Radios for Rio

11.08.2016

Rio 2016 fever is sweeping the UK - and it’s no different at BWBF’s head office.

Rio fever is building across the UK as Team GB adds to its Olympic medal haul – and BWBF is reminding supporters they can listen to the coverage on their radios.

Whichever set you have from British Wireless, you can enjoy the BBC’s live coverage of the Greatest Show on Earth in your living room.

The Olympics is being broadcast on BBC Radio 5 Live.

Whether you enjoy the FM or DAB functions on your Concerto 2 or Duet 2 or are using our internet radio the Sonata Plus+, you will be able to enjoy the action as it happens.

This will continue with full coverage of the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games when it starts on Wednesday, September 7th.

Team GB has already seen some brilliant performances and medal success in events including taking gold in the synchronised diving, canoeing and swimming.

The action continues until Sunday, August 21st – the last day of the competition – so make sure you tune into the radio coverage and don’t miss a moment!
