In the US? Today my coworker reminds me Aug 8, the opening ceremony is only a week away.
(Update Aug 7) More up to date stuff from mitbbs (go to the end of this post to get the instructions in Chinese).
So far NBC family (NBC, MSNBC, CNBC) has no plan to do it live. NBC will show the video at 6:30 PM local time instead.
“Coverage of the Opening Ceremony from Beijing’s National Stadium, where athletes from over 200 nations will converge to ignite the Games of the XXIX Olympiad. ”
UUSee: go to uusee.com and install the client software. But according to some source, the IP outside China will all be blocked because UUSee only got broadcast rights inside China (source: ChinaNews).
Sohu: same restriction as UUsee? To be confirmed.
Maybe some smart techies can provide us a solution? After all, that’s the first time China hold the Olympics, but the overseas Chinese can not see the opening ceremony live. Shame on the IOC and NBC 🙁
