Going after the pf sounds amazing and excruciating all in one.

Also.... we're watching Olympics on NBC website and it's almost impossible to find the videos without first seeing the headlines giving away what happens.

Yeah, the NBC Olympics site is terrible. If you use the "replay" tab on the NBC Sports app, that works really well. And all the commentators are Australian for some reason.

Do you have to have a cable subscription for these options?

Get a VPN into the UK, then watch the BBC. Or is posting the Eurosport coverage of the XC events.

Who does NBC have as commentators? CBC is using Beckie Scott and Justin Wadsworth, which presents some conflict of interest concerns.

I followed the instructions on Wired for Sling TV.

7-day free trial. $25 per month after that.

Do you really have to put up with Australian commentators? They're painful enough to listen to if you're Australian. (On the other hand, maybe this is our revenge for having to put up with American commentators at 1980s Winter Olympics).

Our TV coverage hasn't always been getting rave media reviews either - one of many choice quotes:

"He was joined, not always smoothly, by Expert Snowboard Dude, who qualified for the job by shouting as hoarsely and excitably as if half the fresh powder in PyeongChang had gone up his halfpipe. Expert Snowboard Dude racked up some prepared lines such as "Korea has sent out a missile warning", which he should have pre-checked with Dave, given (a) the poor taste of the comment and (b) the fact that the snowboarder in question was not Korean but Japanese."

Ed, do you have a VPN working for the BBC? We haven't managed to get that to work for ages, iPlayer seems sneakier than it used to be.

ExpressVPN is working fine for me to watch the CBC coverage, both in my computer and phone. I was going to check if it worked on the BBC for you but you need to create an account to watch videos and that's annoying. I can try later if you want.
