Who's watching the GPS live tomorrow?
I'm getting up at 4:45 AM, brewing some joe, and plopping my butt on the couch for a very exciting 4 and a half hours.

Anyone else getting or staying up to watch the Special?

Ah I wish! I have to leave for work at 7.00. Oh wait! Hmmm...that would give me a few hours of viewing before I left. LOL

Yup, ya got 2 whole hours of viewing pleasure! To entice you, here's the startlist :

Olympic Equestrian - Dressage Individual Grand Prix Special Schedule & Results | NBC Olympics

C'mon, it'll be fun :happydance:

I am sorely tempted! LOL

I will have to set my work calendar to check out Charlotte's ride just before 11.00 am. I can prop my iPhone up against my laptop screen and stream live while pretending to actually work! :D:D

Oooh ...go for it! The Olympics come but once every 4 years, and Valegro is worth some stealth-watching:-)

Last week I actually propped my phone in front of my speedometer on my dash during 3Day SJ....stupid, I know:oops: I knew I'd kill myself or others if I did that on dressage days, so I just jujjed my schedule to start work later these 4 days:clap::thumbsup:

LOL I had a telephone conference start at 5.30 am last Monday. I had about a 15 minute contribution in to it, then just had to sit and listen. So that is when I whipped out the iPhone to watch the cross country. It was awesome! God bless live streaming and iPhones!! :clap:

Probably a dumb question, but can you get the LiveExtra thingie? For computers, tablets or smartphones?

QOS 08-06-2012 11:31 PM

I don't know!!! where do I look for it?

Weezilla 08-06-2012 11:41 PM

Go to 2012 Summer Olympics | Video, Schedules, Results, TV | NBC Olympics and look for the words LiveExtra,and click on it. Then follow the directions.
Smartphones have an app for LiveExtra-both Iphones and Droids. Go to the market to download for free.
Also, if you're on the computer you can get the BBC Olympics, but you will need to download a firewall called ExPat Shield...just google it. They have commentary.
