Where to watch ceremonies online?


Recommended Posts

Ok i'm kinda scared right now because of lack of interest by the media here in south america for the winter olympics, and i'm afraid the national TV will not show the ceremonies this time (altough they did a great coverage of Beijing). Anyway, i'm looking for help about the issue D: . If someone can give me some links to streaming sites to watch the olympics online, i would be eternaly grateful, and i hope this can also help other people with similar troubles. :)

Where are you from?

Broadcasters are only allowed to stream live video within the country that they own the broadcast rights to.

Venezuela. And yeah, i noticed CTV didnt let me get on the stream site because of my location. :(

I have the same problem here in Chile... and it did happen in Torino 2006. I couldn't watch the Opening because no TV channel broadcasted. I've seen that ESPN will broadcast the Games but I don't know if they will broadcast the ceremonies.

I'm so upset with Chile sending just three athletes, so the channels not broadcasting the ceremonies would be the icing of the cake :angry:

I believe ESPN+ is broadcasting the ceremony starting 11pm. They have a slot from 11pm to 2am. Isn't that the time in Chilen when the OC is taking place?

You should be OK with Justin TV

For hockey and curling anyway. But according to some news articles, NBC is threatening to yank Justin.tv for other sports. :o

Here's one news story about NBC v Justin.tv, but there's quite a few stories out there--> http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/olympics/2011023126_olycanadiantv09.html

NBC should provide their own streaming if they're going to try and stop everyone else from doing it! :mellow:

My understanding is that when you visit vancouver2010.com it will use your IP address to offer a live stream directly on the splash page.

Was about to ask that exact question. I hope it is on iPlayer because I won't be around to watch it live and won't be around for the highlights show either, sadly.

EDIT: Once again you're shaming London 2012's branding dept with your sig Dave. Nice work!
