Opening Ceremony for the London 2012 Olympic Games

The Opening Ceremony for the London 2012 Olympic Games starts tonight, Jan. 27, on NBC at 7:00pm Eastern Time (although other reports say the tape delay will begin a bit later at 7:30pm — check your channel guide to be sure). The broadcast is a few hours later than UK time, where the pre-show started at 8:12 . Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh will officially open the games to an estimated audience of four billion.

A total of 15,000 performers will play a role in the Olympic and Paralympic Openings tonight, directed by Danny Boyle, Bradley Hemmings and Jenny Sealey. The opening ceremonies, called the ‘Isles of Wonder’, has been seven years in the making at a cost of an estimated $42 million.

The 2012 London Summer Olympics (broadcasting on NBC and affiliates) are available to watch through a variety of ways, including traditional television, streaming online at NBCOlympics.com, and through the NBC mobile apps. Unfortunately, for online viewing (including apps), you’ll need a television service provider.

If you’re off-the-grid (meaning, you cut the cable cord), you can tune-in to digital broadcasts via an antenna attached to your TV or PC (with USB TV tuner).
