Re: $7 VPS turned into a VPN to share is cheaper than cable sub

And you can keep it after the Olympics and torrent TV shows through it, or watch BBC shows on the iPlayer.

Not only that... But to be honest i'm just stunned that at this point in time they didn't just keep the rights to themselves for online streaming, and streamed every different event for themselves at the same time for free, and just have sponsors pick up the tab.
And if they are incapable of handling the load, just have companies that can do it for them as long as they meet their requirements.

I know i'd much rather watch this on something like youtube, justin.tv, ustream or anything like that than from NBC or any other countries national TV station.
And as soon as the internet becomes truly ubiquitous everyone will prefer to watch it like that.

It is not thievery. As a matter of fact, many Americans can pull the Canadian signals OTA, and prefer to watch CTV instead.

If that's "thievery" as the previous poster claims, this must be akin to Canada invading the United States.

If someone puts up a satellite antenna (I mean a real one, not those little pie plates), they can watch the feed from any country whose satellites are in range. Is that "theivery"?

If not, how is using the internet to watch the same content "thievery"?

Not a chance that they would recover what they make by selling the rights to each of the individual countries for local streaming. Plus it gets the IOC off the hook for having to deal with the technical issues and inevitable backlash against broadcasters when something goes wrong.

How is it thievery? The BBC is streaming it free... I can't get the NBC Olympics website to let me view it here. Plus NBC sucks always switching midstream and teh stupid commentators always talking over things.. Shit I wanted to listen to the Deaf drummer.. Not Matt telling me how she has been deaf since birth and feels the music.

That person has been on a hyperbole role of BS for quite some time now.

The reason NBC is delaying broadcast is so they can cut it off when some terrorist or other major thing happens and the world won't be able to see it, is my guess.

They also have a delay, in case of uniform "malfunction". In certain games, uniforms will be tugged and pulled and certain things shown, that over here is illegal to air. Thanks to the puritan views of Americans and the FCC. God forbid if a naked breast is shown on broadcast TV, or a Butt cheek. We wouldn't want to send thousands of families to life long therapy.

I recall after the China Olympics, pictures circulating of what NBC "chopped" out of the broadcast. Water polo can get interesting, with the way players tug on each other's uniforms and such.
