Hmm, what would you rather watch?

Quote:
The U.S. vs. Canada men's preliminary-round showdown Feb. 21 won't be shown on NBC, but on cable's MSNBC at 7 p.m. EST. Instead, the Peacock will bring fans an exhilarating night of ice dancing, women's speedskating, men's freestyle skiing and men's giant slalom – rather than what amounts to an NHL all-star game on an international stage.

NBC explains its ice-dancing-over-U.S./Canada-hockey decision

So we reached out to NBC for comment and context, and found out who gets the blame for this malarkey: American women.

I'd be upset if I had NBC, but I don't....so I can actually watch the game if its on MSNBC. I don't have a problem with it at all. :grin:

Women love ice dancing/ice skating and I am sure the ratings whoop hockey. :roll:

NBC needs to have more options for the olympics for people who don't have cable...maybe three stations created just for the olympics that people could pay for...maybe $50. They could name the stations Red, White, and Blue and show events non-stop on each station. They could rerun the popular ones overnight and have recap shows overnight as well.

It's genius.

That's a good idea, I'd definitely pay 50 bones for something like that.

I was actually joking.
NBC tried this in 1992...and it flopped...maybe because it actually cost $95-$170.
It was called, the Triplecast.

You usually can't sign up for cable without a contract of some sort.

NBC even cut out the live streaming of events to cut costs. :facepalm:
