    NBC's Olympics coverage, anchored by Bob Costas (pictured with the U.S. gold medal-winning gymnastics team), has been criticized for tape-delays and limiting online access

    It didn’t take long for the #NBCfail hashtag to rear its ugly head on Twitter. The XXX Olympics had just begun in London, and NBC Sports was soon criticized for everything from tape delays and too many commercials to limiting online access to pay TV customers. Cord cutters are welcome to watch old highlights online or commercial-filled replays at night on NBC. But now NBC says “the silent majority” loves its coverage, which has broken records in ratings and might even turn a profit for the network. So what do you think about NBC’s coverage so far? Are you enjoying it? Wish you could see more online? Vote in our poll and share your gripes or praises in the comments below.
