Thread: Olympic coverage

  1. #1

    Default Olympic coverage

    For some reason, I think this has been asked and answered but I can't find it. Does anyone know how or if we can watch the Olympics? Regular television coverage sucks for the sport. I see that flo has it marked under their coverage but I don't know if it will be full matches or just highlights.

    I have heard that every Olympic event will be fully ocvered. I can't remember where I saw that, but I am assuming that mostly means webcasts for wrestling. Last Olympics shows all the of the amtches live on the web.

    I am sure Flo does not have any rights to broadcast live events and will their coverage will be only things like interviews.

    If NBC was as strict as they were with Olympic Trials coverage I don't think our good ol' floboys are be gonna be giving us any live wrestling for us outside of twitter. The powers that be have been working hard the past couple olympics to have full coverage of every sport, it is gonna be buggy and frustrating but we should be able to watch all matches online.

    Last Olympics I thought the online coverage was great. I did not have high speed access at the time so I parked in the parking of the our town library and watched the matches live.

    NBCOlympics.com will have everything. Neither Flo, USAW or anyone else can post highlights or matches. NBC owns it and they put their stamp on it pretty good.

    Will the matches be archived on the Fila site or anywhere else? I like going back and re watching.

    Last Olympics Filawebtv had all the matches, just took a while for them to show up.

    I am staying with my inlaws who have sattelite, but know nothing about American Tv. Should I be looking on NBC or where? Also does anyone have a competition schedule with times as well as dates?
