  • nbcolympics.com streaming (USA)

    The streams did not work very well on Saturday, but worked much better for me (and others per at least one forum I visited) on Sunday. Has anyone noticed how soon some of the morning sessions (for instance swimming) have been archived and available. I can't see the site at work so I have not noticed. I am hoping to be able to actually sleep in a few days, but still be able to watch some of the morning action online before the live 2nd session begins.

    Re: nbcolympics.com streaming (USA)

    I have watched both live and the archives each day, and haven't had any problems at all. As soon as the event finishes, it switches from live to archive immediately.

    Keep in mind, though, that an "event" is usually a "session", such as what's going on Court #3 in badminton. So with the nature of athletics being a three-ring circus, I'm not sure that "Men's Pole Vault" will be treated as a separate event. There is no doubt that they are going to have multiple cameras in operation, however, and we'll be able to choose which camera to stream.

      For some of the big name events, I read that the archive will be delayed until after the regular NBC broadcast. But I have not tested this.

        Women's gymnastics was available archived well before NBC's prime time telecast, and in NBC's logic there is nothing bigger than women's gymnastics.
        But you're right, I read the same thing a couple of weeks ago.

          It(live streams) does seem much better today than the last few, which gives me hope they've ironed out the glitches. We will see how it responds to the massive influx of viewers for the womens team gymnastic finals later this morning.
          There are no strings on me

              I have some doubt... but I hope you are a soothsayer on this one.

                I see that NBC are doing so badly for cash that on the West Coast they taped delayed by 6 hours the Opening Ceremony so as to maximise advertising income; they probably did not say sorry chaps its all over.No other country as far as we know did the same.Apparently 1pm to 5 pm does not make so much money

                This info above was tweeted by the Independents newspaper correspondent via his twitter account and now those great freedom loving Merkans from the American Twitter people have cancelled his account to the disgust of many.

                . Are NBC aware that there are quite a lot of other countries competing in events were there are no Americans.??

                  Que? How can that be? Every time I turn on the TV, it's all America, all the time!

                    I am sure they are aware, but don't really care. Nor should they. But they are streaming everything live, so what is the problem?

                    Why would NBC show the Opening ceremonies live?

                      Does anyone here know of a way to capture the livestream to computer? It's been a while since I've used this type of software, but I'm guessing that NBC hasn't made this easy to do. It would be nice to be able to have everything instead of just a couple of hours of editted coverage from the tape-delayed broadcast.

                        Perhaps there is a way for Americans to watch the BBC's coverage.

                          Why would they not; the rest of the world did!


                          Cos its normal and its right and cos it treats the viewers as intelligent ; NBC people who know only about the bottom line are one of the worst examples of so called TV coverage on the planet; NBCs stupid, money grubbingn narrow mindedness might suit you fans but most of us pray that the BBC, for all their faults, treat us to LIVE TV ; poor old Americans, do give us a call if there is an event with no Americans in it and we can tell you what happened. :lol:

                          Yesterday a friend from the States rang me to find out some results from certain events in the first few days cos it did not on the great NBC coverage. What a surprise!

                            Because the rest of the World gets the Olympics cheap, while the US TV subsidies the rest, for about $1.18 Billion.
                            • The BBC is understood to have paid much more than the £60 million it paid for the London Olympic rights, but compared to other rights fees the IOC has extracted around the world, the fee is considered relatively light, by sources familiar with the negotiations.

                              The IOC has previously completed 2014-16 Olympic deals with France for £80 million, Germany for £120 million, Spain for £66 million and Italy for £141 million.

                              If you want money grubbing it is the IOC who have it down pat. NBC is losing money on the Olympics.

                              Without American TV loot, the Olympics would half the size, if that. So get off your high horse and remember that.
