More ways to watch the Olympics than ever before

Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -- Watching the 2012 London Olympics during primetime is easy; just tune to WRCB-TV and you should be set to enjoy the night's offerings.

If you're a time-shifter and want to watch an event not in the evening lineup, there's always the DVR option.

But what if you'd like to sneak a peek during lunch? More and more, people are using smartphones and tablets to consume media, and the Olympics will be no different.

Download and install the NBC Olympic app for your iPhone or iPad.

For even more Olympic access, the NBC Olympics Live Extra app offers live video streams and full replays of events.

Android users can use the NBC Olympics app and the NBC Olympics Live Extra app.

It is important to note that these apps require that you have a current cable provider to login and use these apps. Also, remember that London is five hours ahead of us in the Eastern Time zone; six for Central.

Comcast (Xfinity) has apps to allow watching on smartphones and tablets. Xfinity users can download their iPhone/iPad sports app. For Android, use this link.

Depending upon your cable boxes and plans, these apps will also allow control of channel section and your DVR.

Another consideration: if you're a die-hard laptop or desktop user, you can always take that route. A wired connection will provide a better experience than a wireless network, but make sure you've done all your necessary security updates and browser updates beforehand.

Other NBC networks, such as NBC Sports, MSNBC, CNBC and Bravo will also carry live and primetime events; checking your provider listing and NBC's listings online will make sure you don't miss the events you're waited four years to watch.
