(by Jak Boumans): The Dutch public broadcaster NOS will webcast the Olympic games. For this, it is tying up with the Dutch incumbent telco KPN, where all ADSL subscribers to KPN services will be able to view the games on the KPN portal. The 2,000 plus hours of webcast will be complimentary.
On this portal, NOS will offer four TV channels simultaneously, plus the live broadcast. The four streams will not be accompanied by commentaries, but the user will hear background noise.
