2012 Olympic Hockey TV Schedule

With all of the (field) hockey on Canadian television during the London Olympics you’d think CTV executives are confused about which hockey sport is part of the Summer Olympic program. Despite Canada not qualifying in the men’s or women’s events, the Canadian broadcast consortium will show 16 hockey matches from the Games. Many others will air in Punjabi on OMNI (see the daily Olympic schedules for updates on OMNI’s schedule). The favourites in the men’s tournament include Germany (2008 Olympic gold medallists), Australia (2010 World Champions), the Netherlands, and Great Britain. The women’s favourites include the Netherlands (2008 Olympic gold medallists) and Argentina (2010 World Champions).

Remember that this schedule is highly subject to change. Check back daily during The Games for an up-to-date broadcast schedule. All times are Atlantic Daylight Time, which is BST-4 and EDT+1.
