In France the L'Equipe channel (21) has been broadcasting biathlon since the beginning of the season, and I believe they have committed to at least one more year. As I don't have Eurosport this is good news, I only wish they would broadcast X-country as well. Apparently biathlon has pretty good audiences so far.Christian said:Yeah I forgot about the Norwegian team. I hadn't been able to watch biathlon for a long time so I was happy to accidentally come across it on TV last night, luckily I was able to start watching right at the beginning of the race. The relay races are the ones I like best, too.
I realized that almost all advertisements along the tracks were from German companies, like DKB or Bauhaus. This is not counting BMW and Audi who are international brands. But it made me wonder whether the biggest TV audiences for biathlon are in Germany. For example I never saw it on French TV (although I must say I did not receive Eurosport at the time)
