    USA Viewing = NBC ... information, schedules, praise, complaints

    Universal Sports - http://universalsports.com/

    I'm adding the link to Universal Sports. No actual sports coverage on Universal but, like Vancouver, there will most likely be lots of news, analysis, and background shows. No schedule as yet.

    Here's the main informational press release. It's pretty long so I tried to hi-lite the most important information.

    May 23, 2012
    NBCUNIVERSAL TO PROVIDE UNPRECEDENTED COVERAGE OF 2012 LONDON OLYMPICS

    Record 5,535 Hours across NBC, NBC Sports Network, MSNBC, CNBC, Bravo, Telemundo, NBCOlympics.com, Two Specialty Channels & 3D

    NBC to Broadcast 272.5 Hours, Most-Ever for an Olympic Broadcast Network

    NEW YORK – May 23, 2012 – NBCUniversal will provide 5,535 hours of coverage for the 2012 London Olympics across NBC, NBC Sports Network, MSNBC, CNBC, Bravo, Telemundo, NBCOlympics.com, two specialty channels, and the first-ever 3D platform, an unprecedented level that surpasses the coverage of the 2008 Beijing Olympics by nearly 2,000 hours. It was also announced today that NBC will broadcast 272.5 hours of coverage, the most ever for an Olympic broadcast network, largely attributable to an increase in daytime coverage.

    “We are only able to provide this level of coverage to U.S. viewers because of the unmatched array of NBCUniversal assets,” said Mark Lazarus, Chairman, NBC Sports Group. “Whether on television or online, on broadcast or cable, in English or in Spanish, NBCUniversal has the London Olympics covered, providing the American viewer with more choices than ever to watch the Games.”

    Following are highlights of NBCUniversal’s coverage of the 2012 London Olympics (some of the following information has been previously announced):

    · NBCUniversal is presenting its 13th Olympic Games and seventh consecutive, both the most by any U.S. media company. ABC is second with 10 and four (twice), respectively.

    o London will be NBCUniversal’s seventh consecutive Summer Games, having presented each one since Seoul in 1988.

    · The 5,535 hours of Olympic coverage are the most ever and surpass Beijing’s coverage (3,600 hours) by nearly 2,000 hours.

    o The 5,535 hours more than double the total amount of coverage of every Summer Games combined prior to Beijing (2,562 hours from 1960 Rome on CBS to 2004 Athens on NBC).

    o The 5,535 hours are the equivalent of 231 days of coverage.

    o NBCUniversal will average 291 hours of coverage per day over London’s 19 days (including two days of soccer competition prior to the Opening Ceremony).

    · The networks of NBCU will provide coverage of all 32 sports and all 302 medal competitions.

    · NBC will broadcast 272.5 hours of London Olympic coverage over 17 days, the most extensive coverage ever provided by an Olympic broadcast network, and nearly 50 hours more than the 225 hours for Beijing in 2008.

    o Daytime coverage has increased significantly for London. Coverage will begin on most weekdays at 10 a.m. ET/PT, immediately following NBC News’ TODAY, which is originating from London.

    o On weekends, NBC’s daytime coverage will begin as early as 5 a.m. ET/PT.

    · NBC Sports Network will serve as the home to U.S. team sports, with 292.5 hours of total coverage from 2012 London Olympics this summer, including 257.5 hours of original programming – an average of more than 14 hours per day – the most-ever for an Olympic cable network.

    · MSNBC will carry 155.5 hours of a wide variety of long-form Olympic programming over 19 days.

    · CNBC will serve as the home of Olympic boxing this summer, including the debut of women’s boxing. The channel will televise 73 hours of boxing coverage over 16 days -- from elimination bouts to the men’s and women’s finals.

    · Bravo will act as the home of Olympic tennis this summer, televising 56 hours of long-form tennis coverage from July 28-August 3.

    · NBCOlympics.com will live stream every event and sport for the first time ever. In all, the site will live stream more than 3,500 total programming hours, including the awarding of all 302 medals.

    o NBCOlympics.com will live stream NBCU cable channels NBC Sports Network, MSNBC, CNBC and Bravo, which will only be available to authenticated cable, satellite or telco customers.

    o Two apps – one focused on live streaming, one on short-form highlights, schedules, results, columns, and more – will be available for mobile and tablet users. The vast majority of content will only be available to authenticated cable, satellite or telco customers.

