T.V. Schedule (U.S.A. schedule in post #3)

Does anyone know that coverage will be like for the Olympics, especially in the U.S.?

Re: TV Schedules?

I was wondering about that too, what about the coverage of the tennis event in Germany?

Sport+ will cover the whole tennis event in France, as far as I know.

The Olympic Games: Where to watch
Tennis at Beijing Olympic Games 2008
The Olympic tennis event runs Aug. 10-17 and will be broadcast by NBC.

The bad news: Got time? You'll need it! Finding out when NBC broadcast's tennis is a three-step process that requires entering your zip code. It eventually leads to a page that lists every day of Olympic coverage for NBC and its siblings, including the Oxygen Network. Once you get there, you can view only one day at a time.

The better news: Once you find the day and the various tennis programming, you can click "Alert Me" for a reminder. For instance, first-round singles and doubles matches will be broadcast live on CNBC from midnight to 2 a.m. ET on Aug. 10--at least in zip code 10010.

The good news: The web coverage at NBCOlympics.com should be amazing, with live online video that allows you to view four events simultaneously, and live streaming audio by Tennis.com.

I read about that, too. This is pretty amazing. Same goes for the impressive US coverage.
Hopefully France 2 and France 3 will also have some live coverage, at least Clement/Llodra. Anyone who has the Beijing schedule for the french channels?

Here's the current schedule for Germany (in CET):

Sonntag 10.8. 4:00-7.30 ZDF Doku
Montag 11.8. 6.30-8.30 und 15.30-18.00 ZDF Info
Dienstag 12.8. 6.00-8.30 und 15.30-17.00 ZDF Doku
Donnerstag 14.8. 10.00-12.00 und 14.00-16.00 ZDF Doku
Freitag 15.8. 12.30-15.00 Eins Plus
Samstag 16.8. 11.00-11.45 und 15.15-16.30 ZDF Doku
Sonntag 17.8. 12.00-18.00 ZDF Info

But I expect (and hope for) many changes, anyways. It's probably better to take a look at the schedules for ARD/ZDF and their digital channels (EinsFestival, EinsPlus, ZDFdokukanal and ZDFinfokanal) one day prior to the respective matches. If you don't have a receiver, you're really missing out. And those channels are FTA (Free to air), so no Smartcard needed.

Re: T.V. Schedule

Hoping there will be a live stream, that doesn't have geographical restrictions, and one that I can record.

I'm almost certain that there will be no coverage of it at all in Australia considering that only Channel 7 and SBS have the rights to the Olympics, both free-to-air channels.

Fox Sports won't be showing any Olympics at all, let alone any tennis unfortunately.

Re: T.V. Schedule

Up to 15 livestreams on the site of France Télévisions.
http://sport.france2.fr/jeux-olympiques-2008/# (click on "Directs Vidéo).
Wonder if those will work with a Prox_y.

Anyone who tried the streams which they offered for RG?

Where can we watch the entire Olympic tourney?

With the Olympics coming up, is there anywhere (fee-based or otherwise) where we in the United States can watch the Olympic tourney in its entirety?

Thanks for the gutsy run, Phillies!!! World Series Champs...2010!!!
