2012 London Olympics Closing Ceremony Airs Tonight, Or Watch It Earlier Online
The 2012 London Olympics will come to a close today, and those who are interested in watching the closing ceremony will have a number of ways to do that. Not only will NBC be broadcasting a tape-delayed version of the ceremony, but they'll also be streaming it live online in just a few hours. Details ahead!
Those who prefer to watch the ceremony on television will find NBC's primetime coverage beginning at 7:00 p.m. ET/PT (running to 10:58 p.m.), though NBC's listings have the actual ceremony scheduled for 8:30 p.m. ET. Last week, we learned that the ceremony will include "A Symphony of British Music," which will feature world-famous British musicians. While the featured artists haven't been revealed, music acts like the Spice Girls, Adele, George Michael and the Who are some of the rumored names circulating. We'll also get to see the traditional hand over of the Olympic flag, which goes to Rio for the Summer Olympics in 2016.
Those who don't want to wait until tonight - or if your DVR is booked with regularly scheduled Sunday night primetime TV shows - can catch the Closing Ceremony streaming live to cable, satellite and telco customers who verify their subscriptions at NBCOlympics.com. We haven't seen the direct link for the stream at NBC's website yet, but according to the site, it will be streaming live there at 4:00 p.m. ET. It will also be available streaming through NBC's Olympics Live Extra App.
And if you need a little something to get you amped up for the big Closing Ceremony, NBC posted this video, titled "The Best Moments of the 2012 London Olympics." It's mainly comprised of some of the most exciting U.S. gold medal victories of this year's games. But you will see a few great moments featuring Jamaican runner Usain Bolt, and some other victories for non-U.S. winners.
UPDATE: Here's the link for the Closing Ceremony streaming live at 4:00 p.m. ET
