    Slingbox works very well. It also works on your tablet - again, provided you have wifi that is streaming quality.

    Emma, I'm a DISH user and I don't know if I get it or not. I know I pay a LOT and feel I should get every channel. Lol

    Thanks, waxel! It's on my to-do list to call DISH and figure this out; I think I just found Universal sports (but they too might have multiple channels, so I have a lot to figure out). If I learn anything useful, I'll let you know!

    I'm housesitting and they have dish network and unless I'm missing it I have not seen the NBCSports channel... they DO have universal sports (only one channel, they don't have multiple channels), though.

    I believe it's channel 159. We had it but we dropped down our package and don't have it anymore.

    Plugged that in to check and didn't see it pop up - so the folks I'm sitting for must not have it either... It's automatic with the package we have with DirecTV, though. (Unfortunately Universal Sports is not. )

    On my Dish, 159 is NBCSP (the P is the part that I'm concerned about). the channel seems to be called NBC Sports....but I'm just worried that NBCSN might be a different one. I still haven't called to check...On my Dish, the Universal channel I have is around 400 (maybe 401 or 402).

    Forgive my ignorance, but does this mean that unless you are a cable subscriber you can't watch the Olympics?

    Allow me to clarify: I am in Mexico. I do not have cable, but I doubt very much that Mexican cable would be broadcasting figure skating anyway (although I will look into it...was never interested in cable before). So is there ANY WAY that I will be able to view the Olympics?

    Yes - channel 159 on Dish Network is NBC Sports Network. It is included with their America's Top 250 and America's "Everything" packages. Unfortunately it is neither included with the main package we have (America's Top 200) nor with their Multi-Sport Pack (which we got just to get Universal Sports).

    if you have NBC you will still get the Olympics. you do not need to have cable, at least not in the USA. I'm not sure about Mexico's coverage.

    Thanks, Tonichelle. I pick up American NBC through an antenna because I live literally within a few miles of the US. I have greatly enjoyed watching the Grand Prix series this way. So I was distressed when I saw this thread, thinking that I would miss seeing the Olympics since it won't be possible for me to get this new "NBCSN" channel in my country. I found during the last Olympics that I was also blocked online from viewing many Universal Sports videos. I often get the message, "This content is not available in your country."

    If Icenetwork.com would allow me to subscribe, I would gladly pay the fee. I can't understand why only people in the US can use their streaming services.

    I saw on the ISU Forum that someone mentioned TVTeka; however, it seems that the broadcast will be during the day when I'm at work. Does anyone know whether or not any of the Olympic coverage will be available on Youtube later on?

    Isn't that what this thread is answering? (in any case, yes it will be.)

    And if you have a smart tv, and your tablet has the ability to push to it, the slingbox stuff can be shown on your tv

    If you have a dumb tv with an hdmi input port, and a tablet with an output port, you can also display your slingbox stuff on your tv.

    If you have a dumb tv and a tablet with no output port, but it does have the ability to connect to a smart tv, you can buy a Netgear push2tv, and again, this works.


    this stuff is getting better over time
