Two New NBC Mobile Apps, coming available on Thursday, for watching the Olympics. Mobile Apps for the Olympics were popular 2 years ago for the Vancouver 2010 Olympics but by the sounds of it, viewers will now be able to actually watch live video of the games, not just check the latest standings.
NBC is launching two mobile apps that will let people watch Olympics events as they happen, look up athlete profiles and access other extra content on their iPads, iPhones and certain Android devices.
NBC says most of the content will be available only to pay-TV subscribers who have MSBC and CNBC as part of their service. The apps — NBC Olympics and NBC Olympics Live — are free to download starting Thursday.
The apps were created by Adobe Systems Inc. Adobe says NBC will receive analysis about how people interact with the content and ads on the apps.
NBC says is the first time that all the Olympic events, more than 3,500 hours of coverage, will be available on smartphone and tablet computers.
