    Great! It'll be nice to be able to watch them without having to go through some weird internet TV provider.

    I wouldn't call beIN Sports weird and most cable and satellite providers offered it.

    Let me add -- "... and not have to pay extra for it."

    Okay, so you mean an OTA channel. However, you'll still pay to get all the Diamond League coverage since only 10 of the 58 hours will be on NBC.

    Are we actually PRAISING the fact that NBC can now ruin the DL's---just as they do every other meet they "cover"??

    LOL

    IMHO that is "just a little" too harsh...weak coverage better than no coverage and TV still better that streaming which all too often provides less than ideal picture...and not too thrilled with Brit announcers who seem to be everywhere on streaming

    Exactly. Thank you, NBC.

    Whoever does not like it can always resort to the pirated webcasts as those of us that have no access to beIN had to do.

    I'm thrilled. Between NBC, NBCSP and nbc on-line, I'll see it all. I can put up with any and all inane commentary as long as I get to see it live!
