Olympic Broadcasting Services

Olympic Broadcasting Services

Olympic Broadcasting Services (OBS) is an agency of the International Olympic Committee, established in 2001 to be responsible for host broadcasting - the world feeds provided to all international broadcasters of the Olympic Games from 2008 on, and provide continuity in Olympic coverage from one Games to the next. Previously the host broadcaster role was delegated to the local organising committees or to third-party broadcasters.

Its operations began with the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, where Beijing Olympic Broadcasting, a joint venture between OBS and the Beijing Organizing Committee, acted as the host broadcaster.

For the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, a wholly owned division, Olympic Broadcasting Services Vancouver, was set up. The executive director of OBSV is Nancy Lee, a former producer and executive for CBC Sports. The 2010 Olympics marked the first games where the host broadcasting facilities was provided solely by OBS.[1] The 2012 Olympics and Paralympics will similarly be broadcast by the OBS.[2]
