I'm thinking that NBC has their own feed coming from over there. Because the UK stream is also H264. So I don't think it is being transcoded on the fly.

I was under the impression that the feeds out of the UK are at 50 fps at 1080i. Wouldn't that cause a degradation in PQ compared to the 60 fps you'd get out a US broadcast?
I will say the NBC soccer and basketball olympic channels do look pretty bad compared to the other NBC feeds.

Just an FYI: NBC is using frame rate converters for its feeds to the US. http://www.live-production.tv/news/products/snell-provide-alchemist-phc-hd-and-mach-hd-standards-converters-nbc-olympics.html
