-defying spectacle in sport and television.  Australia heads to these Games with a talent-stacked team producing jumps and tricks never seen before in the history of winter sport – a mix of experience, young guns and unrivalled depth, with World Cup medallists across seven sports, three returning Olympic medallists and five world champions among them.

No one can take you inside this significant moment in history like the Seven Network. Our proud partnership with the Olympic Games stretches back to the advent of television in Australia 66 years ago. In every Summer and Winter edition of the Olympic and Paralympic Games we have covered since, we have taken our audience to a new level of viewing experience, and this Olympic Winter Games will be no different.

Much-loved and respected sports broadcasters Hamish McLachlan and Abbey Gelmi lead an incomparable Seven team whose experts include Australia’s two most decorated female aerial skiers, Jacqui Cooper and Lydia Lassila, and Olympic Winter cult legend Steven Bradbury.

From the opening ceremony to the closing ceremony – and every thrill and spill in between – the only place you can witness all the heart-stopping action live and free is Seven, Australia’s Home of the Olympics.

Lewis Martin, Seven’s Head of Network Sport

The Olympic Winter Games are a commitment to excellence that invigorates Seven and we look forward to meeting the challenge of bringing the biggest event in winter sport to all Australians.

50 days to go until the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022

With only 50 days to go, excitement is building ahead of the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022. The only place Australians can witness all the thrills and spills when the Games commence on 4 February is on Seven and 7plus, Australia’s Home of the Winter Olympics.

With the recent Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020 watched by more than 20 million viewers across 17 days, Australia and the world will reunite again to relish the adrenaline-pumping heights and sheer beauty of the Olympic Winter Games, featuring an impressive line-up of homegrown athletes with excellent medal chances.

Nothing brings Australians together for big cultural moments like an Olympic Games, Winter or Summer. Our Australian athletes and para athletes will once again be on the biggest stage competing with the world’s elite in the most spectacular setting of snow and ice.

Tokyo 2020 broke all viewing records and the Olympic Winter Games will break more records. There is simply no other event like it next year with a huge, unique and guaranteed prime time audience for brands to be part of across Channel 7, 7mate and 7plus. The smart brands choose to go where the audience will be and that place in 2022 will on Seven and 7plus on 4 February.

Australia’s preparations are peaking at the right time, with medals won across World Cup championships all over Europe over last weekend.

Almost all were outdone by Aussie Curling duo Dean Hewitt and Tahli Gill, who created history by qualifying in the Mixed Doubles Event for the very first time since Curling became a full Olympic sport in 1998. The pair booked their spot when they defeated Korea in the final qualification tournament held in the Netherlands.

Don’t miss a minute of the action over 16 thrilling days of the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022, all live and free on Seven and 7plus.

Exactly 12 days after the Flame is extinguished, a new one will be lit, signalling the start of the Paralympic Winter Games. Seven will bring Australians exclusive free-to-air coverage, including live streaming on 7plus for the first time.
