Awesomesauce. The really strange thing is that while the Play Store won't even let you install the app if you're in the US, the app itself appears to be geographically aware -- I see a front page section called "Team USA". I can't imagine that's hard coded.

works on stock jelly bean
Thanks for this. I tried Market Enabler and had the message it wasn't compatible with my device (GNex Jelly Bean). This apk installed fine and I can open the app and watch videos. No live streams yet, so see what happens then.

Yeah, it was kinda strange for me too. On the market (via Chrome) it said that my device isn't compatible, when I scanned a QR code it said that I can't download it outside the UK, but Market Enabler did the trick.
It's such a good app!

Thx for the link. It's kind of a cool feature, but unfortunately not so handy if you are an expatriate.. I live in Sweden but I'm Italian.. so "unfortunately" I'll get all the news about the Swedish team and not about the fabulous Italian athletes
