Scott Guthrie Keynote - 2 - Silverlight and the Olympics

Silverlight is a major part of the Olympics 2008 Site

2200 hours of live streaming coverage over 22 days. This, plus the 1100 hours of content on the 5 NBC broadcast networds, will be made available as Video On Demand.

Also, through Silverlight, you will be able to see live streamed coverage of all 34 sports. As part of the live coverage, you can

  • rewind and rewatch the stream
  • view pop-up alerts of other activities in other sports.
  • share link to the live coverage with others.
  • include picture in picture (PiP) of multiple sports
  • view multiple live streams of the same sports, even PiP

Very cool, especially if you're a fan of non-traditional sports. But I wonder if such a service will be available outside of the US.
