yes, thanks.

Now the only question is: will the internet video be available later as view-on-demand, or will it only be offered live? Sleep-deprived minds want to know...

No prob guys. I got tired of searching for the answer myself so figured this would help everyone. I really hope that internet coverage is all they crack it up to be. I checked it out last night for some of the Olympic soccer, but the game had already been played so not sure on the real time thing.

The quality was decent though. There might be hope.
