C&W Communications to bring more Caribbean Olympic content  

C&W Communications, operators of Flow and LIME brands in the Caribbean, has pledged to bring more Caribbean Olympic content to regional fans. 

With just under a year to go before the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, C&W, the exclusive telecommunications partner to the Caribbean Association of National Olympic Committees, has also committed to support Caribbean athletes as they pursue their Olympic dreams. 

Last week, Flow Jamaica announced a major partnership with the Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association in a two-year deal valued at J$28M (US$239,000) to sponsor its national championships and teams. In the coming weeks, other C&W markets across the region are expected to announce their support of local athletes in preparation for Rio 2016. 

The company has also announced its intention to bring multi-platform streams of exclusive, locally focused content featuring Caribbean athletes at the Games. 

“We are proud to bring a more enriched Olympic experience to the Caribbean,” said John Reid, president of the C&W Consumer Group.
