The biggest sports event is waving to people all around the world. And London Olympics Live Broadcasting is ready. This year, you have chance to get access to every live-streaming single Olympic event from NBCOlympics.com. Live streaming begins on July 25. And in order to get a video stream, you have to have a cable, satellite, or telco TV subscription that includes MSNBC and CNBC; after you verify that you’re a customer, there’s no charge for viewing.
Here’s how to get access to the live streams:
1. Make sure CNBC and MSNBC are part of your television package.
2. Go to NBCOlympics.com/liveextra and click the Get Started button.
3. Click on your TV provider, then enter your username and password for your account (if you don’t have those or don’t remember them, contact your provider).
4. For mobile devices, you can download a Apple iOS or Android app at NBCOlympics.com/on-the-go and then sign in with your TV account’s username and password.
5. For each device (laptop, desktop, tablet, or smart phone) you wish to stream to, you’ll need to go through the verification process only once—as long as you check the “remember me” box when you’re verifying your account information.
6. To watch online, you must have Flash enabled in one of the following browsers: Internet Explorer 8 and above, Firefox 3.6 and above, Chrome 16 and above, or Safari 5 and above.
