EN Today: Watching the Olympics, an early guide

Hopefully, you’ve already made arrangements to take the last week of July off work to watch the Olympics. Abby Gibbon’s got your equestrian broadcast schedule here.

From Abby:

As the Games approach, we’ll keep you updated on all the latest viewing options, starting with this intro to catching all the eventing action within the US.

For better or worse, NBC has the Olympics broadcast on lockdown; check their equestrian broadcast schedule here.

The current eventing coverage schedule:

July 28, 10 a.m. ET: Dressage Day 1

July 29, 10 a.m. ET: Dressage Day 2

July 30, 12:30 p.m. ET: Cross-Country

July 31, 10:30 a.m. & 2:30 p.m. ET: Show Jumping

For localized listings, enter your zip code and cable provider on the NBC website.

Live streaming of “All 32 Sports, All 302 Events” will reportedly be available online through the NBC website to cable subscribers, though there’s a one-time authorization process requiring a password from your TV provider.  You can complete the sign-up process now to get it out of the way before game time.

Also keep an eye on NBC’s Live App site: Any day now they’ll be launching apps for both tablets and smartphones enabling mobile live streaming and updates.

Unfortunately, the IOC’s YouTube live stream, which will broadcast 10 live, free HD feeds in 64 territories, won’t be available in the US.

Stay tuned to EN for your continued Olympic eventing coverage needs.

Go Olympic Eventing.
