NBC Will Stream Olympics to Android and iOS Devices

Posted by at 12:40 am on July 13, 2012

NBC has unrolled plans to offer every event at the 2012 Summer Olympics to smartphone and tablet users for free via dedicated mobile applications. The service, which will be available to Android and iOS devices, but not BlackBerries or Windows Phones, will require that users subscribe to a for-pay television service of some sort, whether it be cable or satellite.

The NBC Olympics Live Extra app can be used to watch some 3,500 planned events (competitions, medal ceremonies, etc.) during the two-week stretch of the games, which are scheduled to kick off July 27. A second app, called NBC Olympics, will offer additional content, such as athlete interviews and similar information.

Both apps are live in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store and can be used between now and July 27 to view the event schedule, select favorite sports, and so on. NBC will also be streaming the games via its web site.
