There is a report that NBC will host the closing ceremony of London Olympics 2012 online and this precious closing ceremony will held in Sunday.
In an official statement NBC Sports Chairman, Mark Lazarus said “Going into the opening ceremony, we didn’t have a sense for what our ratings would be and what streaming would or wouldn’t do to our broadcasts,”
“But we think we’ve learned enough and have promised to innovate and continually evolve our broadcast coverage.”
According to a report from Huffington Post “Sunday’s ceremony from London will still air on a tape-delayed basis on NBC in prime time. For the opening ceremony, NBC took some heat for not making the event available to anyone in the United States for hours after the fact.”
I would say that the opening ceremony of London Olympics 2012 received a huge response from people worldwide because the ceremony was watched by almost 40.7 Million people that is more than any event’s audiences whether it is Grammy or Oscars.
