Olympics Opening Ceremony 2012: TV Schedule, Watch Online, Live Updates And More

Events at the 2012 London Olympics kicked off earlier in the week, but the official start of the games is traditionally marked by the Olympiad's Opening Ceremony. This year the theme for the opening ceremony is "Isles of Wonder," and the celebration has been coordinated by a creative team headlined by Slumdog Millionaire director Danny Boyle.

NBC is not broadcasting the Opening Ceremony live in the United States, and instead opted to put the event on tape delay as part of its primetime Olympic coverage that begin at 6:30 p.m. CT. And then NBC is tape-delaying that again for the West Coast, where it will begin its broadcast at 7:30 p.m. PT -- 6 1/2 hours after the Opening Ceremony began.

Although NBC will offer live streaming video various Olympic events throughout the games for customers with "a cable, satellite or telco TV subscription that includes MSNBC and CNBC," there will not be any live Internet streams for the Opening Ceremony. American fans will just have to wait until primetime for full coverage.
