Olympic Coverage - Download, Online, DVR Technical Talk

I logged into NBC with my cable TV info, and click to watch the Men's RR live, but just get a black screen. I have Adobe Flash 11 (current). Also using IE 9. Not sure why it's not working.
Bikes: Old steel race bikes, old Cannondale race bikes, less old Cannondale race bike, crappy old mtn bike.

Apparently I dont have a good enough Dish package to qualify for online viewing..... Buuuuuut, I did pay for NBC streaming of the Tour, and it used the Silverlight plugin. Might want to check you have latest installed, shut down browser, and restart. I had trouble with Chrome, but Firefox, Safari, and Explorer all worked fine on various machines.

Do you run adblock+ on Chrome? I noticed that it seems to work on IE but not Chrome, but there is a commercial. I might try and disable adblock+ and see if that is what is killing it later.
