RTHK announced on Friday it will show live Winter Olympics action on its TV channel 32.

The public broadcaster said it will show the opening and closing ceremonies of the Beijing Games live, as well as about five hours of live competition every day, totalling at least 60 hours.

RTHK will air footage provided by TVB, the local rights holder of the Games.

Director of Broadcasting Patrick Li said this is the first time Beijing will host the Winter Olympics and Paralympics, and RTHK will offer a platform for the Hong Kong audience to witness world-class sporting action as well as the Olympic spirit on display.

RTHK will also show action from the Beijing Winter Paralympics.

The Winter Olympic Games will be held from February 4 to 20, and the Winter Paralympic Games are set for March 4 to 13.
