    NBC is too biased towards USA athlete reports! Not enough coverage of Olympians from other nations.

    The BBC Olympics app has been removed from the US iTunes store.  It is only available on the UK iTunes store… you need a different account to buy from the UK store.  Did NBC ask apple to throw the BBC App off the US Store???

    Its a great App…. I downloaded a week before the games started.  Now it has been removed from US store.
