    I just noticed that the CBC Sochi 2014 App is available now for iOS, Android and even Windows Phone 8. It sucks that they left BB10 users out in the cold. I get why there are iOS and Android apps but Windows Phone 8? Are you kidding me? How many Windows Phone 8 users are there in Canada compared to BlackBerry 10? CBC has a native CBC News App and HNIC app for BB10 so I was a bit surprised to not see a Sochi 2014 app from them. It would be nice to watch Olympic coverage from my Z10. It looks like I will have to grab the Android APK for now .

    Interesting, considering I've never ever seen someone with a WP8 in Canada. Yet I've seen BB10 though randomly on the street.

    This goes to show Microsoft's execution in getting apps to their platform... or BlackBerry's lack of execution. You can pick.

    Is it a Windows Phone app or a Windows app?

    What a disgrace. WP is an even smaller market share than BB10 in Canada. #TaxDollarsBurnTheNicest

    So stupid. Windows Phone??? Even if you exclude BBOS, there has to be 20x the number of BB10 users versus WP in Canada.

    Yes, in the mobile space you are correct.
    But WP apps work on windows 8 pc's too.
    Factor those in with WP and you've got a substantial market share.
    Perhaps this is a factor?

    You'd better believe it! Microsoft isn't stupid, and by consolidating all of their hardware lines (PCs, phones, XBox) to the same base code, they create a huge ecosystem that can't be ignored. BB has no such ecosystem backing up their phones.

    CBC has been a great BB10 supporter to date. As well as the 2 mentioned above, there is also CBC Music which is great.

    Try this browse to olympics.cbc.ca and you'll get everything you need. Save the bookmark to your home screen.
