Olympic Opening Ceremony taped delay?

Olympic Opening Ceremony taped delay?

Postby hdtvset on Mon Aug 04, 2008 1:15 pm

Guys, I don't know where to post or ask this question in CL.

Is the Olympic Opening Ceremony taped delay and show in NBC at 7:30pm Friday? I hope I am wrong because I ordered a HDTV just to watch that LIVE. :bang:

its not live. its gonna start at 8 PM on local TV but in china its starting at 8:08 PM china time which would be 5:08 AM here. the only way you can watch it live is if you find somewhere to watch it online.

I'll never understand why NBC doesn't broadcast these types of events live. I understand a tape delay so a majority of people can watch it at a convenient time, but why don't show it live in addition to the tape dealy? It's not as if they'll be displacing anything worth much advertising money at 5:08 AM or as if everyone and their dog won't know all the details about a ceremony that has taken place almost 15 hours before...

I get the feeling that should the moon landings have taken place these days, NBC would have showed them in tape delay at a convenient time.

actually they are banking on advertising money. prime time = higher prices for advertising. theyve already been paid close to a billion dollars for advertising during prime time.

And why does that preclude giving it live IN ADDITION to tape delaying it until prime time?

Less people might watch it in prime time if they have already seen it live.
