NBC will broadcast more than 3,600 hours of coverage of the 2008 Beijing Olympics on multiple television networks and the Internet.Wow. That's a pretty big gamble there NBC, and I can pretty much guarantee this...since Beijing is 12 hours behind us...this isn't going to work. Good luck though. I'll see you in London for the 2012 Olympics.
The bulk of that will come online, the first time live streaming broadband video of the Olympics will be available in the U.S., NBC Universal Sports & Olympics chairman Dick Ebersol said Tuesday. The 3,600 hours of coverage are more than the combined total of every previous Summer Games televised in the U.S.
