Are You Frustrated That You Can’t Get Immediate Olympics Coverage On NBC ? Tech Talk

The  geeky sports fanatics out there are getting so mad at NBC that they are finding ways to get their Olympics coverage on their terms.

It’s an interesting sign of the times.  I can remember back “in my day” that when the ABC Network listed the times for the games to start, you either watched it there, heard radio updates or read about it the next day in the paper.  That was it!

But people are “antsy” these days.  They have their smartphones, iPads, laptops, YouTube, Twitter and the rest.  They want their coverage instantly.  A 5 or 6 hour delay is an eternity.

But some folks are finding ways around it.  According to an article at Newser.com, some geekazoids in the U.S. are finding these services that allow their  computers to log onto internet connections in England – essentially making the computer behave like it’s over there and not here.

I’m not advocating any of this, and use these things at your own peril.  I just thought it was interesting to see to what extent people will go to to get their information.

Are you frustrated with the time lag?  Please let me know (immediately) in the comment section.
