    It’s a disaster that neither TV2 nor NRK will broadcast the event in Norway. I am so fed up with the traditional TV channels loosing the rights to broadcast such events, and instead “wanna-be” channels try to do their best, when there are other channels that could do the job much better!

    • Hello,
      I am not sure if anyone is actually broadcasting the event in Mexico, probably due to a lack of interest. But, if you are interested, follow the methods described in the article to stream the Winter Olympics online on for example BBC in the UK which is completely free (except from the fact that you need to use a VPN and need a VPN subscription to actually stream the Olympics on BBC outside the UK).

    Thank you for updating the article as promised. I don’t have an NBC Cable subscription, so I guess I will go with BBC in the UK. Anyway cheap, even though I have to pay for the VPN, but considering the fact that I get access to the live streams for free at BBC, it is still brilliant.