    · NBCUniversal announced the most extensive Spanish-language Olympic coverage in the company’s history, offering more than 173 hours of the upcoming London 2012 Olympics on Telemundo, “The U.S. Home of the Olympic Games in Spanish.”

    o The 173 hours of Spanish-language coverage by Telemundo nearly equals the total coverage broadcast by NBC for the 1996 Atlanta Olympics (176.5).

    · Specialty channels for basketball and soccer are available to cable, satellite and telco providers, and will total 770 hours of coverage.

    · Panasonic Corporation of North America and the NBC Sports Group announced in January that they will partner to make the London 2012 Olympic Games available in 3D to all U.S. distributors who carry Olympic coverage on cable, satellite and telco -- nearly 100 percent of the multichannel industry.

    o The effort will produce 242 hours of coverage and mark the first time that the Olympic Games will be distributed in the U.S. in 3D.

    NBC

    NBC will broadcast 272.5 hours of London Olympic coverage over 17 days this summer, the most extensive coverage ever provided by an Olympic broadcast network, and nearly 50 hours more than the 225 hours for Beijing in 2008. Swimming -- including Michael Phelps’ quest to become the most decorated Olympian ever -- track and field, gymnastics, diving, and beach volleyball, among other sports, will serve as the centerpieces of NBC’s coverage, which begins with the Opening Ceremony at 7:30 p.m. ET/PT on Friday, July 27.

    Olympic coverage on NBC will again be divided into three day parts: daytime, primetime and late night. NBC’s primetime program, featuring the traditional, award-winning Olympic storytelling coverage that viewers have come to expect, will air 8-11:30 p.m. or Midnight ET/PT on most nights.

    Daytime coverage has increased significantly for London. Coverage will begin on most weekdays at 10 a.m. ET/PT, immediately following TODAY, which is originating from London. On weekends, NBC’s daytime coverage will begin as early as 5 a.m. ET/PT. A one-hour late night show will begin 30 minutes after the conclusion of the primetime program. Primetime will be replayed following the late-night show.

    It was announced in April that Bob Costas, a 22-time Emmy Award-winning broadcaster, returns as the primetime host for NBC’s coverage. For Costas, London marks his 10th Olympic broadcast assignment and his ninth as the primetime host (Barcelona 1992, Atlanta 1996, Sydney 2000, Salt Lake City, 2002, Athens 2004, Torino 2006, Beijing 2008, Vancouver 2010).

    Al Michaels, who hosted daytime coverage at the Vancouver Olympic Winter Games, and Dan Patrick, making his Olympic hosting debut, will host NBC’s weekday and weekend daytime coverage, and Mary Carillo will once again host the NBC late night show.

    Additionally, top TV broadcaster Ryan Seacrest, tennis legend John McEnroe, famed gymnastics coach Bela Karolyi, and Carillo, broadcasting her 11th Olympic Games, will serve as Olympic correspondents during primetime coverage on NBC.

    The majority of the following information about NBC Sports Network, MSNBC, CNBC, Bravo, NBCOlympics.com and Telemundo, has been previously announced:

    NBC SPORTS NETWORK

    NBC Sports Network will serve as the home to U.S. team sports, with 292.5 hours of total coverage from 2012 London Olympics this summer, including 257.5 hours of original programming – an average of more than 14 hours per day – the most-ever for an Olympic cable network. Coverage will begin on Wednesday, July 25, at 11:30 a.m. ET, two days before the Opening Ceremony, when Team USA takes on France in women’s soccer, live from Hampden Park in Glasgow, Scotland.

    NBC Sports Network coverage, originating from Olympic Park in London, will air up to 20 medal rounds and 22 Olympic sports, including Team USA basketball, women’s soccer and field hockey.

    NBC Sports Network, distributed in nearly 80 million homes – an increase of three million homes in the last year – will also carry soccer qualifying on Thursday, July 26. There will be no coverage on July 27 as there are no events scheduled on the same day as the Opening Ceremony. Coverage will conclude on NBC Sports Network on Sunday, August 12, the final day of competition. On most days, coverage will air from 4 a.m. – 8 p.m. ET, which covers the live Olympic day in London.

