NBC might not want you to watch the Beijing 2008 Olympics on the web, but this is a celebration of China, and what would your Olympics schedule be like without a little copyright violation?  Oooh, a low blow, yes I know: But this is the nation famous for manufacturing fake purses and even counterfeit cars.

If that's not reason enough, many Americans are upset that NBC's coverage will exclude some of the best parts of the Olympics.  In total, NBC's Olympics schedule will stream 2200 hours of tv: but much of that will be full of TV ads.  Plus there's the whole time zone difference.

Accordingly, Americans will miss the best of the 2008 Beijing Olympics.  Too bad:

UNLESS, you check out the ONLINE options for watching the full Olympics Schedule in the comfort of your own home.
