Organizers of the 2004 Olympics in Athens on Thursday forecast that radio and television rights for coverage of the Games would total around $800 million, sharply higher than $668 billion in the Sydney Olympics.
The Athens organizing committee said in a statement that it had so far signed final or preliminary contracts with 11 major TV networks from around the world; and deals with smaller networks would be signed in the near future.
Revenue from TV rights will represent the bulk of the organizers' income at forty two percent, the statement said.
