"Ah, but teaching them coding is a vehicle for teaching them logical problem solving," - I'd think solving real-world problem is quite different than solving them using a computer language, or even logical problem solving - if it has to do with people.
Yeah seriously wtf. Streaming does cost some incremental $$$ so NBC serves paid subscribers only. OTA is there... why not? Peace/Global event/Olympic movement blah blah blah has nothing to do with this. Who has the obligation to provide everybody in the world the broadcast so we can watch and sit in our couch and eat pop corn? Or maybe IOC needs to provide TV sets for 3rd world countries?

"they could rake in just as much cash as they currently do through TV downloads and disc sales" - come on... capitalism asks for "getting as much money as possible", not "making the same money as before".
