Maybe you should ask your cable/satellite provider to carry Canadian channels? It's on CBC right now and looking pretty good. Sadly, I have to go to work in a few minutes.
NBC has an iron-clad contract with the Olympic games that restricts all Olympic coverage in the US to them. You can't even legally stream video to the US of the Olympic games.

I've thought about going up to the Canadian border to see the CBC Olympics coverage but it just isn't practical for two weeks.
Try http://www.cbc.ca/olympics/livevideo/ You can adjust the schedule for your own time zone.

I really wish they would've shown the Opening Ceremonies live....
I saw them live on CBC. The Canadian athletes got a nice reception from the crowd.

It will be interesting to see how the US athletes are greeted. I wouldn't be surprised if we were cheered or booed.
