Olympic Channel, the multi-platform media service operated by the International Olympic Committee, has furthered its reach by agreeing a carriage deal with digital media platform Amazon Fire TV.

The new Olympic Channel app for Amazon Fire TV launches in conjunction with the one-year anniversary of the 2018 winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang and features a collection of programming to celebrate the event.

‘Rewind: PyeongChang 2018’ features top moments from the Games including the opening and closing ceremonies, gold medal performances, documentaries and original series about the athletes who competed in last year’s Games.

Olympic Channel content available on the new app also includes a 24/7 live stream, documentaries, memorable moments and more than 400 episodes from original series in the Olympic Channel library.
