I'm intrigued as to what percentage of Olympic viewers in the US will be watching the Games via television vs. online streaming.

This issue is reminding of the television monopoly and how much I detest it, but I'm not going to rant about it here

I wonder if they finally got busted for streaming matches and posting them when they didn't have licensing rights.  they've moved away from that lately though I think so probably just didn't grease the right palms.

Im sure they wanted more than Flo could afford.

Im becoming more anti-olympics everyday.

There needs to be a lot of reform and hopefully after a disastrous 2014 Olympics and the countless issues that have plagued these upcoming Olympics we can take the step towards proper reform

The Olympics have become an anachronism.  Why is it necessary to have sporting championship contests for every "approved" sport held over the same 2 week period?

Looks like someone finally called them out for all the matches they post without permission

It may not be necessary, but its a really cool idea. Too bad that the corruption is ruining it.

The corruption, the TV coverage, the inept third world governments hosting the Games recently (2014 Winter and 2016 Summer Games) and the various sports governing bodies.

The Olympic coverage has been less and less enjoyable since NBC took over from ABC.
