    Default Here is the event schedule, live stream links and how to get on BBC...

    Don't see this posted yet, so here is the schedule of events so we know when the events are actually occurring, not when they are shown as part of the evening mash up.

    Default But I still don't know what station

    or which brand, Bravo, CNBC, Universal sports or what will be showing this stuff. I think they are actually trying to drive us crazy and doing a fine job if it!

    Default Thank you Equibrit!

    OK, I think I finally figured it out. It LOOKS like Saturday, it will be on only one channel, one time. And Sunday, with presumably better riders, only 45 minutes. And for x country, it looks like about two or three hours is all. Skimming thru the day, during prime time, it says non Olympic programming on all the other channels. MUST watch swimming.

    DO NOT FORGET !

    ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS: OLYMPICS SPECIAL

    Edina Monsoon (Jennifer Saunders) and Patsy Stone (Joanna Lumley) are well known for having their fingers on the pulse of the nation. As the sound of the approaching Olympiad reaches deafening proportions Eddy is surprised that it is all about to start. She has rented out her house to a Hollywood A-lister, but she's still living in it, as is her daughter (Julia Sawalha), her mother (June Whitfield) and her assistant Bubble (Jane Horrocks).

    Patsy tries to get into Eddy's body-suit to look suitably great for the A-listers, with disastrous results. Health professionals are summoned. Eddy feels that doors are closing on her, that age is catching up with her, that invitations are not coming her way anymore and that Stella McCartney's shop is closed to her. Then, to add to her depression, Bo and Marshall (her ex-husband played by Chris Ryan and his girlfriend played by Mo Gaffney) arrive to stay for the Games. Things can only get worse... Somehow before the flame has been lit they will end up running for glory inside the Olympic stadium and crash a reception for the likes of famed Olympians Dame Tanni Grey Thompson, Dame Kelly Holmes, and Stella McCartney herself. The special is a Saunders and French production for BBC, co-produced by BBC AMERICA and Logo. It is written by Jennifer Saunders and executive produced by Jon Plowman (Twenty Twelve, Extras). The Absolutely Fabulous: Olympics special premieres on Wednesday, July 25, 10:00pm ET.

    Thanks for posting this, I couldn't figure it out!

    It looks like I'll be able to watch the cross-country on Monday at 8:30 am on NBCSP, gotta check and see if I actually get that channel on my basic cable.

    Would LOVE to see the AbFab but don't get BBC America channel here

    BBC America is not showing the Olympics.
    BBC America canNOT show the Olympics for the obvious reason that NBC spent 100's of MILLIONS of dollars for the exclusive rights to broadcast the OG in the USA.
    However, you can watch the BBC coverage online (24 separate streams, showing 24 different sports). But to do this you have to fool the BBC servers into thinking your computer is in the UK. There are numerous threads that explain how to do this. Do a forum search on "Ex-pat shield". That is one option, there are others.

    Yes, you can watch the BBC live coverage! Go to CNET.com (a very safe site to download programs) and get "Expat Shield." It hides your identity so the "no access" gatekeeping system doesn't recognize that you're from a banned location!

    (Trust me, I can't believe it actually works, but it does! As I type this, I just finished watching Boyd Martin's dressage ride on replay.)

    Ooooh, COTH to the rescue!

    OHHHHHHH, I just realized, does this mean I can start watching Coro again? And the latest Downton Abbey? And Grand Designs...if so, I looooove you!
