Don’t Miss a Minute of the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver

Don't miss a minute of the Winter Olympics in Vancouver with NBC Winter Olympics to Go at http://www.nbcolympics.com/mobile/.

Remember when we used to race (no pun intended) home in the evenings in time to watch the Winter Olympics with our families? Imagine yourself with a cup of hot cocoa and a blanket sitting on the comfy couch beside a crackling fire and in front of the TV in the living room. Oh, those were the days.

These days, we’re more apt to miss the coverage of the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics altogether. Who’s home to watch? We are all running around trying to fit 25 hours in a day. But, there’s a solution. It’s that little mobile phone in your pocket. You know, that device that 89 percent of the U.S. population can’t live without.

Now, you can watch television coverage of the Olympics 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on your mobile phone thanks to NBC Olympics Mobile. Well, that is if you are an AT&T, Sprint, or Verizon customer.

If you are not, you can still get lots of goodies: top stories, medal counts, athlete profiles, videos, polls and trivia, live results and schedules, information about Vancouver, photos, and more. There’s also two apps: NBC Olympics App, which provides real-time live updates on every event in Vancouver, and the NBC Olympics Cheer App, which allows you to cheer for Team USA like you were there.

Isn’t it nice to know that you don’t have to miss one minute of the coverage? Thanks, NBC. You’ve done wonders for the relevancy of your brand by making sure we can see, hear, and talk about the Olympics from anywhere.

  1. Oh God – and I hate mobile phones! I can’t think of anything I would dislike more than watching TV on a mobile phone, unless its watching TV on my computer!!

    • I’ve not had the opportunity to watch tv on my mobile phone but think it will be great when I am out and can’t be in front of my television for something I really want to see. I’ve also watched tv on my computer, and with a good computer screen, it’s just like watching television the regular old-fashioned way. In fact, in some ways, it’s better. I can rewind more easily, and there are less commercials although all must be watched in order to get to see the offering. Thanks for your comment, Moranna.
