iPad streaming of Olympic simulcasts is good

I've been beating up on NBC's streaming of the Olympics, but, some things are working well. The video quality is good on an iPad and you can view simulcasts of the coverage on NBC stations like MSNBC, Bravo and NBC Sports Network as well as real time coverage.

The simulcasts are not typically real time and you may or may not like some of the enrichment commentary, but the running commentary adds a dimension to the coverage. It is more important in some events, like road cycling, where the action is hard to follow, than others.
