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.

Default 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.

Yea, it obviously knows where I am, but who cares, the NBC official app is horrible...

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