    MSNBC

    MSNBC, NBCUniversal’s 24/7 cable news channel that is fully distributed in roughly 100 million homes, will carry 155.5 hours of a wide variety of long-form Olympic programming over 19 days. The channel will air up to 18 medal rounds and 20 Olympic sports, from badminton to basketball to soccer to wrestling.

    NBCUniversal’s 2012 London Olympic coverage begins on MSNBC on Wednesday, July 25 – two days before the Opening Ceremony -- when Great Britain faces New Zealand in women’s soccer, the first official competition of the Games, live from Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, Wales. Coverage begins at 10:30 a.m. ET/7:30 a.m. PT.

    The channel will also carry soccer qualifying on Thursday, July 26, but there will be no coverage on July 27 as there are no events scheduled on the same day as the Opening Ceremony. Coverage will conclude on MSNBC on August 12, the final day of competition.

    On most weekdays, coverage will air from 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. ET. There will be longer programming windows on Saturdays and Sundays.

    Longtime Golf Channel commentator Kelly Tilghman will serve as MSNBC’s Olympic host, with London being her first-ever Olympic assignment. MSNBC has aired Olympic coverage for every Summer Games since the 2000 Sydney Olympics.

    CNBC

    CNBC -- NBCUniversal’s fully distributed cable business channel -- will serve as the home of Olympic boxing this summer, including the debut of women’s boxing. The channel will televise 73 hours of boxing coverage over 16 days -- every day from July 28-August 12 -- from elimination bouts to the men’s and women’s finals. Same-day coverage will air from 5-8 p.m. ET during the week, with six hours of live coverage airing each day on the weekends. This marks the fourth consecutive Summer Games that CNBC has featured Olympic boxing.

    Fred Roggin, the longtime lead sports anchor at NBC’s owned-and-operated station in Los Angeles, KNBC, will reprise his Beijing role as Olympic boxing host. This will be his seventh Olympics working for NBC and fourth working on Olympic boxing in some capacity.

    BRAVO

    Bravo, NBCUniversal’s fully distributed lifestyle cable channel, will act as the home of Olympic tennis this summer. The channel will televise 56 hours of long-form tennis coverage over seven days, from July 28-August 3. Live coverage will air from early morning until mid-afternoon (ET) on most days.

    Pat O’Brien, a veteran of five Olympic Games as a commentator, will serve as host. London will be O’Brien’s fourth Olympics for NBC and sixth overall. He last worked for NBCUniversal at the 2004 Athens Olympic Games, the same year Bravo last carried Olympic competition.

    NBCOLYMPICS.COM

    NBCOlympics.com will live stream every event and sport for the first time ever. In all, the site will live stream more than 3,500 total programming hours, including the awarding of all 302 medals. By comparison, NBCOlympics.com live streamed 25 sports and 2,200 hours for the 2008 Beijing Olympics. The site will also feature rewinds of all event coverage, a steady stream of athlete profiles, event highlights, a tour of London as the host city, and more.

    NBCOlympics.com will live stream the Olympic content that airs on the four NBCU cable channels -- NBC Sports Network, MSNBC, CNBC and Bravo. In addition, two apps – one focused on live streaming, one on short-form highlights, schedules, results, columns, and more – will be available for mobile and tablets users. The vast majority of content will only be available to authenticated cable, satellite or telco customers.

    In another first, NBCOlympics.com will provide multiple concurrent streams for select sports, such as gymnastics (each apparatus), track and field (each event), and tennis (up to five courts). For example, during a session of track and field, instead of viewing only a single feed that moves from event to event, a user can choose to watch a stream dedicated to a specific event, such as the long jump or javelin.

    TELEMUNDO

    NBCUniversal announced the most extensive Spanish-language Olympic coverage in the company’s history, offering more than 173 hours of the upcoming London 2012 Olympics on Telemundo, “The U.S. Home of the Olympic Games in Spanish.” Telemundo’s comprehensive coverage will feature marquee disciplines such as boxing, swimming, basketball and soccer, which will be a major broadcast highlight.

