London 2012 Olympic Cauldron...


Recommended Posts

It's not just NBC, but all networks that NBC owns. They are providing access online too. They're just not doing it very well and are very protective of the major sports. Example: All sports are available live and for replay online. However, if that event is going to air on the daily primetime coverage, then you can replay those events until after primetime coverage has aired on both coasts. So if I miss an event that airs live at 2:30p (and don't have tv), I can't watch the replay online until 3am the following day.

^^Man, from the perspective of Brazilian - we are used to have all the sports events live (indeed, sometimes it annoys a bit in our TV), this is really sad from NBC.

In my cable TV I have 10 channels with London 2012 24/7... And we don't need to pay more for it...

Plus TV Record and Record News (both open-air) are broadcasting all Brazilian athletes main events live and many other boring sports (to a Brazilian audience) like fencing or badminton...

For 2016, it's already confirmed we will have 3 of our 5 major open-air TV networks broadcasting the games live in HDTV

Plus 6 Sportv, 5 ESPNs and at least 2 BandSports....

By 2016, all TV broadcasters in Brazil must be HDTV.

:) YAAAAY! Long time no see!!! They are starting to show the Cauldron as a background shot on Prime/Sky sport...The stadium very much transformed into a track and field venue. Cauldron looks good, the petals still have their copper shine on. :)

Would they have HDTV in Rwanda? In the Maldives? In Haiti? Danny, I don't think the whole world's day revolves around TV. Not everyone and NOT every economy can always afford the latest technology ASAP.

I only pointed a random fact, not a comparision to show how great is Brazil because we have HDTV....

And for some countries, yes, TV is still the main window to the world.

I'd rather to watch sports events it in HDTV than in a Ipad or a computer screen, no matter how great is the bandwidth American have at home.

That's my sole point: NBC is preventing American to have live access to the biggest sports event in the world. Unbelievable!

I like the idea of some Hammer throwing absolutely smashing the world record and sending the hammer plummeting through the stems of the cauldron!

But all five major broadcasters and the main pay-tv channels already broadcast in high definition... I think that what you were trying to say is that all analog television broadcasts will be shut down in 2016, leaving room for digital television.

That's it, just a random fact...

Let's move forward, indeed, because people here only cares about bad facts of Brazil, never the good ones.

But we do have live access . . .

NSNBC (and I imagine NBC as well) has has cauldron shots since Saturday actually, though from different angles. On Saturday it was from the bottom up right in the middle of it.

It would be great if they offered up the live cauldron feed on their website. I wouldn't mind having that in the corner of my computers screen all day. :)

Here's my pic of it on the Stadium screens at the hockey last night. The screens are tough to see in the daylight unless you're at exactly the right angle; it was only as darkness fell that you were really able to see it

This is pretty pathetic. We might as well be searching for the last of an endangered species....

Considering how officials have not really picked up on the Mood out there...And why isn't there a big screen attached to the outside of the stadium...Then again in UK, Class Society rules...Can't have everything for the masses now can we? Keep it exclusive...I've gone off Sebastion Coe something wicked, stuck up prick!!!

That's a nice picture! I thought at first that they've suddenly placed the cauldron on the roof. ;)
