So if you have watched the Olympics you are probably just as frustrated as everyone else about the delay and Susan Wilson has started a petition on change.org to let NBC know! Below is her petition and a link for you to go sign if you agree so let them know!
2. Pledge to air future Olympics live as well.
It’s fine if NBC wants to tape the Olympics and air the tapes during primetime viewing hours. But they should be showing the Olympics live so that we can experience the emotional intensity that defines the Olympics and makes it so special.
I’m no athlete but I do love the excitement of watching a great competition and I certainly want to experience history AS IT HAPPENS – not when the media decides they can make enough money to show it to me.
Please sign my petition asking NBC to air the Olympics live on television.
If you sign this is a copy of the letter that will be sent
NBC: Play the Olympics Live
I am disappointed that NBC is not playing the 2012 London Olympics live. By the time NBC gets around to showing the events, we’ve already seen the results on Twitter, on Facebook, on news websites, and even announced by Brian Williams on the NBC Nightly News.
That’s why I’m asking NBC to do two things:
1) Air the 2012 Olympics live.
2) Pledge to air future Olympics live as well.
The Olympics mean so much to so many of us and I hope NBC will help fans be able to enjoy the games to the fullest!
