From what I have seen of american coverage, and because it is edited, it only focuses on American athletes. Which is fine but other coverage is blocked. How many people in the US have access to CBC Newsworld International or BBC for example?
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.
