beijing-08.jpgAs 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.

  1. Hi felos how are you i would like to say that the olympics will be superb and it will be a great excitmement in China Beijing and i look forward to see malaysia win because i live in malaysia GO MALAYSIA!!!!!!!!!!!11

  2. I was really looking forward to this, the 2008 Olympics.
    I wish all the participants good luck !
    And come on Sri Lankans! Let’s encourage the athletes from Sri Lanka to do their very best and bring credit to our motherland.

  3. Now that Russia has taken the liberty of invading Georgia whilst the world is caught up in watching the Olympics opening ceremony, we should see all video screening and coverage of the ceremony interrupted to show what Russia is doing. Athletes should quit the Games and refuse to participate unless Russia is kicked out.

    The 2008 Olympic games are a mockery of the concept.

  4. The olympics are somthing to really look forward to.

    I styed up till’ after 1 am and I was as snippy as oscar the goruch and then they replayed it again on Saturday morning.

  5. I am outside the U.S. in Nicaragua and cannot access the internet or highlight versions of NBC. Is there another provider offering live coverage/highlights that we can watch outside the U.S.?

  6. Im in the UK and trying to stream the olympics from the NBC site. However I have found that to be able to stream you have to be a US resident. I tried using the BBC iPlayer but it lacked in comparison to the US coverage i witnessed during my short stay their a few days ago. I wonder if there will be the possibility of NBC and ABC and other US broadcasters ever managing to get their free streams made available outside of the US.

  7. Prior to 8-8-08 NBC Today talked about the weather, and protection from the sun people used ‘umbrellas’. Wake up folks,
    those are called parasols!
    With all those wonderful sports, and we see so few of them.

  8. Today Show hosts in talking about the weather, they referred
    to protection from the sun, and they called them umbrellas.
    Parasols is the correct word.
    We would like to have more coverage of all the sports and all the countries participating. Did love the opening, except for the
    continuous returning to the USA members after they walked in.

  9. Track and Field is one of the hall marks of Olympic competition, and you have none!?

  10. Track and Field is one of the hall marks of Olympic competition, and you have no programming for it!?
