Live streams & the Olympics: some viewing options

This morning I received an urgent email from a loyal reader: “The opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics in Sochi start in a few minutes.  How can I watch it on my computer?”

Obviously, by the time this column goes to press it will be way too late for anyone to tune in to watch what was a very impressive show from Sochi. The response I emailed to this reader, however, might be still helpful to anyone wanting to watch the XXXI Olympics from Rio de Janiero in 2016.

The place to start your quest to find a site on which you can watch the Olympics, or for that matter any other event, is to go to a search engine such as Google.  You will need to know a “key word” and in this case the word is “streaming.”  I entered a search for “Sochi Olympics streaming” (without the quotes) and almost instantly was presented 200 million hits.
