    NBC Streaming Commentators

    Please forgive my ignorance. I am watching the Figure Skating on NBC Olympics and was wondering who did the commentary for the team competition. I never heard them identify themselves and couldn't find this elsewhere. Thanks to anyone who can help answer my question.

    If your talking about what I think you are talking about, the man is Robin Cousins and I don't know the woman's name but I assume she is British though she sounds maybe Aussie to me.

    It might be a crazy thought but she sounded like Jane Torvill to me...

    If it's Robin Counsins, it was the BBC commentary (and I suspect NBC was streaming the BBC stream because I was streaming Team day 1 and they were definitely British).

    According to Googling, it was someone named Sue Barker

    There appear to be two different streams: one with British commentators and one with Johnny, Tara, and Terry. I have no idea why--I find it very strange. I'm enjoying Johnny, Tara, and Terry a lot.

    I think NBC may have been sharing the BBC stream for some of the events, which may allot for the difference.

    I am surprised how much I'm enjoying Johnny and Tara (NEVER a fan of her). The night crew is horrible with Scott Hamilton shrieking and neither he nor Sandra seem to be up to date on codes and recognizing jumps. Only issue with J/T combo is how much fawning over Tara is done by Terry.

    Something like that. Nick Carvel just tweeted a link to the stream with Johnny, Tara, and Johnny: http://stream.nbcolympics.com/nbcsn-...?nid=13733_224

    I don't know if that's accessible on the app though.

    Oh, that may be. That's a shame.
