NBC has just released two apps that will allow iOS and Android users to supplement the 2012 London Summer olympics with scores and extras on their iDevices.
The NBC Olympics Live Companion app is designed to be used as a second screen for viewing stats and competitor details while also watching the Olympics live on NBC. The app will include news, on-demand video, and info on all 32 sports.
NBC’s other app, the Olympics Live Extra provides alternate camera views, and full replays on-the-go. Users will be able to follow their favorite events and sports, receiving push notifications for start times. The app will also offer full event replays.
The two apps support “TV everywhere” authentication, allowing cable subscribers to access all premium content from the Olympic games, including live broadcasts of events. All that’s required is a log-in with pay-TV credentials, and users can watch 3,500 hours of Olympic events.
Both apps, which are powered by Adobe, are available for free in the App Store.
