2012 Olympics with audio description on IOS?

iOS & iPadOS
Anyone know how one can listen to radio or tv re 2012 Olympics opening ceremony and also get audio description. Looks like it's available in England, but NBC doesn't list it for opening ceremony. ??

Well, I don't have an answer for you but I do wonder if something like TuneIn Radio wouldn't have it? Some of the NFL games that I couldn't get were found through a station I found in the UK by using this app. Just a thought.

Hi, The BBC will have a link to the Opening Ceremony from the home page with enriched commentary for blind and partially sighted visitors to the site. I'm afraid this will only be available in the UK however due to licensing issues (UK residents all pay a TV licence fee). It will be available Audio Only on UK TV channels such as Freeview channel 301, or via the red button. Via the Red Button on Freesat, Sky & Virgin Media in both SD & HD. And the audio feed will be on Radio 5live Olympics Extra on DAB. I hope that helps. Henny
