Great news from NBC -- we can all watch the November 3, 2007 men's Olympic marathon trials online, for free. To register for the broadcast, click here.
You can also watch the November 4 NYC marathon on-line, but that will cost you $4.99.
What does this mean for the 2008 Beijing Olympics? Hopefully, NBC will broadcast some or all of the Beijing Olympic events on the web. Then you can watch the events that interest you in their entirety (for a price, I'm sure), instead of waiting for 10-minute recaps on TV.
