    Arrow How to view Badminton online?

    On a recent trip to Asia and watched first hand how the badminton was played as a competitive sport instead of a backyard game here in America, I was instantly glued to it and wanted more of it. NBCOlympics.com scheduling says that badminton will be available online but failed to provide any instructions on how to access it. I called the local NBC affiliate and they have absolutely no clue. Do any of you know the details on how and when I can access this "online" viewing? Can I also assume few to no badminton will be broadcast live on any of the NBC (NBC, MSNBC, CNBC) TV channels? Hope you can help. Thanks.

    You could try the http://www.nbcolympics.com/video/player.html link

    When the live broadcast begin during the games it should just be clicking on the links on the nbc site to show the video in your browser

    I think you may need to register on the nbc site as well.

    It is not true that badminton won't be on TV in the US. A number of games were shown 4 years ago. The only thing is it probably will be mixed with other sports and shown in the middle of the night. So, I plan to have my DVR ready and record all night . I will cut-off the non-badminton later. See the US broadcast schedule here.

    It will be on MSNBC, USA, and maybe even NBC. Good luck and enjoy.

    BTW, if you like the sport, get out and play. It is a lot of fun. Trust me, it is not a backyard sport, not even in America. That is a mis-perception

    Angry Problems viewing the video live

    I am watching the women's badminton on "live" video but I notice the sound is coming thru fine but the images are coming in slow like a still image piece by piece with a big delay. Do you know what the problem is? Can it be my ATT DSL speed is simply not fast enough to broadcast the video? Are any of you experiencing the same problem I'm having?

    Hmm! Interesting. My picture quality is fine but no sound (huh??). In your case, it must be your download speed. Try to connect directly to your router (not use wireless). Exit applications that you don't need (to free up some memory). If it still not work for you, try rebooting your computer.

    Thanks, Fan888 for the great feed. Thanks also to TwoBeers, although your address didn't quite make it.
