TVTonic Olympics: Customize Your Olympic Event Viewing Using Windows Vista Media Center

olympics12(2).jpgWhile it's a bit of a disappointment the TVTonic Olympic plugin only works in the United States thanks to NBC's exclusive coverage of the 2008 Beijing Olympics, it looks to be a worthy installation if you want to customize your Olympic viewing schedule. When you install the plugin you get the regular TVTonic functionality that allows you to subscribe to "video podcasts" or web TV shows via RSS feeds, manageable through Vista Media Center. In a nutshell, it automates the collection of new web TV material you like and brings it all to one place where you can view it at your pleasure.

With the Olympics beginning August 8, Vista Media Center now has an Olympic icon under its Online Spotlight. With a simple installation of TVTonic Olympic, which only requires a remote, you'll be able to narrow down your Olympic viewing by sport and even by actual event. Because NBC typically covers the Olympics in 4 hours time slots, TVTonic Olympic can save you all kinds of time and allow you to watch your events of choice whenever you want.

The TVTonic Olympics plugin is free, so if you're a Vista Media Center user, live in the United States, and want a little control over your Olympic viewing you might as well give it a try.
