No Sue Barker again. Sad They really are phasing her out, aren't they.

Looks very good apart from that, though. Obviously they wouldn't have got the red button broadcast streams together for a more minority event such as the Winter Olympics - great to use the Connected TV and website to show a decent number of streams.

I think the Paralympics will clash with Cheltenham next year so they'll be a decision needed on where she's most valued to them.

Surprised Gabby Logan isn't involved though then again it does clash with the Six Nations.
I preferred the internet when it had a sense of humour.

Won't it also clash with Splash for Gabby?

Don't think it's confirmed in today's release but reports at the weekend quoting Clare Balding as saying that she will be going to Russia to cover the games, so presumably it'll be anchored on location, which is all for the better - though in Vancouver they literally were on location most of the time and didn't seem to use the studio too much for the daytime snow sports coverage.

Yes, you can't expect someone to give up such a prestigious sporting event for the Winter Olympics.

Presumably, the production team of Splash will have negotiated the dates of the Winter Olympics to ensure that their filming dates don't clash.
