    Yes you will! Online and on mobile. As long as you have cable subscription credentials you can stream every minute LIVE from Russia. Comcast even auto-authenticated if you were in home on a Comcast ISP. I would anticipate more MSOs working on this type of technology and collaborating with NBC by Sochi to have it implemented.

    At least he's warning you. I've met Brian Williams through my line of work. He's a nice guy. He won't be offended if you mute him and look away.

The very real concern is that it'll be London 2012 all over again....only worse, now it'll be showing events 8-9 hours after they've happened and the results will be all over the internet and practically impossible to avoid.

    I live on the west coast in the US and it didn't matter that Vancouver was in the same time zone NBC still tape delayed most of the best events for prime time so Russia being 11 hours ahead here won't really matter. I will need to stay off the internet more so i don't see the spoilers.

    Do we know for sure that NBC will offer to show the Olympics live on the internet again for those people who get TV through a cable company? I didn't sign up until the second week in London but it was great to actually watch the Olympics live for once. I got to watch all the big events in track and field live.

    Wait ... you mean they would stream LIVE the entire skating as it happens INCLUDING the "Top Dogs" NBC intends on showing during the prime-time broadcast? I never bothered checking out the live stream stuff during 2012 O's because I figured they would block anything they intended to show during prime time broadcast anyway. I just stayed off the internet to avoid results.

    Except I don't have a cable subscription.....too poor.
    According to Charlie Brown, there are three things you can't help but stare at: a babbling brook, a crackling fire and a Zamboni clearing the ice.

    Yes, they showed everything....I was able to watch a few of the gymnastics events live with a free 4 hour pass that was available to non-cable subscribers.

    I just got an email from Ice Network telling me my credit card had been charged for my subscription. Now if only my Skate America tickets would come.

    So excited to get the $25 rate as a USFS member. I skipped icenetwork (and fsu) last year due to finances, and both were major mistakes. I don't get NBC reliably, so I had almost no skating all last year.

    ...and IceNetwork went and charged last year's card instead. Had to request a refund, and speak with an account specialist so I can get the $39.99 price when I repurchase. Ugh.

    Straight from the horses mouth. Thursday, IceNetwork debuts a newly formatted website and a new video player.
    There is nothing more captivating in this world than a woman's form gracing the ice in skating boots. It's simply sensational!

    Thursday as in TODAY, August 22, 2013.

    Straight from the horses mouth: "Just so you know we are rolling out the new site over a few days. Most of it is going out now. But since the new format is radically different, some of the archival video pages, etc, won’t be back online until next week. All items should be fully launched by the end of next week."

    I just went on there. Is the idea to make it more mobile-friendly/easier to load? Heh. It took several minutes to load the home page and when I clicked on one of the page links, I had a black screen for so long I gave up. I wonder if it's because I have an older version of IE (8, which is not really that old) here at work. If that's it, maybe I can convince IT to let me upgrade. No Firefox or Chrome here.

    I just noticed they have Nebelhorn listed. I don't know if it will be live or on demand only.

    I see they did away with the forums on the IN. Also i don't see any way to watch old videos from the last few US Nationals. It looks like those are gone too. Oh wait i just the read the comment from Visaliakid about the archival pages being up next week.

    Not happy. I could not get the schedule page to even load, even when logged in.

    What browser did you use? I had no trouble in Firefox.

    I tried both Firefox & IE9.
    In both cases, when clicking on Schedule/Results, I get a Page is unavailable; try again later message.

    If I go to icenetwork.com, it takes me to a new home page where the Schedule + Results link does not work.

    If I go to http://web.icenetwork.com/events/schedule.jsp, it takes me to an old version of the site on the 2012 schedule. From there I can click on the Complete Event Schedule tab and find the listings by month for 2013 and 2014.

    I think the point is that the new site isn't ready yet and you need to take a backdoor route to get to the old site.
