    Awesome question! I see a few apps out there but I guess we won't know which ones are good until the games begin!

    "Winter Sports Live" seems to be about as close to official and professional as I've seen

    Just get a UStream viewer. I will be broadcasting it if my TV tuner will let me. My username on ustream is ttaylor0024

    Except for ttaylor's suggestion, no. NCB's idiotic management has decided that instead of capitalizing on people interest in watching in different places/formats, they are somehow trying to fight piracy, not really sure who pirates the Olympics, and how that would even affect them, and are only streaming curling and hockey. That's it. No wonder they're the only network ever expected to come away from the Olympics with a loss.

    2010 Winter Olympics on USTREAM: 2010 Winter Olympics. Other Sports

    I will be broadcasting it over ustream. Just download the ustream viewer app.

    A quick test of the app and I am happy to report after an afternoon of non stop cpu work, it all is in working order now. When you open the ustream app just search "2010 Winter Olympics"

    The stream will go live around 1p.m. central tomorrow, when the first games start... This is going to work for saturday and sunday, but then I will try to connect my actual TV tuner insted of my cap card to e able to not have my TV turned on to stream! :D

    Alright, no more stream. Someone reported this which makes me angry... Here is the email I got:

    I was just searching for you. That really sucks but thanks for trying to help everyone out.

    I find it sad that with all this technology in the world we are still subjected to the draconian tv business model.

    I was about 15 mins ago. When the person reported this, ustream removed my stream from search results...

    That really sucks...Thanks for trying!

    **EDIT**
    It is quite possible that no one reported you, just fyi. I'm sure NBC has someone dedicated to searching the net for unauthorized streams (or a bot or something), which really sucks. I will just use my slingbox to stream to my phone...Oh...Wait...We don't have a Slingbox app yet...DAMN IT! LOL

    I don't see the logic with taking it down. The video is available for free over the air. It's not like you're profiting from it. You'd think one of the olympic sponsers would have a live stream with their ads all over it.

    Orb works for streaming if you have a Tv tuner or webcam.
