Some Olympics Information

If you live in the U.S., then NBC will be your primary access to the Olympic games. Every single event will be live streamed on NBC’s website, but you mast have the NBC channels as part of your cable package (and use your log-in with that provider to log-in to the live stream). If you are going to trust the illegal streams available, just know that their quality can widely vary.

Regardless if you are going to stream from NBC or not, you can see the entire schedule of what events are on each day at the NBC live stream schedule. You can see what events will be on any given day, but you can also select a specific sport and see what day and time it is on.

THIS MEANS THAT YOU SHOULDN’T ASK WHEN A SPECIFIC EVENT IS BECAUSE IT’S READILY AVAILABLE. We’ll be posting about various events, especially weightlifting, on Facebook and Twitter. Some stories will show up on this website as well, but faster updates will be available on Twitter (the recent tweets can be seen on the left side bar). Next week will be busy (with raw nationals) so rely on the social media. There have already been some new updates that include Ryan Seacrest and Carson Daly being gigantic poons who don’t lift.

If you live in the UK, or use a VPN software, you can stream the BBC coverage of the Olympics (I think it’s free to do so). Australians and Canadians: feel free to submit local streaming choices in the comments and I’ll add them here.

  1. Ugh, I didn’t realize you need a cable subscription to stream. I cut the cord a year ago and don’t miss cable (thank you, Netflix streaming!), but the Olympics is a bummer. Probably will camp out at my neighborhood bar.

  2. CTV and their affiliates will be showing the Olympics here in Canada.

    The TV Schedule’s kind of crappy. Not sure what kind of live streaming they will have.

    On July 31st we can watch the Men’s 69kg in Punjabi on ATN, but none of the stations will be showing the Women’s 63kg even though Canada may have a decent chance for a medal with Christine Girard.

    On Aug 7th I’ll be watching the Men’s 105+kg at 2PM in Punjabi at work.

    My boss is going to think I’m nuts.

  3. Longtime reader, sometimes poster. Hate to spam the page, but given Justin’s previous military-related posts and the military-friendly nature of this page I thought it wouldn’t be too obtrusive.

    I’m interning with and we’re sponsoring Albie Masland as he runs across the US to raise money for the Travis Manion Foundation, a charity founded by the parents of a USNA classmate of mine who was killed in Iraq in 2007. Albie started near San Diego in mid-March and is now in Zanesville, Ohio, due to finish in Washington DC on August 18.

    You can follow his progress here: or on Twitter at @OpAmerithon.
    We’d appreciate any kind of support from anyone in the community–obviously financial support for the charity is great, but after 2,500+ miles of solo running Albie is happy just to have someone give him a high-five along the way, join him for a few miles, or have dinner with him when he stops for the night. Also, if you’ve got any contacts in the media who would be willing to do a story on him, please let me know.

    Thanks for reading this far, and if you’ve got any questions about Amerithon, the TMF, or B2B feel free to send them my way.
