China Network Television (CNTV) and internet video technology provider NeuLion have announced the launch of a new premium HD streaming service in China for the 2012 Olympics.

As the official internet/mobile platform distribution entity of the 2012 London Olympics, CNTV has the exclusive new media distribution rights in Mainland China and the territory of Macau.

By leveraging NeuLion’s TVE (Television Everywhere) technology and video platform infrastructure inside China, the partnership will deliver more than 5,600 hours of live HD Olympic coverage, including a 24/7 live channel from CCTV and daily live event coverage of nine Olympic sports, on PCs and mobile devices.
