I have been thwarted in all my efforts to watch the women’s gymnastics Olympic trials. I have one of those tv antennas, but apparently it doesn’t pick up NBC. So I tried the nbc website, where it’s supposed to be streaming live. It let me watch for 45 minutes before asking me for a login (wtf? Why did it let me watch but then ask for a login 45 minutes in?). I’m now watching some illegal stream that gets me about 10 seconds of tv stream at a time (the ideal way to watch floor routines, obvi). This is why I refuse to watch anything but Netflix. This isn’t even cable, you’re supposed to be able to watch it without paying some exorbitant fee!
Update: the sketchy stream is now playing local news from Pennsylvania.
