Sport I woke up this morning and realised the Winter Olympics had started. I'm usually rabid for large inter-continental sporting events but it looks like this one is going to pass me by. It's also passing the internet by again, as the exclusive extended licensing of TV coverage has meant internet material is still reduced to mainly text sites without footage of the actual events. "The change is that the IOC is willing to stick its toe into the water and take a look at streaming video online," said Steve Klein, co-founder of "It's a breakthrough but it's a breakthrough that won't see any changes until 2008, when the IOC negotiates new contracts." How long?
