Eurosport is launching a trio of new channels to bring coverage of the Winter Olympics to the UK and Ireland.

Alongside existing Eurosport channels 1 and 2, from the 9-25 February, Eurosport 3, 4, and 5 will launch as the only places in the UK and Ireland to see all the action from the Games.

Live and on-demand coverage will also be available on the Eurosport Player online and on their app.

Eurosport is promising coverage of “every minute, every athlete and every sport”, providing over 4000 hours of coverage as well as expert analysis and punditry. The five Eurosport channels (1, 2, 3, 4, 5) will show live sports in the morning and analysis and highlights shown in the afternoons and evenings.

Olympian Jonathan Edwards will anchor a daily programme, PyeongChang Today, showcasing the biggest moments from the Games. He will be joined by co-anchors Shelly Rudman, who won silver medal for skeleton, four-time Olympic alpine skier Emma Carrick-Anderson, six-time Olympic cross-country skier Mike Dixon, and downhill skier Finlay Mickel.

Eurosport’s James Gibbons promised that the extended coverage would “bring fans closer to all the Olympic Games than ever before… An unprecedented five TV channels, together with Eurosport Player will show every minute of the Games, helping us to redefine the Olympic Games viewing experience for superfans.”

Eurosports channels 1 and 2 are available on BT TV, Sky, Virgin Media in the UK and Ireland, and Amazon Video.

PyeongChang Today will begin at 7pm GMT on Friday 9th February on Eurosport 1.
