What did you think overall, not so much who won or lost but the Olympics as an event? I'd love to hear your opinions.

I didn't watch them.

I don't own a TV set.

I was interested in how you perceived the TV coverage. I am local and we got it all as it happened. All the stations owned by CTV were covering different events so if skiing was your thing, or speed skating or whatever you could turn to a station and see it live.

A friend of mine in California was getting the same kind of coverage from CTV and was equally amazed, but other people said NBC did the usual jumping around from event to event and artsy fartsy filming. In previous Olympics this is what would turn me off from day one so I never could get into them.

I am wondering if the CTV versus NBC difference coverage is always true as in local versus national. I'd never seen Olympic coverage I could follow before.

CTV is not an option for me so I cannot make a comparsion.
That said, for real sports fans, the CTV model would be preferable to letting NBC decide what you are going to watch.
For the US fans with a casual interest in the games I'm sure that NBC covered those events that would most likely interest / entertain them.

Enjoy the day. Back to the grind tomorrow.
