No matter what sport you're into you'll be able to catch all the action. The big ones will be viewable in 3D.

NBC has expanded its Olympic coverage in a huge way. They haven't just added to the amount of events they're showing on TV – they're covering every event. Every single one. Anything you want to watch, you can watch streaming on NBCOlympics.com. They'll have around 3,500 hours of coverage, or nearly 150 days. Yeah, it's a lot.

3D fans will be able to enjoy themselves some Olympics too, thanks to a partnership with official TV sponsor Panasonic. The exact details haven't yet been revealed but the pairing plans to deliver 242 hours of 3D Olympic coverage, including gymnastics, diving, swimming, and the opening and closing ceremonies.

NBC says that 3D coverage will be available "to all U.S. distributors who carry Olympic coverage on cable, satellite and telcom." So pretty much everyone.
