London 2012 Opening Ceremony: TV Coverage, No Streaming, No Live Updates And More

The 2012 Summer Olympics get underway tonight with the Opening Ceremony. Unfortunately, you're out of luck if you want to watch this event live. Here are the details for watching tomorrow's Opening Ceremony

TV coverage: The broadcast on the West Coast begins at 7:30 PM PT on NBC. Bob Costas and Matt Lauer will anchor the proceedings with Meredith Vieira as a correspondent.

Streaming: None. At least no legal ways I know about. NBC's tape-delayed coverage of the games (which will be tape-delayed from the East Coast) will be the only way fans in the Bay Area will enjoy this fanfare.

Live updates: There will be no live updates of the event as it's happening for you, unless you want the whole thing spoiled for your tape-delayed viewing pleasure. The "The Isles of Wonder" opening ceremony commences Friday night in London at 9 p.m. local time, which means it's happening at 1 p.m. PT. You'll have to wait until the TV broadcast.

The good news is that there will be a tape-delay of the tape-delay of the tape-delay later on in the night if you miss the evening show!
