The Olympics are in decline. NBC is welcome to them.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

This. By 2032 there may not be an Olympics to broadcast.



It is what it is.

Actually, that would be entirely appropriate for the Rio Olympics!

It only seems that way because you are watching it on NBC.
They will get the hint when their coverage is beaten out by reruns of 'MacHale's Navy' on the Antiquities Channel

I don't understand why the rights to distribute coverage of an international event are restricted.
I would mind NBC's stranglehold less if the company that owns the pipes didn't also own the content (e.g. Comcast.)
The two should be divested.

$

But did you really need to ask? I suspect the USA rights heavily subsidize the entire enterprise.

Might have to figure out how to stream coverage from another country.
