British cable operator Virgin Media has struck a deal with the BBC and Eurosport that will give subscribers full coverage of the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Virgin customers will be able to watch live coverage via 24 standard and high definition channels as well as BBC 3D and Eurosport’s 3D channel. They will also have access to catch-up content across a number of platforms including the British public broadcaster’s red button services and Eurosport’s On Demand service.
