Watch the Olympics live online
BBC Sport will provide video coverage of the Olympics for UK broadband users
The 2004 Olympic Games marks a new stage in the evolution of the BBC Sport website.

If you want to keep up with all the latest action from Athens this summer, we will bring you comprehensive live audio and video coverage online.

This summer, for the first time, UK users of the site with broadband at home will get a whole new viewing experience.

They will be able to:

  • Watch live coverage of the Games from BBC One and BBC Two on the web as well as on TV;
  • Follow live video from up to four other events at once;
  • Listen to audio commentary of the action from BBC Radio Five Live;
  • Review the latest events and select special highlights packages;
  • See how it is done with special video from the BBC Sport Academy, where the stars show you how .

BBC Sport's Olympic broadband service will be live from Athens every day between 0700 and 2300 BST.

To be able to watch the Games online, you need to live in the UK and have a broadband connection at home.

If you have not yet got broadband and want to make sure you see the Olympics service from the August 13 opening ceremony onwards, you will need to contact a service provider.

If you want more details on how to do this, or which service providers will give you access to the Olympics, go to the BBC's broadband site.

With BBC Sport providing more than 1,200 hours of coverage on the web, you can make sure you do not miss out on your favourite events from the world's biggest sporting extravaganza.

There will be a full schedule for each of our five video channels in the BBC Sport Player as well as the latest news and results.

You will also be able to talk to other fans while you watch and play our Athens 2004 game, Herculympics, from within the Sport Player.

To try out the Player, click on the OPEN AUDIO AND VIDEO button at the top right of this page now to see highlights from a great summer of sport so far - every match from Euro 2004 and daily round-ups from Wimbledon and The Open golf.