    Telemundo will deliver a complete 360° Olympic experience across its multiple platforms including its broadcast network, www.NBCOLYMPICS.COM.com/TELEMUNDO and its cable network mun2, which will offer a daily half-hour special featuring behind-the-scenes from the Games. Also, for the first time in the network’s history, Telemundo will offer live streaming of broadcast coverage together with exclusive digital-only content of Olympic events, news, announcements and information via www.NBCOLYMPICS.COM/TELEMUNDO, totaling more than 200 hours of digital content.

    Deportes Telemundo’s Olympic team, headed by internationally acclaimed sportscaster Andrés Cantor, will include Jessi Losada, Mónica Noguera, Sammy Sadovnik, Edgar Lopez, René Giraldo, Karim Mendiburu, Kaziro Aoyama, Oscar Guzmán, Leti Coo and Verónica Contreras, as well as several former Olympic champions.

    Coverage will be live from both London and the network’s studios, bringing the stories of Hispanics participating in the Olympics and the main events both on the field and around the Games to the homes of millions of U.S. Hispanic viewers. With soccer being one of the biggest passion points for U.S. Hispanics, the Olympics’ soccer tournament will represent a major focus of Telemundo’s broadcast, as already-qualified Mexico, Brazil, Uruguay, Spain and Honduras vie for the gold.

    Features and storytelling will be a centerpiece of Telemundo’s Olympic programming, detailing the journey of Hispanic athletes on their quest for Olympic glory. Some of the top Hispanic hopefuls include Mexican diver and 2009 world champion Paola Espinosa, Cuban American multi-medal threat gymnast Daniel Leyva, Mexican American female boxer Marlén Esparza and Argentine NBA basketball player Manu Ginobili.

    SPECIALTY CHANNELS

    Specialty channels for basketball and soccer are available to cable, satellite and telco providers, and will total 770 hours of coverage. More information about these channels will be released soon.

    3D

    Panasonic Corporation of North America and the NBC Sports Group announced in January that they will partner to make the London 2012 Olympic Games available in 3D to all U.S. distributors who carry Olympic coverage on cable, satellite and telco -- nearly 100 percent of the multichannel industry. The effort will produce 242 hours of coverage and mark the first time that the Olympic Games will be distributed in the U.S. in 3D. Panasonic is NBC’s exclusive Flat-Panel HDTV and Blu-ray Disc Player advertiser for the London Olympic Games.

    Last year, Panasonic Corporation, a long time Official Worldwide Olympic Partner in the Audio and Visual Equipment category, announced it would partner with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and Olympic Broadcasting Services (OBS) to make the London 2012 Olympic Games the first ever 3D Olympic Games.

    The 3D broadcasts, which will be produced by OBS and shown on next-day delay, will span multiple competitions throughout the London 2012 Olympic Games, including the Opening and Closing Ceremonies, gymnastics, diving and swimming. OBS will produce more than 200 hours of 3D coverage during the London 2012 Olympic Games by utilizing Panasonic’s state-of-art 3D production technologies including the AG-3DP1, a P2HD professional fully-integrated twin-lens Full HD 3D camera recorder. Cable, satellite, and telco providers who receive the Olympics package may distribute the 3D broadcast via the Comcast Media Center.

    ^It gets better Skittl1321,

    NBC is saying they will be streaming all events live online

    BUT (and there is always a catch, it seems)

    If you are currently a cable or satellite TV subscriber, you will have FREE access to all digital Olympic coverage including: Live streaming events Full replays of events
    Q: How much does it cost to watch live streams on NBCOlympics.com?
    A: The live streams are free with a cable/telco/satellite subscription that includes CNBC and MSNBC.
    http://www.nbcolympics.com/liveextra/help/index.html

    Not quite free, really. I don't see anything about there being an option for folks who do not subscribe to cable/satellite to purchase access.


    I view over the air, so I'll either see if I can borrow my parents' info, watch a European stream for free or for a reasonable fee, or, at worst, sign up for cable for a month and then cancel.

    Right now the only TV listings on the NBC site are for Trials.

    The actual listings - hour by hour, day by day - are not up yet. Right now the schedule is for upcoming Olympic trials. It will be a few weeks before the schedule and descriptions are finalized.

