But the footage will be highly restricted to protect lucrative broadcast contracts, which are sold by territory - $793 million paid by NBC alone. Web sites must employ technology to block viewers from outside their home countries, so U.S. Web surfers won't benefit from the BBC's live coverage. They'll have to settle for highlights posted after NBC broadcasts, which are already largely tape-delayed.

Yea, but I was talking more about the footage they chose to show. From what I've seen, it is most definitely geared towards Americans rather than an un-biased view of the Olympics at large.

I wish they had American Football in the Oylmpics I would watch that all the time. I know they have a European Football league but its got alot of Americans in it. There is not alot of World interest in the sport even though it is so fun to watch IMHO. That dosent stop America from putting a soccer team up in the Oylmpics
Too bad I will most likely never see it in my life tme.
