"It's not me, it's you."
NBC made waves with the announcement that it would offer livestreams of all events during the 2012 Olympics. However, now that the London games are here, many viewers have complained about problems with the online broadcasts, noting that the video has been stuttering, freezing, or failing to play.
The network told The New York Times that the problems were not widespread or based in any issues within NBC. Rick Cordella, vice president and general manager of NBC Sports Digital Media, said the sources of the trouble might be the bandwidth provided by cable companies, or the viewersÃ¢Â€Â™ computers or devices.
NBC said it would attempt to adjust its livestreams and have normal service at the start of the week. If the online coverage isn't doing it for you, check out some of the many apps that will keep you up to date on the Olympics excitement.
