Default NBC streaming Olympic Coverage

I've been trying different apk's of Adobe Flash, the old version of Dolphin with flash support, Firefox beta - no joy. I can get flash video to work in the old Dolphin but NBC's web site requires a sign in to your cable provider. The process seems to hang with a revolving "please wait" circle. I'm assuming this is a flash bug? Anyone get this to work on the N7?

Edit: Just discovered NBC's Live Extra app. Works great.

Yup, got the app working today as well. Had to beg, borrow, steal a cable/satellite provider login but it is worth it. Watching women's fencing right now on the N7 and it looks amazing!

Maybe it was the women's beach volleyball that screwed up my screen.

I downloaded the live app as well but was really impressed with the resolution, it seemed less than HD to me.

Can't tell if you were or weren't impressed with the video quality but I know a lot has to do with the quality of your wi-fi signal. Walking around here at work (How great is that?!? I'm walking around with a device in hand and getting great looking video all the way from GB!!!?!) and get mostly really awesome looking video unless I'm between wi-fi routers in some of the not so well covered halls.
