NBC's Olympic schedule

My at&t uverse has an olympic app. It allows you to see all the channels at once in multi-view. I noticed while Melissa Harris Perry is being preempted CNBC is running "paid programing". I looked up the schedule on the internet and it seems with all of the delayed programing anyway they could have shifted the between channels and delayed a few events to allow those two shows to air, in one hour versions if necessary.

Am I the only one frustrated the way NBC is choosing which networks and programs to preempt?

2. Prison TV was on MSNBC last night (and probably tonight too)

Election??? What election..

I find it odd that they so willingly cede it to CNN & FOX, after spending so much money advertising MSNBC as "THE place for politics"..

3. I see I am not alone on this subject.

I have always wondered why they have their weekend programing anyway. Does anyone really watch it? If they don't want to have a weekend news network sign off.

4. This is possibley the biggest Olympic coverage fail ever

Everything is on tape delay, there are more commercials than coverage and their live stream is the worst I've ever seen.

Epic. Fail.

6. Watch live here

http://tvpc.com/Channel.php?ChannelID=2620

go to "home" to choose what you want

So far today, I have watched archery, 2-man sculls, women's road race(pouring rain), target shooting, and multiple interviews about how they plan to fill those empty sponsor/big-shot seats..

Right now I'm watching BBC24 live with NO ads..

7. It's proof positive that Capitalism does not encourage innovation.

Capitalist elites are like any other economic elite, they actively oppose any innovation that might disturb their power.

8. not just that

I appreciate your frustration not being able to find the programs you want. NBC has done an incredibly bad job with this all the way around. Plus, yesterday late afternoon Olympic coverage on the Main NBC channel stopped and locally we got a TimeLife music infomercial... wtf?! My issues are the opposite of yours though.... I can't seem to find an Olympic schedule that shows which events are running on which networks and when. I have tried NBCs Olympic schedule page, but it just shows the actual event schedule, which is handy, but it doesn't tell me where I can watch or when. (maybe someone more clever than I can point me?) And to stream anything, I need my cable log in info which I don't have because my cable is provided via the landlord.... It shouldn't be this difficult.

9. This ^^

"I can't seem to find an Olympic schedule that shows which events are running on which networks and when."

My husband and I were talking about this earlier today. Honestly, either give the games back to ABC or make them open access and the network with the best coverage wins.
