Some coverage of paradressage on Channel 4 confirmed

  • For dressage fans frustrated at the coverage of the equestrian events at the Paralympics there will be some – albeit limited – airtime.

    There will be some coverage of paradressage on Channel 4’s main channnel – according to the schedule.

    Tomorrow (Saturday 1 September) on C4 1pm-6.30pm there will be equestrian, alongsidejudo, cycling and basketball.

    Sunday (2 September) 1pm-5.30pm (with cycling, sitting volleyball)

    Monday (3 September) from 1pm-3.30pm basketball, equestrian, sitting volleyball

    Tuesday (4 September) from 1pm-3.30pm with basetball.

    A spokesman told H&H last week there would be “comprehensive equestrian coverage”.

    “We are likely to give the equestrian a big push because they are medal hopefuls,” he added.

    “Dressage will be a major feature of our morning and afternoon live programming. We will have an outside broadcast team at Greenwich Park throughout the Games to capture all the must-see moments.”

    There are three live broadcast streams online – C4 Paralympics Extra 1, 2 and 3 – as well as the main terrestrial channel. They will feature “live, uninterrupted coverage from early morning to late evening” on Sky, Freesat and Virgin Media.
