During the London 2012 Olympic Games, you can count on amazing coverage of the Games from CTV on your television and from our sister site CTVOlympics.ca online.
The extensive digital coverage of London 2012 will include live video streaming, athlete profiles, photo galleries, trivia questions, broadcast schedules and more, right through to the Closing Ceremony on August 12.
During the Games, you’ll notice little Olympics content on this website as we push it all to CTVOlympics.ca. This is in compliance with Canada’s Olympic Broadcast Media Consortium rules.
These rules and temporary changes to our on-air schedule mean changes to some of our local and national newscasts. These changes include:
- CTV Morning Live will be pre-empted during the Olympics starting Monday July 30 and will return Monday August 13
- CTV News at Noon, CTV News at Five, will be pre-empted starting Friday July 27 and will return Monday August 13
- CTV News at 5:30 will be pre-empted starting Monday July 30, returning Monday August 13
- Restricted access to online videos of our newscasts to Canadians only
- No videos of the National News with Lisa LaFlamme on the iPad. Tablet viewers will still find the newscast at CTVNews.ca.
- All Olympic features and news will live on CTVOlympics.ca, not on CTVNews.ca.
Once the Olympics are over, worldwide access to the full gamut of our online video will be restored and the National News and other newscasts will return in their entirety to CTVNews.ca across all platforms.
CTV Calgary will continue to offer a full hour on CTV News at Six, and provide a complete wrap-up to your day at 11:30 pm each night. Plus, for the latest breaking news, top local stories, weather and much more, please stay with CTVCalgary.ca online, via Twitter and Facebook throughout your day.
