    Default NBC's "Live" streaming not really live?

    Anyone else puzzled as to why, with the dressage tests starting at 11AM London time (4AM Eastern), NBC's "Live" streaming doesn't start til 6AM Eastern? Are they skipping the first two hours of tests?

    Did you notice delays with their "live" streams of the eventing?

    Just weird, is all, when the "Live Extra" App claims all the sports will be streamed live.

    Last time I looked 5 + 6 = 11, so 11:00 minus 5 hrs equals 6 am Eastern.

    OMG!!!!!! You're right! Crisis averted! I was figuring it out backward, don't ask me how.

    Guess I can sleep in tomorrow.

    Is anyone else not getting the live stream? I had no problems with eventing, can't seem to get dressage this morning though. Very frustrating!

    I had some difficulty getting to dressage from the schedules page (where I had gotten eventing) but managed to find by clicking the live/dressage banner from here: http://www.nbcolympics.com/equestrian/index.html

    This should also work: http://www.nbcolympics.com/liveextra...petition-day-1

    (assuming you've been using NBC. If not, my apologies.)

    AARRGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

    I also cannot get dressage. Just a black rectangle where it says LIVE NOW!

    I have tried using both the URL's suggested, and refreshed my screen many times. Misery loves company. Anyone else still unable to see the live feed?

    I needed to update my Adobe Flashplayer. But the NBC coverage is so sucky I am going to get the Expat Shield for BBC for the rest of the games.

    Thank you so much! Yes I was using NBC and your link worked. Had gone back to sleep (Mt time) but saw the last two and will watch tomorrow.
