Olympics Opening Ceremony 2012: TV Schedule, Watch Online, Live Updates And More

While the NBC Olympics website promises to provide fans with "access to live streams of every Olympic event" there is one particular event during the games in which they're going to leave us hanging. The opening ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics will not be streamed online and those that hope to watch the opening festivities will have to wait for them to be televised on a tape delay.

Those that like to watch their sports and other events live as they happen will be out of luck as the opening ceremony will begin over three hours before anyone on the United States gets a chance to see what's happening.

While the ceremony will begin at 9 p.m. in London time, that is 4 p.m. ET and fans will not have access to any official broadcast or stream of the event live. At 7:30 p.m. local time in each time zone in the United States, the opening ceremony will be shown on NBC.

For full coverage of London 2012, head over to SB Nation's Olympics hub.
