How can I watch whole Olympic basketball games online?

How can I watch whole Olympic basketball games online? I'm in Australia. Every search I do seems to turn up things that look a little like malware. Live and legal would be my first preference, but I don't mind if I have to download an entire game as an avi and watch it afterwards. Thanks!

If you can go through a UK-based proxy server, the BBC is what you need.

It's not pirated and it is live.

Does your ISP carry usenet binaries? (If you're with Internode, the answer is 'yes'.) If so, grab games from there.

Some of my friends are using Tunnelbear. It's a VPN that makes it look like you are on a UK server. Monthly-based subscription.

I have been using witopia as a proxy to the UK and it works very well for $6(US) per month. then you can just watch everything on the BBC iPlayer.

Just pointing out that most of the malware looking sites actually CAN stream the game to you, if you can mine your way through the crap. I use Chrome in incognito plugins set to click-to-activate. I then usually right click and hit Inspect Element and delete the non-flash-player iframes to remove all the crap on top of them and activate the stream Flash and it works. Might be a bit more than you bargained for, but it can definitely work.
