winterolympics_2010_nbcRemember Torino and its inconsistency as far as the HD quality went? Well, the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver promises to be a very different animal, and this time it is completely 100% HD from the start, including the cameras. We like the sound of that.

NBC will have tons of coverage planned, along with a VOD channel devoted to update metal counts, event results, etc. Do your news checking online? NBC is back with a new version of Microsoft’s Silverlight streaming, promising even more HD footage, and you can even fast forward and do other tricks with the coverage.

We like this news, as major networks gear up to give HD coverage of a major event the royal treatment.
