Yes, NBC has the rights for the Olympics. As of this week, they also have the broadcast rights for the next two World Cups as well. This will be welcome change from having to watch the second most popular sporting event in the world on my computer. I've been saying for over a decade that if a broadcast channel would take a chance on rugby, the American viewing public would love it. Look at the popularity spike of curling after the last Winter Olympics, and curling is nothing compared to rugby. It's about time the only sport played on every continent got some broader promotion in the USA.
