Every 2014 Olympic Event Will Stream Online, For a Price

Good news: Each and every 2014 Olympic event will be streaming online, legally, through NBC's official 2014 Olympics website and mobile apps. Bad news: You need cable.

Go figure, NBC's partnership with Yahoo for Olympics streaming isn't quite the internet-future you might have hoped it would be. Sure, it's great that online is an option, and some events might be free to watch, but Variety reports that the "vast majority" of events will require cable or satellite TV credentials to stream according to NBC.


It's a bummer, but not exactly a surprise. This is pretty much how things went down last time too. Maybe 2016 will be the year the Olympics finally breaks free of those pay-TV chains. But at this rate it's hard to be too hopeful. [Variety via Fast Company]
