NBC is partnering with Wavexpress to provide “Olympics On the Go.” Vista Media Center users will be able to subscribe to their favorite events and they will be downloaded automatically to their PCs or laptops through TVTonic.

The clips will be in “up to HD quality” (which most likely means that practically all of them will be 640×480 or less with a few of them in HD) and all of them will be free.

It’s a little frustrating that you will need to have a Vista PC to do this, I would love to get this same functionality on my Mac, but I guess the Olympics don’t think that Macs are good enough for their content (I’m sure they don’t think that but it’s fun to poke at companies who don’t seem to be doing the right thing).
