As most of you who have been dwelling on this planet for at least the last four years will already know, the next Olympic Games are being held in Beijing.
This time around however one of the main events seems to be broadband video as there will be blanket coverage of the entire event (yes the whole thing, even the Beach Volleyball) courtesy of NBC Universal.
Of the 3600 hours of coverage planned 2200 of them will be streaming live online over the internet. There are also plans currently being firmed up to provide some wireless coverage that will be unveiled officially some time before the event.
Because of the time differences, for many Olympic enthusiasts, these broadcasts will be in the middle of the night. Still, it’s nice to know that those of us in the western hemisphere will at least have the opportunity to catch our favorite events live.
