A Trials update from NBC

Posted by Ron Judd

An NBC spokesman now tells us that the track and field and swimming trials coverage on the Web site will "mirror" the East Coast version of NBC's TV coverage of those events, not the Pacific Time version. (See item below). Hence, some Trials action -- all of it that is shown on live TV on the East Coast -- will be shown live on, via the Internet. To find the live coverage, do the math: If NBC is showing swimming at 8 p.m. Eastern time, look for it at 5 p.m. Pacific time on In other words, you can beat the three-hour delay if you're willing to watch on the Internet.

Also, the network says it will, indeed, stream many hours of live Beijing coverage on once the Games begin. That schedule will be released sometime next week. We'll post it when we get it.

Still no live coverage of the Trials on TV for West Coast viewers. But we'll credit NBC for at least making some Trials coverage available live online for the true junkies out there. It's the least they can do, and they're doing that.
