They said prime time live.  Not everything.  You couldn't air Saturday afternoon in live because it's 14 hours ahead.

Doesn't really matter though because nobody cares about the Olympics.  Instead, all of America is geared -up to watch the NASCAR Powershares QQQ 300.

Why couldn't you air it live. I bet you BBC will have half a dozen channels devoted to airing everything live.

As for why Saturday afternoon is tape delayed, because there are no events at 3am.

As for this particular curling matchup is tape delayed on CNBC at midnight, it's not airing on BBC, but it is streaming on NBC and BBC along with BBC Red Button... which is streaming On Demand.

Did not know it starts tonight, I heard the Opening Ceremonies were on Friday and memorized that bit.
Totally forgot they do have events before the opening ceremony. Thanks subby

... after the shiat-tier streaming performance shown by the NBC App during the Superb Owl, I'm not sure I'll be able to watch the Olympics without having to endure constant interruptions and broken audio

Because NBC knows FARK ALL about delivering Live HD Streaming on a massive scale. They should hand it over to Youtube or Amazon
 
2018-02-07 10:49:35 AM  
so the competition starts before the opening ceremonies?   Time travel is weird.

That happens at the Summer Olympics too. A few things kick off the morning of the opening ceremony.

Kinda bummed about the time zone thing this year. One of my favorite things about the Olympics is streaming live events at work.
 
2018-02-07 11:30:16 AM  
NBC better hurry, hard and freeze on that nibbler at the back of the house. If they can't peel the guard while keeping the shooter, they'll only score one and you never want to go home, down, without the hammer.

Totally. I remember four years ago, I had the USA-Canada women's hockey gold medal match on while teaching a class. Of course, the one Canadian girl in my class knew exactly what had happened when I grimaced while looking at the computer screen.

NBC has wrecked the olympics since 2010, when they shoved a 3 hour delay onto Western US, when the olympics were taking place in Vancouver BC, 200 miles up the road from Seattle.

Thankfully, CBC existed on most household cable systems in Seattle, and we got some relief from NBCs horrifically bad, smug, personality-driven, self-serving and three-hour-delayed, mindlessly stupid in the social media age coverage.

NBC is stupid and bad. At least Matt effing Lauer won't be involved, but that just means another 20 hours a day of the re-animated corpse of Bob Costas.

I don't know what the intent of your post was but of course I don't give a shiat about the Olympics. Why should I? No, really, why should I care about who's country produces the person who can skate down a mountain the fastest? And NASCAR, a 21 year old with an Xbox....it doesn't matter.

...but curling. That's some funny shiat.

Actually, Costas isn't doing the Olympics anymore. Mike Tirico is now the prime time host.

olympics is about human interest stories, not sports.  duh

it takes time to produce those segments so they have to delay the broadcasts
 
2018-02-07 06:25:24 PM  
IF you have cable, you can sign in here: www.nbcolympics.com, and watch it live.

Either way, HELLO ALL!!

I have missed you guys!!

Also, this round of curling is MIXED DOUBLES.  The US team is a Brother/Sister combo.

You might want to read up on it, as it is a new Olympic sport, and there are rule changes.

You must be young cause I can remember NBC booching the Olympics since the late 70's.
Spending more time on athlete profiles than showing any competitions, or only showing the American runs in a competition.

To be clear, the rules are different enough from standard curling that the CBC just put up a rules graphic and the hosts said they'd be explaining some things as the game went on.  Let that sink in, the CBC felt the need to explain a form of curling to CANADIANS.

No, the Olympics started yesterday, when the trophy for the High Jump was retired for a helluva long time.

It was XNXX, if you must know

Also, are all the Korean teams unifies, or just the women's ice hockey?
I would pay extra to the see North Koreans snap & start throwing stones at their teammates

Just the hockey. They're the lowest ranked team in the tournament so they're not gaining much

It's still kind of funny watching them have to throw the rock, then immediately sprint after it and do the sweeping themselves.

Both Canada and Norway are trying to figure out the ice.  Canada up 1-0 after the first end.

He's a really good third. Very hit and miss as a skip. I hope he doesn't out think some of their shots.

Mistake by Canada, took a stone out too early.  Canada's thrown rock removed, house reset.

Are the announcers really quiet on stream or is it just mine?
