2012 Olympics Opening Ceremonies: Looking for Live Coverage?

The 2012 Opening Ceremony for the London Olympic Games will be broadcast on tape-delay hours after it takes place.

If you want to see the Parade of Nations live during the Olympics Opening Ceremony, then you'll need to be in London.

In the age of Twitter, Youtube and instant expectations, NBC has decided to air the London Games' opening ceremonies on tape-delay.

The broadcast begins at 7:30 EST and is again delayed for the west coast so it runs at 7:30 PST, more than six hours after the ceremonies actually begin.

The move has drawn criticism on social media, according to the Huffington Post.

British journalist Matt Wells of The Guardian newspaper tweeted: "NBC showing complete contempt for its audience by not showing or streaming Olympics opening ceremony live."

Monrovia has a stake in this Olympics: four time medalist Kim Rhode of Monrovia will compete in her fifth Olympic games and hopes to medal in skeet and trap shooting.

too bad Champion Broadband isn't participating with the live stream online channel... we will miss so many events that don't get national TV coverage.
