Olympic Channel adds five new federation partners

The Olympic Channel, an OTT platform operated by the International Olympic Committee, has added a further five international sports federations as content partners.

The partnerships are with the following IOC-recognised federations: World Confederation of Billiards Sports; International Cheer Union; World Minigolf Sport Federation; Federation Internationale de Savate; and the International Federation of Sleddog Sports.

The new agreements bring the number of the global platform’s federation partners to 83.

Olympic Channel federation partners include international federations, recognised federations and organisations, multi-sport organisers and non-recognised federations.

In addition to collaborating on live streaming and event coverage, the Olympic Channel provides an additional platform to its federation partners by distributing content that is complementary to current broadcast agreements.

The International Olympic Committee furthered the reach of its Olympic Channel last month by agreeing a partnership with OTT streaming service Roku.
