Olympics in HD?
I'm a wee bit perturbed at NBC. After a summer-long promotion of the Olympic experience in high-definition, it's a definite disappointment. The pictures are great, the aerial views of Greece are stunning, and the action is very alive and real. But it's all a day late. What's up with that? I know that most of what we see will be tape-delayed, but c'mon - why can't you simulcast what's happening on one of the other channels of "the Networks of NBC"? Meanwhile, CBS had the PGA Championship in HD in real time all weekend, and ABC had the MNF game last week in both formats.
I guess NBC's still hurting from the end of Friends and Frasier. Geesh.
