How to watch the 2012 Olympics after cutting the cable
January 2, 2012 6:45 PM Subscribe
I'm paying too much for cable TV that I don't watch, and I am fortunate to have good broadband internet (both from Comcast in the US). There are only a few events my family and I care enough about seeing immediately on TV. The Tour de France and major league baseball are both usually available via internet subscription services. But what about the 2012 Olympics?

I signed up for cable four years ago to watch the Beijing Olympics with my son, and we are really looking forward to this summer's events. There was a thread that year about online viewing
from which I learned that NBC's streaming of certain events was blacked out for US audiences. I'm not sure how much success was had using proxies or whether other alternatives were found, but either way four years is a long time and I don't know how much things have changed. Can anybody here offer reassurance, or warn me away from cutting the cord?
