→ Opening Ceremonies Too Complex for Viewers

[A[n emailed statement that the ceremonies “are complex entertainment spectacles that do not translate well online because they require context, which our award-winning production team will provide for the large prime-time audiences that gather together to watch them.”

  1. If the comments are Twitter were any indication, I am not alone in thinking that the commentary during the opening ceremonies was atrocious. Of course the reason they did not put the ceremonies online was because they wanted to get a huge ratings number for the event, and of course they are not going to come out and say that.
