London 2012 Opening Ceremony: TV Coverage, Streaming, Live Updates And More

The London 2012 Olympics kick off on Friday night in the Opening Ceremony. In its simplest form, the ceremony functions as a parade for all participating nations and the traditional presentation of lighting of the Olympic Flame in the cauldron.

Artistic Director Danny Boyle heads a creative effort to expose the world to the culture of the United Kingdom in the display and performances surrounding the Opening Ceremony. Dubbed "The Isles of Wonder," viewers will be treated to spectacle by Boyle, the Oscar-winning director of Slumdog Millionaire.

A quick rundown of how to watch the Opening Ceremony:

TV: NBC will broadcast the Opening Ceremony on tape delay at 7:30 p.m. PT - 12:00 a.m. PT

Internet Streaming: The Opening Ceremony will not be streamed online live, but clips and highlights of the ceremony before NBC's airing will be available online.
