Anybody know if there is or where I might begin to try to find a live stream for the Women's Super G? NBC is a bastard and won't broadcast it live even though they're already planning to broadcast the olympics while the event is going on.
OT - live stream for W's Super G?
I haven't been able to find one. NBC does have a live stream of the competitors times as they are taking place including intermediate times.
Doesn't NBC realize that by delaying it they're just removing all the suspense from the prime time broadcast? This isn't Atlanta in '96 where everybody was clueless as to the results until whenever NBC decided to show them.
NBC is totally taking all the enjoyment out of the games. We have an olympics in our continent whereby we can watch events live without having to get up at 4 in the morning and instead they tape delay it until 8 at night. NBC coverage sucks.
Last weekend, ATDHE.net and ChannelSurfing.net had links for each sport. I didn't see them when I checked today. Try here too:
Mancuso in first for now. Still a lot to go.
It's on NBC a week from Thursday.
you can watch the live stream on the video on nbcsports or msn at nbc sports.
NBC considers these premium streams subject to having a paid comcast cable (or other) account. So unless you already have cable, the online streams are not accessible. It's really frustrating since the Olympics are supposed to be about openness and the sport. Not this crap about primetime only. I would be more than willing to pay per stream for events given the choice to do so.
Don't tell NBC you'd be willing to pay for streams. They'd be more than happy to start charging for web content, rather than just giving it only to cable subscribers. NBC needs to follow the lead of CTV and provide lots of free live streaming events rather than walling it off, be it a pay wall or a cable/satellite subscriber wall.
Let's hope they bring back Triplecast - that definitely wasn't a disaster
for people stuck on the west coast, use stream torrent off of the myp2p forums. actv is broadcasting live from the east coast.
Vonn in 2nd, Mancuso in 6th.
Does www.ctvolympics.ca work in the US? It's on live there.
Now Vonn is in 3rd. Still about 15 left.
If it wasn't for the ten glorious years of Jennifer Aniston in her prime they gave me, I would boycott NBC until the day I die due to this travesty.
There is one other interesting bit of programming on NBC every other September, too. (Well, it wasn't that interesting in 2008, but it was must-see TV in '06.)
Sorry guys, I just watched the first 30 so the race is pretty much over, a pretty crappy stream today, but I usually attribute that to being a women's event (all the men's alpine events have had flawless streams when I've watched them).
If you want to stream the races, go to either atdhe.net, stream2watch.com, or fromsport.com . Between the three of those I can usually find a suitable stream. Congrats to Vonn today on her bronze medal. I'm looking forward to the men's super combi tomorrow.
