Re: Events are LIVE on NBCOlympics.com
said by FFH:But this just begs the question, why should NBC care if people have a pay TV subscription or not in order to watch live events that would be rebroadcast later OTA at zero cost to the viewer?
The online access is available to dozens of pay TV cable/telco/sat companies.
I understand that from a business perspective NBC can sell access to Games coverage any way it sees fit, but from a practical perspective, my cynical side sees it as a way to give people an "incentive" to sign up for such a service. Comcast just happens to be one beneficiary of that.
I liked a previous poster's suggestion to pay for VPN access to a box in the UK and then stream the BBC's coverage. If I was more interested in the games, that would definitely be an option I would consider. I'm not signing back up for Cable TV just to watch the Games live.
