Watch the 2012 Paralympic Games

Want to watch the 2012 Paralympic Games but don’t know where to go?

Here’s the rundown that ABC1 and ABC2 have put together (these times and dates are for East Coast Australians only):

Featuring over 100 hours of coverage, ABC1 and ABC2 will capture all the inspiring highlights from the 11 days of competition, including the spectacular Opening Ceremony (August 30) and Closing Ceremony (Sept 10) starring British band, Coldplay. Both ceremonies will be hosted on ABC1 by Adam Hills and sports presenter, Stephanie Brantz.

ABC1 will then kick off the broadcast with live Games coverage every morning – hosted by Karen Tighe, and then return each night to Stephanie Brantz for her Nightly Highlights show.

Joining Tighe and Brantz throughout the coverage will be an array of ABC sports reporters including Amanda Shalala, Clint Wheeldon, Gerry Collins (swimming), Peter Wilkins (cycling and wheelchair rugby), Quentin Hull (athletics), Peter Walsh (wheelchair basketball) and Darren Boyd.

Also providing special expert commentary will be former Australian Paralympians – Troy Sachs (wheelchair basketball), Heath Francis (athletics), Amy Winters (athletics) and Katrina Webb (athletics).

ABC2 will then carry on all the excitement of the day’s competition with a nightly Evening Show hosted by Stephanie Brantz, and entertainers Lawrence Mooney, Adam Zwar and Sam Pang. Each day the ABC2 broadcast team will be joined in their Olympic Park studio by Australian Paralympians who will discuss all the action and competition, and take a look at the lighter side of Paralympic sport.
