    This site may help, then again, it may not. They say "Extensive hockey coverage" but looks like mostly the US team.

    I remember seeing the Ferraro twins on the cover of USA Weekend magazine over a decade ago. I was like, I'll bet these guys are gonna be really good one day.

    Last winter olympics there was plenty of hockey coverage -- not just US, even teams without a chance in hell of winning anything. If they're increasing their coverage hours, I'm sure they'll be covering plenty of hockey on USA and CNBC like they said. And both those channels are standard cable pretty much everywhere.

    In '02, the entire preliminary round (with Switzerland, Latvia etc) was shown in its entirety on CNBC.

    Here's the day-by-day schedule for Olympic TV coverage. It looks like they'll be showing most every game, except when there are two games being played at the same time, they'll just be showing one of them I guess.

    My biggest disappointment...having to get up at 7 am CT on a Sunday for the gold medal game :cry:
