View Full Version : NBC Stream and TV for tennis: Live or not?

I'm aware that NBC will be showing tennis matches both on their online stream and on TV, but they are confusing the HECK out of me. I'm wondering if the televised matches are on tape delay while the stream is live? Or do they both show the same matches, live or not.

Also they give you huge time blocks for which tennis will be shown. Are they going to show ALL of tennis or alternate between different sporting events?

i would think it's live based on the time slots.

They show matches at 7:30pm PT which is about 10:30 am China time the next day. Which seems about when they would start play for the day.

however some blocks say live (ET/CT)so iono. But it would be weird for them to show taped tennis while live tennis was being played on an online stream.

however for the telecast on USA from 11pm - 4:30 am pt i wouldn't be surprised if they showed taped tennis.

Well I wouldn't hold your breath on extensive coverage of tennis for the Olympics. Tennis will be shown on USA, Oxygen, and MSNBC it seems. But it doesn't seem like it'll be much coverage from the tv listing at NBCOlympics.com

Manatee, where can you get the TV and stream schedule for these matches? The one on nbcolympics is just showing time blocks of 4-8 hours... :o

select show all i.e. both tv and online listings
and then under sports select tennis and then just pick the day you want and it'll list all the tv and online listings for tennis for that day. Coverage starts Saturday night.
