How to Complain to NBC About Olympic Coverage

Thanks to @ladyneat for Tweeting the email address for complaints to NBC about their Olympic coverage. The email address is

I sent the following brief email to them complaining about the poor coverage afforded to hockey at the Olympics.



Subject: Olympic Hockey Coverage

Initially I was unhappy with hockey being removed to your cable stations (USA, CNBC, MSNBC) because I do not get them in HD. I overcame my disappointment with the thoughts that at least the games would be center stage on the cable channels and be shown in their entirety.

Now that I see they are pre-empted by curing, commercials, and women's hockey, I am even further disappointed in your coverage. I will say that overall, the coverage is better in the other sports than in Torino but as an partner with the NHL in their Game of the Week coverage, it would behoove your interests to give Olympic hockey more of a priority.

In return, I received an email and was asked to join an "panel" to give my opinions.
