CBC/Radio-Canada Nets Olympic Broadcast Rights From 2026 to 2032
The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has announced that CBC/Radio-Canada, Canada’s national public broadcaster, has secured the exclusive broadcast rights in Canada for the following Olympic Games: Olympic Winter Games Milano Cortina 2026, Los Angeles 2028, Olympic Winter Games 2030 (the host of which is yet to be selected) and Brisbane 2032.
Including the Olympic Games Paris 2024, for which the public broadcaster has already been awarded the rights, CBC/Radio-Canada will continue to serve as Canada’s Olympic network for the next five Olympic Games.
“The Olympics are the culmination of so many athletes’ dreams,” says Catherine Tait, president and CEO, CBC/Radio-Canada. “As Canada’s public broadcaster, we’re proud to share their journey, from local competitions across the country all the way through to national and world championships throughout the year. It’s an honor to be able to continue sharing these great stories with Canadians for years to come.”
“We are proud of our partnership with CBC/Radio-Canada and delighted to be able to continue working together for another decade at least,” says Thomas Bach, president of the International Olympic Committee. “This agreement demonstrates a commitment to the Olympic values, the Olympic Games and the development of sport. This agreement will support athletes at all levels in Canada and around the world.”
CBC/Radio-Canada has acquired rights across all media platforms, including television and digital. The agreement includes a commitment to broadcast at least 200 hours of the Olympic Games and 100 hours of the Olympic Winter Games on free-to-air television.
