Are you psyched up about the Olympics, which starts this weekend, with the opening ceremonies getting underway tonight? They sort of snuck up on me. I get more and more interested as the games go on. This year the television and online coverage will be unprecedented. In fact, it will be total.
Oklahoma sports columnist Mel Bracht reports that NBC and its affiliates will broadcast 5,535 hours of coverage. Compare that to 161 hours in the 1992 Barcelona games. The Olympics will be on NBC, NBC Sports Network, CNBC, MSNBC, and Bravo. (Check the link below for what each network will concentrate on.)
But most impressive will be NBCOlympics.com. This site, for the first time ever, will livestream EVERY Olympics event. And if you get your internet service bundled with a cable or satellite TV service, this access will be FREE.
