The so far always extensive TV coverage of the Paralympic Games on ARD and ZDF is questionable from next year on.
The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) does not have the rights to the European Broadcasting Union for the Games in Beijing in 2022 and in Paris in 2024 (EBU), which also includes the first and the second. Instead, the Infront agency acquired the rights package for 51 European countries with the exception of Great Britain (2022) and France (2024).
ARD and ZDF have been reporting on the Paralympics for many years and are also planning to do so for the relocated games in Tokyo, for which they hold the rights via the EBU. “We don’t know how things will go on after that,” said ARD. The public broadcasters had recently expanded their coverage of the Paralympics.
From Pyeongchang they showed more than 65 hours live.
