Have Nots Screwed Again?

Dear NBC Universal,

I'm trying to watch a replay of the biathlon event online, but when I try to watch full events online, it tells me I have to log in to my cable provider. I don't have cable TV. Cable's pretty expensive. The recession hit my family pretty hard, and we don't have it. Heck, we didn't even get a converter box for the regular TV.

Today I went to a bar specifically because I wanted to watch the biathlon coverage. NBC's coverage was abysmal. The event wasn't that long to begin with, but NBC only showed a few minutes of it--not even enough to get a feel for what was actually happening. Meanwhile, there was plenty of time to get a "preview" of the moguls event.

So at home I tried to stream the full coverage, and found out that because I don't have cable, apparently I can't get access. Because I'm one of the 'have nots,' does that mean I'm stripped of my dream to watch the Olympics?

Please get back to me ASAP. The Olympics wait for no one.
Your pal,
