    NBCOlympics is apparently livestreaming every single event even if it's not on a TV channel.

    And BBC America is pretty good quality if it's similar to London 2012, with ExPat Shield (which seems to work pretty well)

    I'm in Switzerland and I can't get access to the streaming on NBC or BBC. Help!

    For NBC, you have to have a cable provider unfortunately.

    For BBC, look through the thread. The necessary VPN has been referenced a few times.

    After copying the details for BBCi1 and pasting them in for BBCi2, I remembered to change the satellite tuning details, but forgot to change the Freeview number! Oops!

    I've fixed that now, though. And I've added in the details for BBC1, just in case they start showing Olympic stuff. I think most of the TV coverage is going to be on BBC2 and BBCi, but they might put stuff on BBC1 at the weekends like they do with other sports.

    Thank you again

    So on Sky I can only access the Winter Olympic coverage on BBC, then by pressing the Red Button & getting two extra BBCi Channels ?.
    That's a shame as two years ago the BBC gave us extra channels by numbers too, so we did not have to go through the Red Button when watching London 2012.
    I think they were after the Eurosport channels on Sky.
    I wonder how much of the figure skating will be shown on those two extra channels ?.

    can any non-German check if it's geoblocked?
    Sorry if it is - the German commentator is a catastrophy, if it's any consolation

    It tells me the German for "Currently no live stream available" so I think yes.

    Holy green shirt, PBP.

    This is probably a really stupid question, but NBC is going to post the videos online for the events after they're done, right? I mean, they won't just be streaming live?

    I get the message "Dieser Inhalt ist aus rechtlichen Gründen nur in Deutschland abrufbar" and no picture. Guessing that means it is geoblocked from the UK.

    After Saturday, if the Freeview EPG listings are reliable, there's going to be very little Figure Skating on the TV, I'm afraid.

    So, we're going to be relying on the internet streams.

    Yeah, it was great when we had all the extra feeds WITH EPG NUMBERS on Sky for the Summer Games. They were on Channel 450 onwards.

    But, the BBC aren't getting enough money out of us through the Licence Fee, and so can't afford to pay for these extra feeds to be carried on satellite.

    Really wish the EBU still had the rights, as it would be better coverage for all the viewers if Eurosport and ALL the Public Service Broadcasters in Europe (not just the ones that can afford to pay for it) had access to the Olympics.

    I'm wording it like that because the EBU member for Ireland, RTÉ, are not showing these Olympics at all. Sure, the people "Down South" can watch BBC NI, but I'm not sure that they can get the BBCi channels (which is what today's skating is on) or the BBC's internet streams.

    Let's hope that the contract with the rights management company gets cancelled, and the contract is given back to the EBU before Pyeongchang...

    Unfortunately, I doubt that will happen.
