Scores, Trivia and Video (in Canada) with the CTV Olympics App

We already covered the Official London 2012 Olymics app, but that’s hardly the only one available to fans of the summer spectacle. The CTV Olympics App is also available (free) in App World for all you sport fans. And while this one may not be the “official” Olympics app, it’s got a real shot of interesting you even more than its official counterpart.

The two features most likely to be used by true fans are probably the live video and highlights functions. (I should point out that I, from America, couldn’t access either of these features. I got a pop-up that said video may only be played via WiFi – though at first I thought that that may have had to do with my service provider. When I switched to WiFi, that didn’t work either. Seemingly, the video features are designed for a Canadian audience.) Other interesting choices on the app are the athletic results, “Passion to Win” trivia function, and the extensive athlete list (searchable by country or sport).

Though the app seemed to move a bit slowly, it’s a free app with some really nice features, so if you’re looking to learn about the goings-on in London, you may as well give it a whirl.

  1. The CTV Olympic App for the BlackBerry is the Official Olympic app as CTV is the official carrier of the Broadcast rights in Canada (therefore it won’t work in another country).

    The app recently had an update that fixed the Live stream issue, so the live stream video works now. Although it’s a Bell Media app, it works across all Canadian carrier but to stream or watch video, you would have to be connected to wifi.

    Overall the app is good, the live stream is the best part of the app, recommended for any Canadian BB users.

  2. Thanks for the write up! Awesome app. It works great on my 9900 and 9700. We’ve been watching live video for hours (on wifi of course).
