#NBCFail

Posted: 07/30/2012 by goodie in news

Over this last weekend, we watched a lot of the Olympic coverage on NBC. Unfortunately, NBC has dropped the ball as far as live coverage for the Western United States is concerned. Not one event that we watched this weekend was LIVE as it happened. All aired events were tape delayed about 8 hours. At some point during the weekend, NBC was posting on their social network pages the results prior to the West Coast feed. To add to the mess, there is no free online live stream of the events. You must have a major cable provider to stream any of the events and the Opening Ceremonies were not streamed at all! All of these issues have enraged many people who think the monetization of the Olympics by NBC is an awful thing and it has brought forth the new hashtag #NBCFail
