ESPN live channels

I've been trying to enjoy ESPN this week and a good deal of their coverage is based on the Olypmics. Even shows like Pardon the Interruption and Around the Horn. I find it a little ridiculous that this coverage is blocked. Anytime video from the Olympics should play on these shows, it says "Video Unavailable" and the screen is blurred, although you can see the outline of the show in the blurring.

 

For what we pay for cable and internet and the amount of ads in most of the shows, especially online, I find this unacceptable. I realize that this is not going to get fixed as it's most likely based on the contract NBC has to air the Olympics. However, I'm deeply disappointed with this.

ESPN manages the programming content that is available for viewing in their live stream on XFINITYTV and WatchESPN, and they may not have made all Olympics coverage available.  For live streaming or highlights of Olympics coverage, please sign in to www.xfinity.com/nbcolympics.
