    Bill P.,

    NBCUniversal will broadcast the Olympics on the following channels and website.
    •NBC
    •NBCSN
    •CNBC
    •USA
    •NBCOlympics.com

    In addition to broadcast coverage on these channels all of the NBC channels will be available for streaming in the Contour app and On Demand will provide extensive coverage of all the Olympic events and highlights so you'll be able to catch up on anything you may have missed.

    colleen,

    can you tell me why i can't get authorized to watch http://stream.nbcolympics.com/figure-skating-mens-short-program? or other ice skating streams? 

    it says it requires a "simple one-time authorization process." in other words, i have to prove i pay SOMEBODY to watch anything.  but of course with cox...nothing is "easy!"

    i select cox, i even managed to get it to stop automatically loading user name & password so i could make sure it's the correct password (having changed it 15 times in the last 6 months...remember me from the internet and apps forum?) which i typed in myself.....the same combo that allowed me to post here! and it just won't "take."  the cox page flipped out 2 or 3 times then it took me back to the nbcsports page where it still says "verify now."

    oh, and i can't live stream either. 

    i thank them for bringong home the point that i'm not getting what i pay for tho.  i wasn't aware! :)

    socal transplant,

    I apologize for the delayed response. I just tested authentication with my own account at that link and was able to sign in successfully using Chrome (Version 64.0.3282.167.) Have you cleared cache and cookies or tried a different browser?
