Olympic Channel agrees more federation partnerships

The Olympic Channel, an OTT platform operated by the International Olympic Committee, has reached agreements with six more international governing bodies to collaborate on live event coverage.

It has signed agreements with three IOC recognised federations – the International Chess Federation (FIDE), International Federation Icestocksport (IFI), and International Life Saving Federation (ILS) – and also three Alliance of Independent recognised Members of Sports (AIMS) – International Dragon Boat Federation (IDBF), International Sepak takraw Federation (ISTAF) and World Armwrestling Federation (WAF).

The deals bring Olympic Channel’s number of federation partners to 91 after adding five other federation content partners in May.
