Olympic Opening Games Kick Off In London – Under Rain

The 2012 Olympic Games have begun.

And rain in England greeted fans who crowded Olympic Stadium as the show kicked off.   But already some issues.  Because of the 8 hour time difference,  we will be watching Friday night as the ceremonies already happened.   But unless you have cable, you can’t watch online.   NBC has made it clear they own the rights to the games, and thousands of internet would be viewers around the world have not been able to watch.  NBC had advertised that you could watch real-time events as they happen on the internet, but you have to have a cable subscription.   They didn’t tell anyone that while they were advertising the events. 

 For some pictures of what the spectacle will look like before it begins, click here for images from the Daily Mail British Newspaper.
