Streaming the Olympics Online Has Limits

Episode 896 (01:32)

The cable providers have demanded viewers who watch the Olympics streaming online verify they have either cable or satellite service. Leo says this is the last gasp of providers who are seeing users cut the cable in favor of watching their TV online. NBC also deliberately delayed the Opening Ceremonies and didn't stream it online. They claimed it's because it was "too sophisticated" to stream, but Leo says they wanted the ratings and the ad revenue, nothing more.
