    I believe they will be, but I don't know when that'll be happening.

    IIRC (and as referenced elsewhere on GS), NBCOlympics.com will provide a second daily feed of what they previously had streamed live.
    I think I recall that the second feed begins at 3 pm ET, but don't quote me. (Sorry, I don't remember where I saw that time.)

    As for NBC videos online, I don't know whether they will be available only to authenticated subscribers.

    NBCOlympics.com and the NBC Sports Live Extra app are the exclusive places to consume Olympic live streaming. The site will also feature exclusive content, real-time results, medal standings, event highlights and analysis, athlete interviews and profiles, and rewinds of all event coverage.

    ETA, I re-discovered the source for what I said above.

    Gary Zenkel: The answer is that we will restart all of those live feeds to the extent that you didn’t have the opportunity to view a life feed of a sport that may have happened very early in the U.S. day. We would start those at 3:00 p.m. each day, so giving people a second opportunity to watch those feeds no longer live, but offered them the same format.

    ...
    And then after it runs in prime time, then it’s available on demand?

    Gary Zenkel: Correct. It’ll be sliced up into highlight form and on demand and so.

    Thanks, guys! I have to say, I think the NBC Olympics site is really poorly designed.

    :( Although I don't have access to the streaming, I agree about the site in general.

    Yeah - Just downloaded the NBCSN app - it says 'Watch every event during the 2014 Winter Olympics LIVE for FREE'. Great for me But no!! It's only FREE if you have a PAID cable subscription (which I don't) and I have no broadcast reception (the wonders of digital TV). So no Olympics for me

    They mention the cable thing further down the page which is annoying because it's there but not in your face "MUST HAVE PAID CABLE")

    There is something SERIOUSLY wrong with the IOC if so many people in Europe cannot watch the biggest sporting event in the World.

    Well the problem with my laptop being new since London is that my old workaround for things won't work anymore because it's not compatible with Windows 8 yet. Grrr.

    No livestreaming Opening Ceremony I guess.

    I just checked the updated BBC Red Button listings.
    It looks like everything will be shown in the next week apart from the pairs short program.

    Do you know who they are? I watched the videos today. On ARD no Daniel Weiss, and on ZDF no Rudi Cerne. Hopefully this will change soon.

    That's great to hear.

    If anybody wants to watch the Opening Ceremony, the coverage has just started on BBC2 (with commentary) and BBCi1 (no commentary).

    For details of how to receive these channels, see the first post in this thread.

    Alternatively, you can watch on the livestream.

    Official BBC Livestreaming Channel

    Claire Balding is presenting, and comentating will be Hazel Irvine and our own Robin Cousins.

    They are currently doing introductions, interviews and pre-recorded reports. I assume the ceremony itself will start on the hour.

    Hi, longtime lurker here. Just wanted to post the channels that are airing the Opening Ceremonies for Latin America:

    ESPN

    Fox Sports 1

    Fox Sports 2

    Claro Sports


    All channels are airing the Opening Ceremonies live, with Claro Sports streaming it on their YouTube channel (their coverage has just started) and I believe Fox Sports is also going to be livestreaming it on their website. ESPN Play for Latin America will also be streaming it. Don't know if the coverage will be geoblocked for those outside of Latin America.

    p.s. Claro Sports is interviewing Michelle Kwan right now

    I got CBC's stream to work.

    Still annoyed at NBC for not streaming the opening ceremony.

    I'm channel zapping between the Dutch, British, and German public channels, which will all air the ceremony (right now the Dutch channel is just boring blabla, though, so German it is!).

    Fudge! GeoBlocked on CBC and BBC for living in the US! Anyone have the Russian or other feeds for the Opening Ceremonies?
