Right, and since most of it is tape delayed coverage, they can pick and choose when they want the matches in each block. Hopefully they won't just shove clips of match points into the middle of some horrendous boxing coverage, but....

Thank you!
Not a ton of it, but at least its not just in the middle of a block. It seems we'll get full matches at times.
Can't wait! But isn't NBC streaming from their website every sport, too?

Here in australia, we have 2 Free-to-air channel showing the olympics non-stop and all we get is the men's final. If there was an aussie in contention they would probably shot that but the chance of that happening :lol:

In Poland there will be five channels showing Olympic Games - TVP1, TVP2, TVP Info, TVP Sport and TVP HD so there is a chance that they will broadcast whole matches, not only parts.

There will be also a live streaming on the site - pekin.tvp.pl. There will be a channel showing tennis, table tennis and badminton. But I don't know if people from abroad could watch it.

RTS Serbia showing all matches of Serbian players. I'm sure they'll find a way to do the same at the Olympics as well.

seems like a pretty decent TV coverage in US.
although i might busy watching basketball, gymanastics, football, swimming and possible some badminton and atheletics
more than tennis.

i might catch a match or so on TV.
