Great, just great. The CBC, in it’s infinite wisdom, isn’t streaming the finals for the women’s -67kg and men’s -80kg Taekwondo competition. The one where we have two competitors (one of who is a favourite for gold) in the quarter-finals. Thanks, CBC!
All of the live broadcasts are disabled for our territory, ie. USA! BBC, Australia, Yahoo, etc … No joke.
I feel like I’m in a communist state. F*** NBC and those corporate media pigs. Just turn the TV off!
I dont think that there are any legal online streams for Spain viewers. You can watch highlights on YouTube Official Olympics Channel
Is there any streaming for the olympics in Spain?
Yahoo provides only 100 hours of footage from Beijing, including the special live stream each day at a dedicated time and featuring some of the most popular Olympic sports.
For complete schedule of live broadcast on Yahoo 7 please check this Yahoo News Article
