NBC’s 2016 Olympics broadcast is the lowest-rated in years.
I’ll say it again. Serious Gymnastics fans should boycott NBC Primetime.
(The NBC live streaming coverage is pretty good, I hear. But I couldn’t watch it myself as I didn’t have a login. NBC was too fearful to offer something like a one time $35 online Olympics package.)
NBC’s TV coverage is the worst in the world
Starting on the wrong foot, NBC delayed the opening ceremony by one hour on the east coast of the U.S. and by four hours on the west coast of the U.S. The bizarre nature of the American delay caused mass confusion on social media, where the ceremony was being tweeted about in real time. …
… The coverage is fragmented, with fans seeing a routine or two, then being bombarded with ads. This procedure is repeated two or three more times until NBC cuts away to another sport. …
I don’t blame the commentary. It’s the Network mucky mucks who need to be replaced.
