NBC launched two apps Thursday for both iOS and Android, including one that will let select users stream every single event at the Olympics from their mobile devices.
The apps are NBC Olympics Live Extra, which will let you stream, and NBC Olympics, which will only provide highlights. Both are free and available now, but users who want to watch every event from their smartphone or tablet will need a cable, satellite or telco subscription supported by the app.
Live Extra will have more than 3,500 hours of programming and will show video from all events and all 32 sports. That's excellent news for fans of lesser-covered sports such as badminton or handball.
And for sports for which multiple events are happening at the same time, such as gymnastics or track and field, the app also will provide concurrent streams to let you watch multiple events at the same time.
