It's on Channel 4 in the UK which means that we have to put up with ad breaks, which is seriously annoying when for the Olympics the BBC would just broadcast for about 18 hours a day without interruption.

Channel 4 appears to have put a heck of a lot of effort into their coverage, I am pretty sure they will be very select about their adverts (obviously I will eat my hat if I am wrong!!)

I don't like that it's on Channel 4, the ad breaks and the presenters ruin it.

Just saw them singing along to the national anthem, standing with the Princess Royal and Sam Cam. HM looks a bit happier tonight than she did for the Olympics opening ceremony!

That Benjamin Britten arrangement of God Save the Queen is my personal favourite.

The Opening Ceremony looks really lovely.
Athletes parade - Armenia will come soon (although we've only sent 2 or 3 athletes).

Hating the coverage by Channel 4 - evidence of why major events and sporting events should be covered by the BBC which has the power of presenters and history in covering these events.

Kate is wearing the coat that she wore to Zara's wedding and the wedding of Laura Parker Bowles.

The Queen has taken her place at the #Paralympics opening ceremony. Seated next to Prince Edward. Gave us a smile.

A huge cheer for HM the Queen as she makes a convential entrance to the Paralympic games & takes her place by the Earl & Countess of Wessex

British Royals ‏@britishroyals
Prince William & Kate seated with Princess Anne. Kate wearing a recycled cream/gold coat. This is the 3rd time I've seen her wear it.
A good cap from the broadcast

I wish Krishnan Guru-Murthy would stop interrupting his Canadian co-commentator! So far Krishnan's done a pretty awful job of explaining things to us.

Armenia looking good, Artemisia!

Thank you. Just a couple of athletes but it's participation that matters.

Since our début (1996 in Summer Paralympics and1998 in Winter Paralympics), we've taken part in every single one. Never won a medal, but one of our athletes, Mher Avanesyan, is one of the few to have competed in both Summer and Winter Olympics.

Good luck to all the athletes: their spirit and resolution is amazing!

He's already made his appearance, Lumutqueen, and just to prove how dense the British populations is, 'Steven Hawkins' immediately started trending on Twitter in the UK.

I've only just noticed, no French this time!

Live coverage has just now started on german tv... probably missed a lot of the good stuff?

Anyway, i saw Her Majesty, so that's at least something :-)
