    I know, I think my point is that none of the big networks care to show the games, is ESPN showing them? how about indoor Volleyball?
    Fox Sports shows some tourneys.

    I think the reason the objections don't surface much for the Olympics (though they DO in fact surface) is that the uniforms are somewhat optional - full body uniforms can be worn (and often are if it is cold, like in the London venue).
    I need to correct this a bit - the US v Spain beach volleyball was on while I was working out and I happened to catch them discussing uniforms. In fact the official uniforms CANNOT be larger than a certain size - special dispensation was made for the Olympics due to Muslim countries and due to the potential weather issues.

    the last quarter by Russia vs. Brazil - impressive.
    i guess one should be expecting something like this since Brazil underachieves all the time, but still...

    I still can't find a way to watch Olympic basketball. Its on during the day when I'm at work, so I was gonna DVR it. Yeah that ain't happening. I don't know how your cable provider there in Indy is, but my cable company here (Cox) has the Olympics programs set up in huge blocks, like 6:00 AM to 4:00 PM with all the different events combined into one program. That's too much to record, my DVR doesn't have enough space. And my cable companies programming info sucks so there is no way to figure out what specific time the basketball games are.

    I was able to figure it out using NBC's Olympics site, which also sucks, is hard to navigate, and slow as all hell. I did eventually find the time slot (2:15pm to 4:15pm). But my cable company's crappy DVR controls won't allow me to record just that specific time block of the 12 hour program, at least not the online controls. I can't believe it is 2012 and its this friggin' hard to watch the Olympics. I'm totally disappointed in the coverage so far.

    Oh an apparently there is some sort of Specialty Olympic Soccer and Specialty Olympic Basketball channels that are out there somewhere, it is even mentioned on my cable providers website. But I can't find anywhere what the actual station numbers are for these channels. This is just ridiculous...

    If you have digital cable look for them in the way upper channels where the PPV movies and on demand channels are. That is where i found mine.

    And regarding the Olympics coverage, I agree the coverage has been bad, not only that but the games I really want to watch are not on tv and they rather show freaking water polo and cycling.

    Even the soccer channel would rather show freaking China and Japan instead of Brazil or Spain.

    Russia took a ton of bad shots early in the clock when they were up. Should've been a blowout.

    Brazil needs to do some soul searching. They aren't using Nene. They are stretching the floor and playing Kobe ball all the time. It's a fine option since they have a couple wild quick guys, but it shouldn't be the main option given their overall talent. It feels like the Donnie Warriors.

    Use your DVR search function to look for "basketball"? That might give you a list of channels.

    Dang I'm bummed I'm missing all this great stuff. I would describe my Olympic viewing so far as this:

    90% gymnastics, diving, swimming, beach volleyball
    10% mostly everything else
    0% archery, equestrian, shooting, martial arts, fencing, badminton, handball, tennis

    I literally haven't seen one minute of ^ those events...NBC sucks
