  • How Will Folks Be Watching the Olympics in the States?

    Meaning the T&F.
    You there, on the motorbike! Sell me one of your melons!

    NBC on regular TV suffices for me

      Between T&F, track cycling, and road cycling my sleep pattern is going to be shot to hell.

      That said every Olympics I'm reminded of one of the prime benefits of being self-employed lol
      There are no strings on me

        I'm glad I'm not in the states.

        One hour time difference between Tokyo and east coast of Australia means a very friendly schedule for Aussies with most daily competition running from 10am to 11pm.

        Our free-to-air broadcaster will use two of its' TV channels for the main coverage with another 42 free HD streams covering all sports (inc complete field events) available. I imagine I'll have three devices plus the TV going at peak times.

        Let the Games begin!

          VPN to England (BBC) or Canada (CBC) or wherever I get the best coverage. NBC and its affiliates are acceptable for domestic coverage but it will be nice to have international options.

            I’m looking forward to seeing what Peacock has to offer. Hope it’s better for the hardcore fans than NBC prime time.

                  If 2016 is any indicator, you'll have more T&F content than you'll know what to do with on NBC this year

                    That's the right answer!

                      CBC. But I'll probably try a VPN via Opera and see if I can get BBC also.

                        World Athletics published the Olympic timetable in Tokyo time, starting the morning of July 30, Tokyo time (July 29 evening, US time):
                        https://www.worldathletics.org/compe...2391/timetable

                        Tokyo is 13 hours ahead of the US east coast. For the morning events there, subtract a day and an hour, then change AM to PM to get US Eastern time. For the evening events, subtract an hour and change PM to AM.

                          This Olympics, I'm reminded of the benefits of working from home. Except for the relays on Friday August 6, the evening events in Tokyo are all scheduled to be done before 9 am US Eastern time. With no commute, that makes it easy to watch everything before starting the workday.

                            Dies anyone know if NBC will broadcast in 4K? I'm considering upgrading from my 2008 42" plasma TV.
