Glitch

So I woke up early this morning and realized it was a good thing I couldn't sleep. The US women's game is on and I went to find the channel it's on... and realized that I don't get MSNBC.

Crap.


Everyone here is still sleeping so I can't exactly call my satelite company right now for fear of waking up the entire Bueno household.

It looks like the games are being streamed on MSNBC.com (thanks AC!) so I'm heading there to watch it in the meanwhile.

Luis, the game is on streaming video in at www.nbcolympics.com

Bet you've got Comcast. They're run by a rather, um, conservative bunch, and have a long-standing beef with MSNBC, which they tend to remove from their systems (or at least banish to various digital tiers) whenever they can. If you've got digital, it could be somewhere on the system far, far away from the other news channels...

So I turn on MSNBC this morning hoping to catch the second half of US vs Norway and while the rolling guide on my Time Warner Cable says "Olympic Women's Soccer" currently airing on MSNBC, I turn the channel on and there is a recycled documentary airing on it!!! It is 6.00 a.m. here in southern California so I can't call customer service yet. Anybody else having this problem?

And I am one of those now increasingly rare people who don't have a high speed internet connection so online streaming video is not an option for me.

That's weird. I've got So Cal Time Warner and the game is on.

So I reach Time Warner customer service and they claim it was a problem from MSNBC's feed. Passing the buck obviously. But that can't be right as a.c. writes she has Time Warner and receievd the game on MSNBC!

They did tell me they've received a lot of complaints already so it is good to know the soccer fans out there woke up early and became mad when like me they could not get the game.
