    Does anyone else think the coverage of the Olympics by NBC is a disgrace. The biggest sporting event in the world and they are not showing it live. I'm not american, but here right now, and was looking forward as always to watching, but while the rest of the world (and i mean every single other country regardless of timezone) are watching another brilliant performance by Usain Bolt, here in america you watch a repeat 7 hours later. It's disgracful and disguisting.


    Thank god for VPN and european tv.

    Yeah it has been terrible; I would've thought that since the 100m finals is the highlight of the olympics they would at the very least show it live but they chose to show a replay of Equestrian instead...

    With so many events going on, not to mention the six hour time difference between London and NYC, I can't blame NBC for tape delays. What aggravates me is that at least 90% of the coverage is recorded. Clearly the folks at Comcast haven't figured out social media can play spoiler.

    I suppose then it will be virtually impossible to get any coverage of the paralympics?

    Unless it's online, yes.
