    More than 5,000 hours from the London Olympics begins with the Opening Ceremony at 7:30 p.m. PT on July 27 aired on NBC 7.

    If you want to watch the events unfold online, there are some key things you need to do in advance.

    Go to and click to access a live stream or full replay.

    You will be prompted to select your cable, satellite or telco TV provider (e.g. Comcast, Time Warner, DirecTV, AT&T) from a list.

    You then will be asked to verify your TV subscription -- this often means only entering the username/password corresponding to the online account you established with your provider.

    For each device (e.g. laptop, desktop, tablet), you must only complete the verification process once, provided you check the “remember me” box when verifying your account information.

    Also note that for some at-home users, “automatic” validation may occur, allowing direct access to content without the need to input a username/password.

    There is no additional charge.
