The BBC showed the opening ceremony of the 2008 Paralympics from Beijing on BBC HD this weekend, and are showing quite a lot of the events live in SD on BBCi Interactive, along with a daily highlights show, and more HD coverage at weekends.
Is anyone in the US showing this in SD or HD? Be interesting if it is HD on a non-NBC network, to see how the picture quality varies. AIUI much of the same coverage infrastructure (IBC etc.) is being used - albeit on a smaller scale?
AIUI China led the medals table in 2004, with the UK second (we started the Paralympic movement in the UK ISTR) - so there is quite a lot of UK interest. However ISTR that the US came 3rd - so there should be some US interest as well - albeit on a different scale to the main games?
