With so many advances in technology, there are now plenty more opportunities to watch the Olympic games.
NBC has released two apps, Live Extra and NBC Olympics, for viewers to stream the events while on the go. The network will stream all 302 events in the London Olympics live.
In addition, the apps will enable users to get information on athletes, such as biographies and how many medals a team has won, in addition to linking to Facebook and Twitter feeds.
Are you one of the lucky ones who will be in London watching in person? Or will you catch up on TV, or have the games streaming live to your phone?
