Olympics time, aw yiss

Getting all excited for the Olympics today, heck yes. And also very annoyed with NBC.

They have all sorts of great live streaming and special video content on their website, but you have to have a TV provider to watch it.

Protip, NBC: I would like to watch the Olympics via your website because I do not have a TV. Therefore, I do not have a TV subscription of any kind. That is in fact why I would like to use your service!

This is both annoying and oddly hilarious to me, because my parents have often told the story of how they bought their first TV, back in the day when I was a tiny spritely thing, for the express purpose of watching the Olympics.

This is a family problem, is what I'm saying.
