    I just wish someone (anyone) would broadcast the olympics live here in the States. I work nights so I could see a lot of olympics in the morning/early afternoon here.

    Good start to the games by Helen Glover and Heather Stanning. Looks like a potential gold right there.

    Don't you have any 24/7 sports channels in the USA, then? I thought you guys invented that kind of thing. Or are yours crammed top to bottom with "wrestling" (read: bad acting by neanderthals), like Eurosport tends to be these days?

    If you get BBC news24 you might get some on the red button, but that bbc I player is a good suggestion.

    There's plenty of live Olympics coverage. Flip around between NBC, CNBC, MSNBC and Bravo. There's live coverage 24/7.

    Edit: Plus there are a few live Olympics channels that suddenly spouted up (94 and 96 on Verizon Fios). That 6 stations (that I can find) currently running live coverage.

    I'd say that's plenty.

    Yes. No worries, though, perhaps there will be some jiggling in the closing ceremonies.

    As mentioned, the "wrestling" is on Eurosport. Don't wear it out.
