    I wanted to watch some of my favorites from the Games, but NBC Olympics has reformatted their website for the 2012 London Games. Does anyone know where else I can access videos?

    I bought the whole NBC TV skating coverage on i-tunes, very cheap ( something like $4.99).
    If you search " figure skating", it'll come up.

    The last videos in "Figure skating" playlist.
    But they don't have men's LP and ladies.

    I bought mine off of Amazon Video. There were $1.99 or so per discipline and you can downoad them and save them to your computer. It plays through Windows Media Player and works great.

    I used iTunes and it works really well! Thanks, though, for all of your help. :)

    I think it's great they have their own channel but they said the content is blocked in my country :mad:

    Did anyone actually record all of the Olympic skating? Because I was there for the whole three weeks, it was impossible to set everything to record while I was gone. I would pay for the DVDs and shipping. I would really prefer Canadian coverage, but it's not necessary. :)

    Wow, that's still pretty impressive coverage. I got the CTV box set (all sports not just skating) and their coverage was pitiful. They didn't even show full programs of all the Canadians, never mind skaters from other countries. :wall:

    I still have a lot of stuff sitting un-edited on my DVR (since I was waiting for the DVDs to come out) ... but that's a really good price for the downloads so I think I might go that route instead. Thanks for the info! Of course it might be geoblocked ...

    I've mentioned this before, but the coverage on that box set pissed me off so much, I fired off a nasty email to CTV. How could you issue a beautiful box-set like that and not bother to show the whole Opening and Closing Ceremonies...including the parade of athletes. :mad: :wall: I really feel like sending it back, except the Men's Gold Medal Hockey Game is on there, and I want to keep that. :p
