      They showed everything. They did not leave anything out.

      Unfortunately, they spent too much time talking about the Willard controversy as the male anchor took Willard's side while the female anchor disagreed.

      Plus, I am pissed that NBC didn't show one of my favorite new singers, Emili Sande and they barely showed my favorite group Arctic Monkeys.

    •  CBC doesn't have it this year (2+ / 0-)

      A consortium of private networks have broadcasting rights.

      They did OK last year - better than NBC, worse than CBC historically was. I assume they're still doing fine this year. Unfortunately, they're still blocking US IPs for their video. (I think they're required to do it because NBC has the 'exclusive rights' to ruin the Olympics for Americans.)

      There are a couple of sites where you can get relayed BBC coverage. Crappy resolution but better than nothing. Here's one:
