Why are HD broadcasts at 720

(I could have some misconceptions regarding my question, so if so help me clear up my initial incorrect assertions.) It seems if most, if not all HD network broadcasts are 720p rather than the higher resolution 1080p. Why? Networks won't upgrade their cameras/transmission facilities? I spoke to my cable provider (Telus) and they assured me they could transmit higher resolution signals but the networks only provide them degraded quality feeds. Are there any networks that broadcast the higher quality signal?

Is there such a thing as a "broadcast quality" consumer camcorder?

I recently became involved with a local television station and I'm looking to invest in a "broadcast quality," consumer camcorder. Is there even such a thing? Or should I penny up for something in the prosumer range?

How can I find out Olympic event scheduling without seeing the results simultaneously?

OlyFilter - Is is just me or is it downright impossible to find out when (and on what channel) a particular Olympic event is going to be on television without finding out the results? In this age of tape-delayed television, but with non-tape-delayed internet results, what is a man to do? Specifically, I want to watch all the Mens Basketball games that are on TV. Anyone have a list? I know there is a game on today (I think at three...) but I'm afraid to look for it online fearing spoiling the results.
