If pissing off the Olympic audience were an event in London, NBC would be winning gold, silver, and bronze, every single night.
Refusing to air even the most dramatic competitions live, the network has resorted to streaming the Olympics online and showing the main events in prime time -- after the results have already been reported by the AP, ESPN, and even NBC.
The response from Twitter has been vitriolic. Most of what has passed through my feed is unpublishable, either due to apoplectic spelling errors or untoward language, but this tweet is sober and representative:
Why wouldn't NBC sell an all-you-can-eat Olympics streaming package for $29.95? Is that too logical?
