Have found lots of conflicting info on whether there will be any HD coverage of the Olympics on Bravo HD. My local NBC affiliate, KRON4, was dumped by NBC for airing too much of their own productions so now I have no OTA NBC at all. Judging by the recent Salt Lake City coverage, they may have a 2yr tape delay. This would allow enough time to edit-out any skating scandals. ;)

We are all hoping for Bravo HD coverage. The information is not clear yet.

Thanks, will keep my fingers crossed. It looks like I may have found a new use for that old VCR collecting dust. Just need to connect it at a friend's house who has both cable and NBC...

The word (rumor/indication) is NBC may be yanking some or all of it from Bravo in fear of being upstaged. Can you believe that? More concerned about NBC ratings than presenting the best coverage with Bravo. They may also make it PPV.

PPV? NBC learned its lesson on that from the Triple Cast fiasco.
