The International Olympics Committee is creating its own YouTube channel to carry highlights of the Beijing games to 77 countries in Africa, Asia and the Middle East where online rights have not been sold or have been acquired non-exclusively, the IOC said today (Wednesday). The YouTube channel will be blocked from other areas of the world by a technology called "geo-blocking," the technology used by U.S. networks and film studios to prevent their content from being viewed overseas.
