She would have to restrain herself too much for the "launguage issues"
ALWAYS record the Olympics. ALWAYS watch on delay and FF thru massive commercials.
I thought the commercial load on NBC on either Saturday or Sunday night was horrendous. I made that same comment in one of the Olympic threads around here. They came as often as every five minutes as someone else noted.
Last night seemed much better - I was wondering where the commercials were!
If you watch the live event streams the ad breaks are short. They're very repetitive, though. The streams of the TV feeds will show a few ads and then display a banner saying "Commercial Break in Progress."
That's no good for the stuff that is truly live live.
One major "issue" I see is a lot of repeats. I think it's been discussed some already in this thread or the other but if you are just at home all day with the TV on the Olympics, you see the same thing multiple times. Either on the same channel or different ones NBCSN showed the women's USA vs OAR game live this morning, then replayed it late this afternoon. Right now, main NBC is showing speed skating that already aired on NBCSN earlier today while NBCSN is actually airing LIVE live figure skating.
I'm not sure if I follow. Watch on delay, skip ads...
then I am not watching it live. I am watching history.
That's another reason I gravitate toward the live stream when I can, where incidentally the ad breaks made shorter (as I may have said). IMO most of everyone's complaints about inane NBC commentary, fake-live prime time programming, and the length of ad breaks is avoided by firing up the stream on your favorite connected device.
The live prime time I am watching now is really live
Making it all the more entertaining. (OK, limit her to the Prime Time/non-daytime feeds.)
This afternoon on broadcast, commercials were coming in at 5 or 6 minutes. I managed to watch the coverage plus another show at the same time.
Im watching the live stream of the half pipe tonight on roku, no nbc this time
the weather isn't helping things either.
How are you watching on Roku?
Is Men’s Downhill qualifying the only ski event that has actually happened yet? Seems like every night skiing gets cancelled.
NBCSN app on Roku
I agree. I turned off the local NBC feed when they broke for a stupid annoying Lyrica ad. Also the NBC announcers are so annoying like they are speaking from a funeral.
The NBC app has a different feed which has British and American announcers with no commercials during the events the announcers are great. Just when there is nothing going on practice ring they will break for local NBC Sports app only ads. The summer Olympics in Rio had the same feed.
I believe its been the only alpine skiing so far.
You can watch "really live" events in the live stream with shorter ad breaks and informed commentators.
Not on my TV I can't.
Plus miss out on Johnny and Tara? no way!
