I remember watching the 1988 Summer Olympics as a kid lying on my parent’s living room floor in front of a large TV with an even larger antenna and fuzzy picture. What is almost as amazing as the athletic feats of our men and women Olympians are the vast changes and improvements to technology over the last few decades.
This summer, as a customer of Time Warner Cable, I’ll have the ability to watch the London 2012 Summer Olympics from almost any device, anywhere and anytime I’d choose. Time Warner Cable has partnered with NBCUniversal to provide its customers unprecedented access to NBCUniversal’s more than 5,535 hours of Olympic programming (the most ever coverage of the Olympics, across multiple platforms, including:
- Live coverage on NBC’s cadre of networks, such as NBC, NBC Sports Network, MSNBC, CNBC, Bravo and Telemundo.
- Two specialty channels devoted solely to coverage of the basketball and soccer competitions.
- For the first time ever a 3D channel is available, showing 242 hours of Olympic coverage in 3D on a next-day delay.
- The NBC Olympics Live Extra and NBC Olympics apps are available this year for mobile devices and tablets. They provide live streaming and event replays from NBCOlympics.com and include short-form highlights, schedules, results, columns and more. Time Warner Cable customers must verify their subscriptions to use the apps by registering with MyServices first.
- Of course, On Demand footage of NBCUniversal’s full-event coverage and highlights is available in a variety of sports.
To learn more and to find the channel listings in your area, visit www.NBCOlympics.com. Don’t forget, the Game’s Opening Ceremonies are Friday night, July 28 beginning at 7:30 p.m. ET.
