Just guessing a bit here, but I think NBC will pretty much control when, what and how you can see the 2012 games in the US. They will stream a lot of stuff live on their web site, however the advertisers paid a lot of money for the broadcasts so I doubt there will be a lot of the more 'popular' games and matches there.

It's all about the money for these games, and NBC spent a lot for them. I doubt they will let much go for free (without ads).....
