    My understanding is that airplay is blocked on the nbc app.

    I don't think they can block when you are mirroring. Of course, you end up mirroring the iDevice dimension on screen so you will have some black bars.

    This morning I watched men's luge and alpine skiing via Airplay from my iPad. I didn't have to mirror.

    That's good to know. Haven't actually tried using the iPad yet. Just been watching NBC regular broadcast.

    Yes I was. Oddly enough my iPhone 5 didn't work as well as my iPad 2. I couldn't get more than about 15 minutes at a time using my iPhone. It would either disconnect or freeze. I also had to set the iPhone screen to never sleep otherwise it would stop the stream. With my iPad however I am able to watch close to two hours uninterrupted.
