The 2012 Summer Olympics are just 47 days away and sports fans all over the world are already thinking about taking time off work to enjoy the Olympic fever. However, you don’t necessarily need to be around a TV set to enjoy the 302 events in London, as Eurosport and Eurosport 2, are available on your Android devices through Eurosport Player.

Moreover, if you’re one of the first lucky Galaxy S3 adopters, you’ll be able to enjoy all the Olympic events for free. Samsung is offering a 1-month subscription to Eurosport Player, which can be activated any time between July 14 and August 12.

If you’re thinking of getting a Samsung Galaxy S3, you now have one extra reason to do so by the end of next month. Samsung and Eurosport’s offer is available for all Galaxy S3 owners living in any country covered by the pan-European television sports network, except for Italy. The Galaxy S3 is not the first Android-based device to come with such a special deal this year, with the Acer Iconia A510 Olympic Tab also offering a free one-month subscription to Eurosport Player around the time of the Summer Olympics.

The Eurosport Player application can be downloaded for free from Google Play, while I’m sure we don’t have to tell you where to get the Galaxy S3. Enjoy!

    Your right this is one more reason to buy it.. I new samsung was promoting this phone as the official cell phone of the Olympics and now it makes sense.

  • Wow !! this is really a great news for all Samsung G S3 users. And you are at this point. It’s a very impressive way to promote this phone. Apple must copy this trick for its new iPhone.

      sorry but seems that you won’t get it for free in Singapore as the service will be available for customers in:
      Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Israel, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russian Federation, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Ukraine, and United Kingdom, the deal is good for one month of service.

      But see if you can d/l it any way and pay the 5 euros a month as it isn’t expensive for getting to watch the Olympics. :)
