Quaker2001 posted a topic in General Olympics Discussionhttp://www.nbcnews.com/news/sports/ioc-awards-olympics-broadcast-rights-nbc-through-2032-n99391 The International Olympic Committee (IOC) on Wednesday awarded NBCUniversal (NBCU) the broadcast rights in the USA for the Olympic Games through to 2032. NBCU has acquired the broadcast rights across all media platforms, including free-to-air television, subscription television, internet and mobile. The agreement from 2021 to 2032 is valued at USD 7.65 billion, plus an additional USD 100 million signing bonus to be used for the promotion of Olympism and the Olympic values between 2015 and 2020. The agreement is a major contribution to the long-term financial stability of the entire Olympic Movement. The IOC distributes more than 90 per cent of the revenue it generates to support the International Sports Federations; the 204 National Olympic Committees and their Olympic teams; and the Organising Committees of each Olympic Games.

Do we have a thread dedicated to NBC's coverage this year? I vaguely remember having one during Vancouver and possibly during Beijing as well. Good place to either complain ("no live ceremony!") or praise ("the stunning ceremony intro!") NBC and how they cover these Games. And I suppose this can also act as a "live" chat tomorrow night during the broadcast of the ceremony for those us who won't be able to or don't want to catch a pirated live stream. As for tonight, Rock Center will be broadcasting from London. Meredith Viera and Bob Costas will preview tomorrow's Opening Ceremony with an interview with the creative director Danny Boyle.