    I'm sure you will be able to see the NBC listings once they are available. You will probably have to list your local NBC affiliate, but that's only so you get actual listings for your area.

    Right now I am using the schedules and results page - to get an idea of what will be on when.

    Lawdy that's a lot'o info! So basically, if you will not be able to watch any daytime coverage or live streaming due to at work, all the big time, major events will still be on the prime time coverage on tape delay? So stay off the internet if ya can't watch at all during the day, and don't wanna know the outcome of anything due to time difference?

    Type in your zip code and 'next' and it should give you a list of all providers in your zip code. Even if you don't have cable, just click the one closest to your area, and then pick your local NBC channel. See if that works .... worth a shot anyway. I just tried it that way and picked a provider that is actually not mine at all, and it did not ask me for any kind of confirmation info at all.

    Not sure if it can "tell" my internet is thru cable or not, but just play around with it and see what happens.

    I certainly tried....but since I don't have cable, and don't plan to subscribe JUST for the Olympic access, I'd rather miss out.

    Good grief, I'm going to need to invest in about 14 DVRs and 22 TiVos, and probably will need to break out the old VCR just to be able to catch everything.

    I'm doing it with 3 DVRs, and 2 hard drives. I hope to get just about everything. It gets even harder when you add in the Today Show stuff and Universal Sports.

    Glad to know I'm not the only person going all out for the Olympics. I think I had 5 cable boxes for Beijing, but I managed to get just about everything. Different strategy this time around since I'm relying more on my computer and attempted to record everything in HD. Hopefully I can make it through all 17 days! I've been recording Olympics going back to 1992, so A.H. Black is probably going to see a message from me fairly shortly.

    Definitely going to enjoy this thread. So excited that the Olympics are only a little over a month away!

    Recording in HD is more than I can handle. Good luck.

    If anyone is interested - NBC Sports is showing rowing and BMX trials today.

    Also glad I'm not the only one trying to record as much as possible during the Olympics! I have 3 hard drives and 2 DVD recorders ready to go--I'm hoping to get all of the NBC coverage and as much of the cable coverage as possible. I'm excited for the coverage to start--I think this is going to be NBC's best Olympic effort to date!

    I noticed track and field went overtime. Glad I plan for extra time. During the Olympics that's always an issue. Sometimes even the prime time show goes over by up to an hour.

    NBC has posted the Talent Roster for London - http://www.nbcumv.com/mediavillage/s...0907544308.xml

    Not many big changes in commentators. A couple that I noticed were -

    Terry Gannon is doing playbyplay for Rowing and Canoeing.

    Rulon Gardner is the analyst for wrestling - a change from Jeff Blatnik. I think I will miss Jeff. I still remember him from 1984.

    It looks to me like an awful lot of the commentating will be done from New York with video (like skating has been for the last few years) and not in person in London. Only on-site interviewers will actually be in London.

    I'm quite sure the "biggies" will still be in London - Swimming, Track and Field, Gymnastics. Looks like basketball will be a mix.


    On another note, I note Bob Costas is in Omaha for the Swimming Trials. I wonder if he will fly to San Jose for the Ladies Gymnastics or will he show via remote from Omaha.

    Yes, it can detect your IP and if you are accessing from a comcast.net IP you will automatically authenticate.

    Maybe I'm stoopid, but I can't find the following ... I want to see a time schedule of when the events are London time as they take place. Basically I want to make sure I can listen to my AM radio show 6-10a without hearing about any results. 10a for me would be 3p London time. Will medals events be taking place that early prior to 3p London time, or do they schedule final medal events according to evening time in the host city (if that made sense!).

    Not that I have to worry about NBC coverage but from what I saw of US Trials this week I'd be mightily pissed if they leave gymnasts routines offscreen just so they can do drama with the American gymnasts. Or in the trials case chacked certain gymnasts just so they could do shots of Weiber etc.

    Though I sympathise with trying to catch everything. I've come to the decision that I'll have no choice but to miss some sports. Especially since half of it is being shown while I'm asleep.

    This is how NBC always works. Lots of angst/drama/human interest mixed with a smattering of actual performances.
