NBA has announced all of the men's and women's Olympic basketball games will be aired live from Beijing. That includes NBC, NBC HD, USA, USA HD, MSNBC, CNBC and Telemundo, while additional basketball coverage can be found on the NBC Olympic Basketball Channel.

"USA Basketball is thrilled that our fans in the United States will be able to follow all the action as both of our teams strive for Olympic gold," said USA Basketball President Val Ackerman. "NBC's airing of not only all of USA Basketball's games, but each and every Olympic basketball game, is a testament to how global the game has become and to the tremendous following our sport commands among viewers everywhere."

The NBC Olympic Basketball Channel will be available on most major cable, satellite and telephone companies and distributors. The channel will feature complete tip-off to final buzzer coverage of all 76 games (38 men's games,

38 women's games) in the Olympic basketball tournament in spectacular high definition. Additionally, NBC will feature live streaming broadcast coverage of men's and women's basketball games.

Each of the USA's contests will air live, with rebroadcasts featured on at least the NBC Olympic Basketball Channel. NBC is also planning on airing each of the USA's medal round games live and both the men's and women's gold medal contests will air on NBC and NBC HD.

According to NBC, the schedule is subject to change. For the latest Olympic TV schedule information, fans should go to NBCOlympics.com for the most updated television listings.

Oh, and remember - live from Beijing means nine hours later than the US west coast, but a day later. So, if the game is 7 p.m. local time on the 10th, it will tip off at 4 a.m. in Los Angeles and 7 a.m. in New York City, but on the 9th. Might be easier just to check your local listings.
