Thanks. I keep getting a message that says:"This video is not available due to location restrictions or authorization failures." I have no idea what that means since I can get streaming Olympic coverage for other sports, just not the sailing. Anyone know what is going on?
I have been watching the Olympics constantly, live streams and full replays, as much as i want so i don't know where this talk of a 30 minute subscription is coming from. Some airport wifi's have 30 minute timeouts so you just have to reload their wifi every 30 mins, which is a pain.
Also, you have to have a participating cable provider. If you are paying your cable bill nbc will let you watch their stream as much as you want "free" since you've already paid for it. I just had to sign in to nbcolympics 1 time, select directv from the list, entered my valid directv email address and password, it's verified and viola!
Now, as far as the message you were getting I had the same thing when I tried to watch the events from the live tv stream. I had selected my local nbc affiliate in atlanta wxia, even though i was on business in new york. I then got the same message. I finally figured out that my wifi's ip/server address was in denver. I looked up at the address bar and it said something like blah-blah-et-ct. I deleted that and put -mt and it worked! Apparently the wifi & my ip address weren't talking to each other so i helped them out a bit.
Hope this helps.
P.s. i've also been watching on an acer chromebook and it's fantastic! My iphone, regular acer netbook, and other tablets just want to konk out.
