Re: Can you pay for NBC olympics?

If you're in Canada you get tennis livestreaming on cbc.ca !

19. In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.

It didn't let me either at first and I am in the US. You have to trick it in order to view it.

Where it asks for your Zip code put in 02124

It will then ask you to select your calbe provider chose Comcast Digital. That should work that's what I did. I am in NY but I told it I was in MA and it worked. Just try it. You might get lucky

First, it's free. Second, you can watch what ever you want. They have coverage of everything. You can also watch up to four video feeds on one screen

Its really annoying to hear about one event over and over again,the hype on Phelps will overshadow other deserving atheletes who should be seen by viewers who dont like swimming or beach volleyball...they are force feeding us Phelps and beach volley ,its really a turn off.Our french channel shows everything...almost every discipline bravo RDS

No. You don't have to pay for NBCOlympics. I know a British poster on here who was able to watch the livestreams on the website. When it asked for the zip code, she typed in "90210" because that's the only US zip code she knew. And, it worked.

You can't pay to receive coverage of NBC's livestream. You can, however, try to obtain the NBC TV channels through satellite/cable - ask your provider.

I'm not talking about NBC or the other networks. I'm talking about the LIVE STREAM the thread starter was speaking of. On the live stream you can chose from 34 event's to watch. If you happen to miss the one you want, they have something called rewind where you can watch the one you missed.

For sure the "Media" may be advertising Phelps a great deal but you don't have to watch him on the live stream if you don't want to.

You have to trick it...I had to. I live in NY but Cablevision is not a corporate partner so it denied me. I put in 07302 and chose Comcast Cable as my provider and it worked....

Will you be there?
