Some sports fans don't mind recording a game and watching it after it has already concluded, but for most it defeats the fun of watching a game live. That's why having the opportunity to watch as many Olympic events live as possible is great and NBC has been more than happy to oblige, promising live streaming video of every event on their official website for the 2012 London games.
Every event, that is, except the opening ceremony. While the ceremony will begin 9 p.m. London time, which translates to 4 p.m. ET, there will be no official stream online and the television coverage will not start in the United States until 7:30 p.m. local time.
The entire ceremony will be broadcast on NBC while news regarding the ceremony and the rest of the Olympics can be found here on SB Nation.
