My buddy Derek in Idaho is excited about the NBC Olympics Live Extra app. Free for iPad and iPhone.
There’s an Android app too, I’m told.
Reviews are mostly negative, sadly. It’s only available from the U.S. iTunes store, so don’t bother if you are from anywhere else.
NBC uses Adobe® Flash® not HTML5.
And is (mostly) not available outside the USA:
Q: Can we watch video on NBCOlympics.com outside of the United States?
A: Due to Olympic broadcasting regulations, NBC is only allowed to show Olympic content on the internet for the United States & U.S. Territories. Users outside of those locations will still have access to an extensive set of non-event video content on NBCOlympics.com.
Q: What is required for access to view “Live Streaming” video content?
A: With a cable, satellite or telco TV subscription that includes MSNBC and CNBC, you can access live streams of EVERY Olympic event at no additional charge.
Q: When is this Live Streaming content going to be available?
A: Live Coverage of Olympic Trials events to begin in June.
Live Olympic coverage and full event replays will be available starting July 25th, 2012.
