There's going to be extensive coverage and recordings here.
2010 Winter Olympics | Video, Schedules, Results, TV | NBC Olympics
http://www.nbcolympics.com/event-res...les/index.html

Far as I've seen, it looks like they all seem to go up to HD at 3.5 mbps when you full screen them.

It's pretty cool. It looks like a DVR sort of like the Windoes Media Center a little bit.

They might delay some "TV broadcast" live events however, I dunno.

Anyone see the ski jumping?
Video | Full replay: NH qualifying | NBC Olympics

Are those like little plants then have on the landing?
What are those for?

Yeah I saw those, I don't think they were plants, I saw one go flying when one of the jumpers landed so I think they were just some sort of debris on top of the snow.

And how cool was it that tons of flag bearers were snowboarders as well? Torah Bright was Australia's flag bearer.

Very sad indeed not the way you want to start the olympics. That video was crazy to watch hopefully they were able to put up more protection in that area.

Such a fan of the Olympics and really glad to see the love that snowboarding is getting this year!!

Condolences to family and friends of the luge rider that died, very sad. NBC could stop replaying the incident at any time in my opinion, think we all got the point.

GO OLYMPICS! What an amazing opening ceremony - best winter opening ceremony EVER. I might be a little biased though being a Canadian living in Vancouver. The city is in full-on party mode for the next two weeks, hype!

Definitely very somber to hear about the luger, they showed the actual crash on CTV here in Canada - literally made cringe, very hard to watch.

Is NBC doing the whole tape-delay thing again and showing nothing live like they did in Torino ?

The ceremony was good, but I about died laughing when they had their technical difficulties with the torch lighting. You could just see the look on Greztky's face as he stood there for that prolonged period of time. Priceless. Kevin Nash too. They all looked kind of irritated.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!
