No Silverlight NBC Olympics for us
After the announcement at Mix of the NBC Silverlight Olympic streaming service I was looking forward to have a look at what had been created. Turns out you have to be in the USA to watch it, I assume due to media rights issues, a bit of a shame. I hope something can be worked out with a small fraction of the 2200 hours of content so we can all see what Silverlight can do for such a major event.
Back to the BBC Flash streams then............
ps. I suppose it is to be expected, you get the same problem with the TMS cricket coverage and other BBC Internet streams
