Just FYI, even if we miss the live online broadcasts of the equestrian events, we can still catch up with what we’ve missed. The equestrian page at NBC Olympics offers both highlights and entire events for playback.
So, if we have time to only watch highlights, we have that option. And, if we can spare an hour or two (sometimes three), we can watch the whole event. And we can pause playback for trips to the home concession stand. 🙂
Again, we need relatively new high-speed computers and Internet service, like broadband, to enjoy the full effect.
