+ - Olympics Free Online Streaming -- only if you pay for TV->

Submitted by Digicrat
Digicrat (973598) writes ""First, the good news: It's finally possible to stream any Olympic event live online, on a tablet or from your smartphone. [...] The bad news is that anyone in the U.S. who wants to enjoy live streaming of the games needs to have a current cable, satellite or telco TV subscription that includes MSNBC and CNBC (for some areas this may mean be more than just basic cable)."

NBC apparently considers the Olympics live streaming a premium event those of us that have cut the cable cord are not fit to see, despite advertising "free online streaming," and including advertisements alongside the streams.

It is sad that paying for the privilege to watch programs with advertisements has become an accepted standard."
