Just watched a preview of the feature stories Mary Carillo will be doing over the next 2 weeks. This could be really good. Bog-snorkling?
- New announcer Michelle Beadle - on the sports desk at NBSN - so far I really like her. Well spoken and a good interviewer.
Ok, so apparently NBC is NOT showing the Opening Ceremonies live online tomorrow; it's only on Primetime. *fume*
So, now I need an alternate online feed to watch! I've downloaded HotSpot Shield and will attempt to get on the BBC feed, if one exists. Does anyone know? If I end up not being able to watch this live tomorrow, I will tear this place up, lol.
I know that I'm going to try to snag a live stream from outside the USA somehow. I don't have cable, can barely bring in NBC with my antenna.
Hopefully I'll find a way. I'm not happy at all with NBC limiting live stream (or even archived videos) only to those who pay for TV.
I wasn't around much during beijing so I don't know what we normally do but are we going to do NBC broadcast threads for the ceremonies/prime time so those who haven't been spoiled can chat?
i am unspoiled and very bitter about the addition of ryan seacrest
I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!
Anyone else having trouble getting videos to load in the NBC Live Extra app for iPad? How quickly do they load? I just get the spinning loading square.
I've been able to watch on the iPad app though I am preferring the website because it seems like I can rewind/fast forward the streams a lot easier on the computer.
Why isn't it working for me?! I have the app because I can't be on the computer. My wi-fi is working. I just deleted it from my iPad and am reinstalling. It worked fine for podium training. It's really pissing me off.
ETA Well hitting the x on the app didn't work. Logging out didn't work. I just get that stupid square. Ugh! I just want it to work! It worked fine earlier in the week. :
ETA2 Works on my Android phone. Stupid iPad.

I thought we got live streaming of every event. If Dressage is still going on, why can't I access it? Is there intermission with equestrian events?
Yay! The iPad app is working now. Not that anyone cares but thanks for letting me vent.
It's just frustrating that NBC has barely ANYTHING for us online even though the main NBC channel with primetime stuff is OTA.
Is NBC having tech difficulties or is my TV going wacky?
Both options come with a free 1-week trial, so you could even use both and be set for the Olympics and not have to pay anything.
Does anyone think that Bob Costas is the new Dick Clark? As in, ageless in a creepy way?
Seriously, man. I remember him being a fairly good looking guy back in, oh, 1988, when he first did this Olympics ringmaster thing. Some 25 years later and. . . he looks frighteningly similar. Whether it's makeup or plastic surgery or a combination, it's scary.
Also, last night, hubby was commenting on how all the commentators' eyes had a glint in them. Sure enough, when I looked, they all had a glint in them, like there was a light right in front of each commentator. Which couldn't have been the case as they were all in different venues. He contends they were added post-production.
BARK LESS. WAG MORE.
