NBC to Broadcast Winter Olympics in HD, 5.1 surround


Dolby is kind enough to let us know that if any figure skaters should happen to be clubbed in the kneecap, we will be able to hear their plaintive wails in full 5.1 surround sound. I certainly hope the Winter Olympics broadcast is better than the Summer Olympics.

While it was very high quality, it was worthless because it was a day behind. Yeah I watched every moment of it in on both broadcasts thanks to my dual tuner DVR because I'm an addict. However, if I want to see two men in tights lay down on top of each other and slide down a hill I'll go see Brokeback Mountain then I should be able to see it live and in HD.
