Special event 5.30am, Nine
Nine’s blanket coverage as host broadcaster of the London 2012 Olympic Games kicks off with exclusive live coverage of the Opening Ceremony, hosted by Eddie McGuire and Leila McKinnon.
The extravaganza starts at 5.30am, and for those wanting a Saturday sleep in, will be replayed at 2pm. It heralds the start of more than 300 hours of free-toair Olympics coverage on Nine across 16 days for the duration of the Games.
The action will be simulcast in high definition on GEM. Game on.
