CTVOlympics.ca - Mobile Olympic Alerts

January 6, 2010

So, one of the biggest media-related items I’ve been waiting on has apparently been there all along!

While at the Games, I’m unfortunately probably going to miss a fair number of results…time spent at events, travelling to/from them, time wandering around etc etc etc. Now, I’m certainly not complaining, but all that running around is going to make it somewhat tough to stay on top of how Canada is doing at other events. As a result, I’ve been really hoping that CTV, as the official broadcaster, would have SMS Mobile Alerts.


CTVOlympics.ca Mobile Alerts!

So, when @CTVOlympics tweeted today asking for feedback on their social media approach, I asked what was up with the lack of Mobile Alerts….and apparently I’m just too slow to find them on CTVOlympics.ca Webpage…they’ve been there all along it would seem.

So, for anyone else out there looking for Mobile Alerts during the Games, head on over to CTVOlympics.ca, and sign up for an account. SMS alerts are buried in your profile, once you get it all set up. They could probably find a more conspicuous location for them, but at least they are there!!

Also - For any Americans kicking around, NBC is offering the same service, geared towards US Athletes, right here.

This is so great...I'm going to tweet out the NBC link to our US Speedskating followers. Thanks, Scott!
