    I think all these amazing apps are meant for people who don’t get time to watch the Olympics live, following their favorite sport becomes easier now with the help of these apps.

    Thanks for the great app suggestions. I just downloaded OlypiCals and Medals 2012 so I can keep track of the events I want to watch and to keep tabs on the medal totals. I have been able to watch some of the games on TV but because of my hettic work schedule at DISH I really haven’t had the time to sit down and watch. Instead, I have been using my DISH Remote Access app to watch because it lets me stream all of my live TV channels no matter where I am. I guess between the 3 apps I should have all of the Olympic coverage I could need.
