    Why isn't nbcolympics.com not live streaming the opening ceremonies? They are showing most everything else.

    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

    NBCOlympics.com said it would be showing all competitions. And TBA whether it will stream the Closing Ceremony.

    And what are the thoughts behind not streaming the ceremony live when you do all the sports live, why can’t people have that opportunity to see that?

    MARK LAZARUS: This is a ceremony, it’s a pageant, it’s a theater show – it is not a competition, and as such we think putting Matt and Meredith there, and putting the context to explain the history and tradition and culture, that’s going to be part of a better viewing experience. We’re looking to maximize viewing experience for our audiences… it is as simple as that. We think putting a big stadium streamed event, of which we’re taking largely a host feed, would not provide an audience with the full pageantry that the opening ceremonies deserves. We really believe that we want to put context to it, and that’s very important to us. We want to expose this in a way, and with the full pageantry that it deserves. ...Would it cut into viewing? I don’t know. Our research shows that many things, putting things online drives viewership later. We will definitely put some snippets of it out throughout the day, we’re not going to ignore it…we’re not going to ignore it like it didn’t happen.

    And that will be the same for the closing ceremony as well?

    MARK LAZARUS: Undetermined at this point. If you remember, in London we chose to stream the closing ceremonies, and we likely are leaning that way now. The closing ceremonies is much more of a party than a theatrical performance, and we think that that’s easier to express there.

    So instead of letting Americans decide whether or not we can understand the context (or maybe just wanted to watch the pretty people walking), they force us to watch it in primetime? Woooooooo.

    Thankfully I was able to get access elsewhere.

    Strictly an FYI (I am neither defending nor condemning NBC):

    NBC will broadcast its taped coverage of the Opening Ceremony twice tonight.

    • 7:30 p.m. – 11:30 p.m. Opening Ceremony
    • 1:05 a.m. – 5 a.m. Primetime Encore [I think the intended meaning is "Encore of Primetime"]

    Oh, I know they're airing it. But their reasons for not streaming it live as well as airing in Primetime are stupid. Especially considering other major broadcasters like CBC and BBC did air it live.

    Again, I'm neither defending nor condemning NBC.

    ETA:
    That said, I am interested to hear David Remnick's commentary on NBC. I do think that he will add value. YMMV.

    Was just letting anyone who cares (unlike you ) know that broadcast audiences have not one, but two, opportunities to see the taped coverage.

    And about time too! The Beeb should have done that years ago!

    YIPPEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    At least this will make things a lot easier checking the listings, etc. Whatever type of Freeview box you have, the EPG never seems as good or easy to use as the SkyGuide.

    I just hope this isn't a temporary thing for the Olympics, and that they will stay on the EPG...

    Depending on NBC's streaming/TV stuff I can see, I may be a partial Canadian.
