As the home broadcaster for this summer’s Olympics in London, the BBC has set itself a daunting challenge: broadcast every event live. At times this means it will be transmitting 24 channels simultaneously. On the Sky satellite platform these will be individual channels on the EPG; they will appear as red button services on other platforms; and all will be streamed to the internet.
