This is the first of a couple posts tonight. TSN (and CTV) do a “By the Numbers” feature for all of their big properties (Grey Cup, World Juniors, Olympics etc.). I’ve received the London 2012 edition. Has a couple interesting behind the scenes figures.

  • 1,200 – members of the Consortium‟s production team
  • 703+ – hours of coverage in French

  • 223+ – hours of coverage that will air in languages other than English and French
  • 22 – hours of coverage each day on CTV
  • 22 – hours of coverage each day on RDS
  • Up to 15 – live streams available at CTVOlympics.ca and RDSolympiques.ca
