Lest you wonder, the background/context for the post that you quoted:
When the OP started this thread on Dec 17, the original title was: "NBCSN to show COMPLETE Olympic Figure Skating LIVE on TV."
The post of mine that you quoted above also was from Dec 17 -- and one of its purposes was to politely correct the misperception (re "complete" skating) in the original thread title.
Unfortunately, the misperception has persisted. Tonight (Feb 1), someone started a thread in Olympics subforum asking why NBCSN had no Thursday listing.
To other NBCSN viewers:
I guess this is unprecedented having ALL skating programs covered on-air?! Luckily DISH has Universal Sports and NBCSN - but yes, it costs dearly.
This may seem an ignorant question, and I'm not even completely sure how to word it, but I am wondering how you plan to watch? Do you plan to watch all the programs on NBCSN? Or watch some on NBCSN and then switch to the NBC pre-packaged telecast?
I assume you could watch it all on NBCSN and know who wins SP, LP and the medals. I'm just wondering if doing so might not be as exciting as watching the NBC show with all the bells and whistles? Naturally prime time will likely air only the final flight (or final two at most). As of now, I'm going to watch Saturday on NBCSN then also watch the prime time telecast and see what I like better. Maybe a mix of both?
Again, I know this may be a bizarre question, but I'm wondering if anyone else has thought about it??
I'm gonna watch it live and on prime time. I don't think that will be enough so I'll probably have to watch all the performances on YouTube in between and for days following. I've already put in at work for the 19th and 20th off so I'll have more than enough time! Feel free to judge me.
Long time member & lurker. I'm shy I guess. For anyone with DirectTV, it's channel 220. So excited to know I have this channel and can watch in HD, unlike Universal Sports. And I plan to watch both, live & prime time!
I even got Saturday morning off from work so i can see all the competition. Now i just need to figure out how to get off work early Sunday morning.
I got my lovely dad to give me access to his DirecTV account.....so I can watch the internet streaming on my iPad and on my computer. YAY!
That said, I still love watching prime time coverage....there's always something interesting. And it's a chance to watch sports I might not be interested in watching in real time.
The timing couldn't be better for some events. I can actually catch some of it before work and during lunch..
