Super Bowl on Chinese TV

Posted in American football at 7:44 am by Nicole

One of the regular blog readers asked this week about where he could find his beloved American football on Chinese television, and I’m hearing from friends in China that CCTV-5 is your source. Drop me a line (nicole AT wokpopcorn DOT com)  if you hear differently…but hopefully it will be on and China-based American football fans can watch the latest round of the Boston-New York all-sports rivalry live and in color.

No doubt you’ve noticed the silence on the blog this past month…partly it’s because accessing the blog during my December trip to Beijing was more than challenging (slow Internet connections, etc.), and partly because I’ve been invited to blog on the Beijing Olympics for Sports Illustrated’s FanNation site. The Beijing Olympics Blog was launched in early December and I’ll be blogging regularly there from now until the Olympics. I’ll also post frequently here, especially with links to articles that may not be specifically Olympics-related, so that Chinese sports fans can keep up with the latest news. In the meantime I invite you to check out the Beijing Olympics Blog. Just 216 days to go until the Opening Ceremony…
