What time is the Winter Paralympics Opening Ceremony on TV in the UK?

Coverage of the opening ceremony begins at 10.55am live on Channel 4 on Friday 9th March, with commentator Rob Walker presenting the coverage with Ade Adepitan and Sean Rose.

Then later on Friday night at 10pm, Adam Hills will present a special Winter Paralympics edition of The Last Leg with Alex Brooker and Josh Widdecombe.

How can I watch the Winter Paralympics on TV in the UK?

Channel 4 is the exclusive UK broadcaster of the 2018 Winter Paralympics, and is the only place to watch the events live or catch up on the highlights.

The nine hour time difference between South Korea and the UK means that, like the Winter Olympics, much of the action will take place in the early hours. However, Channel 4 will still be bringing a mixture of live sport and highlight shows to make sure you’re up to date.

Channel 4 will broadcast live coverage every night from around 12.30am, with commentary from Rob Walker, Ed Leigh, Season Rose, John Rawling & Michael McCreadie.

Every morning Channel 4 will also show Winter Paralympics Breakfast, rounding up the highlights from the night, presented by Ade Adepitan, Sophie Morgan and Arthur Williams.

Then in the evening presenters Clare Balding and Lee McKenzie will lead Winter Paralympics Today along with a host of Paralympic experts, followed by more highlights at 11pm.

Channel 4’s digital station 4Seven meanwhile will show audio described highlights every day.

Check out the full schedule below to see what Channel 4 will be showing when, including day-by-day guides to the best British medal hopefuls.
