NBC Sport Live Streaming Olympics

 

NBC Sports Digital (via Yahoo Sports-NBC Sports Network) is among the top destinations in sports with 52.8 million unique users in July, behind only ESPN.com (71.6 million), according to comScore.

During Olympic years, the site will stream another 4,000 events. With such marquee rights, executives are bullish on the financial potential of live streamed sports.
