Olympic coverage

Email This Entry

Posted by Matt May

If, like me, you can't get enough of the XX Olympic Winter Games. Podcasting News has gathered a list of Olympics-related podcasts, including feeds from the AP, New York Times, and the US Olympic Team itself.

The online video coverage from NBC isn't bad -- but it's not portable, either. All of the media available is streamed, and unavailable outside the United States. It may be 2012 or 2014 before we can subscribe to portable video of a given sport, given the licensing restrictions that are in place. There's no doubt that the video is there. After all, nearly every country has cameras in Torino right now. But the IOC bureaucracy isn't very likely to understand the potential of the Long Tail for niche events like curling, equestrian, and distance running. Or for the tournaments (baseball, softball, basketball, hockey, soccer) that are too much to cover well on one network. Which is too bad, really. Especially for people like me.

Hope this doesn't come across as a shameless sales pitch.

You can also get your Olympic updates on your phone. Mobilcast is providing daily, and sometimes hourly, updates. We have a bunch of the ones you have on your list, as well as a daily medal update and a couple cool updates from Canada. It's all free content.
