Olympic Games to Be Broadcast Online

World Journal, Posted: Jun 26, 2008

NEW YORK Sohu, an Internet company based in Beijing, recently signed a contract with the Beijing Olympics Committee to broadcast the Olympic Games on the Internet for 3,800 hours, reports the World Journal. The online broadcast is seen as a way to combat the illegal trade of tickets to the Olympics. More than 4,000 tickets to the Olympics opening and closing ceremonies have been found for sale on a Chinese trading Web site in the three days since the resale of Olympics tickets was allowed. Some tickets that originally sold for 5,000 RMB (about $714) are now priced at 100,000 RMB (about $14,286). According to rules set by the Beijing Olympics Committee, tickets to the Olympic Games may be resold only once, and at their original price. It is against the committees rules to make money from the resale of tickets.
