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! :)
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?
I'm sorry that you're having problems with the authentication process at http://www.nbcolympics.com. It isn't Cox that requires folks to prove they pay for TV content. NBC and all the other network TV broadcasters require that folks prove they subscribe to their content. Per the FAQ on http://www.nbcolympics.com/watch-live:
Authentication supports our ongoing investment in sports programming for all of our platforms and is consistent with industry trends. Digital platforms require significant investment, and authentication allows us to capture the value of that investment, which in turn allows us to continue to provide cable/satellite/telco/live streaming service customers with high-quality sports coverage wherever and whenever they want at no additional cost. Of course, NBC Sports continues to make premier live sporting events and other sports programming available to all viewers on free over-the-air television through the NBC broadcast network.
