I don't have TV. Why would I need it? I use my Netflix occassionally, but not often.. every now and then there is something tho, like.. the Olympics.. and NBC was all pimpin the first digital olympics and watch live online bla blahg blahaljdsalfkj freaking blah.

Well I got on there and what the fuck is this? Enter your username and password for your cable provider bullshit? I dont have a GD cable provider.. I wanna see the olmpics damnit.. i'm not signing up for cable TV to watch TV online.. thats defeating the freaking point of not having TV just having internet. srsly wtf.

so fuck you NBC..

4 years later... OLYMPICS, streamed by P2P through the bay of pirates. Quality so good, you won't notice the difference.

Meh, I know I can go to another source... but, you'd think that the official broadcaster for the olympics would just have a live damn stream with no stupid BS. The could even run commercials in it. Hell, if would be no different than an over the air signal picked up on an antennae..

^ which i would do btw but i live in the middle of nowhere.

lets say, that you're the one who owns this entire process of currently running the Olympics. Would you want to;

A. Make an online live stream of the olympics and waste decent sums of money on servers to stream it and get minimal amounts from the advertising.

or

B. Strike a deal with a cable provider to split the money 50/50 during this time, pushing more people to go live, AND getting the revenue from ads on that stream?

It's always a game of loss and profit.
