Olympics: NBC Gives a Big Middle Finger to Over 100 Million Americans Without Cable TV
Continued from previous page
The irony is that Americans jonesing for this year's games can get around Comcast's blackout by doing what people in repressive countries whose governments censor the internet have long done: set up a mirroring service that makes it look as if their computer is located somewhere else, like London. These services cost $5-$10 per month, and allow users to catch all the games, in high definition and without tape-delay, on BBC.com.
An extra bonus is that the BBC apparently thinks that the games are dramatic enough on their own merit, and don't go in for the cheap, contrived melodrama that NBC's producers seem to adore. #NBCFail, indeed.
