London 2012 Olympic Games
Last night (27 July 2012) we witnessed one of the greatest shows on earth as the London 2012 Olympic Games Opening Ceremony finally arrived. After several years of planning, the eyes of the world watched the Opening Ceremony of the Olympic Games.
But many of us were left wondering — how to watch the Olympics from abroad?
NBC streaming services are limited to US residents and are usually unavailable when you go abroad. Also, the BBC is going to stream the Olympic Games for free but only within the UK.
In today’s article I’m going to write about a neat method on how to unblock both the NBC and BBC from [imwb_cgt_countryName] or wherever you might be. I’ll keep this article as short as possible so you can start watching the 2012 Olympic Games within minutes.
Unblock Olympic Games Streaming on the NBC
If you are an American citizen travelling or living abroad, you would most likely want to watch the Olympics via NBC – Practically you are all set if you have an American cable subscription. NBC will ask you to log in with your cable provider username and password on their website.
In order to get full access to their web site, you also need to mask your real IP address and obtain a US based IP. Otherwise, you will get this error message:
NBC is only allowed to show Olympic competition video on the internet to users in the United States and U.S. Territories.
We covered this topic thoroughly before. You can learn how to get a US based IP address and unblock the NBC Olympics Live Streaming in this previous article if you click this link.

Quite similarly, in order to stream the Olympics via the BBC, you will need to mask your current IP and get yourself a UK based IP address.
Using a fast VPN service (such as HideMyAss) you will be able to remove the infamous “This video is currently not available” error message and unblock the live video.
With a VPN software working in the background, we successfully unblocked the streaming:
