Olympics 2012 Opening Ceremony: TV Schedule, Watch Online, Live Updates And More

The 2012 Olympic Games begin tonight as the Olympic Ceremonies kick things off in London, England. More than a billion people from across the globe will be watching the spectacle, named "The Isles Of Wonders".

Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle will be in charge of the ceremonies, whose credits include "Trainspotting" and "Slumdog Millionaire". The Opening Ceremonies will feature the traditional parade of nations and lighting of the Olympic Cauldron, which acts as the official start to the games. The ceremonies will also try to display Great Britain's culture on the world stage.

If you are looking to find a way to watch the Opening Ceremonies live, you are out of luck. While they start at 9 p.m. ET London time, around 4 p.m. ET, NBC will air the ceremonies on tape delay at 7:30 p.m. ET. There will also be no internet stream available in the United States, but there will be clips and highlights of the event on NBCOlypmics.com.
