[PLUG] Watching Olympic martial arts online in Linux?

Dear PLUGgers,

It seems that NBC has "gatekeeper" code that checks your user agent, so 
as to prevent Linux users (I'm Fedora 7, Firefox 2.x) from getting the 
events that REALLY matter (Mac and Windows Firefoxes appear to be let 
through). If it isn't just me, how did you guys get the judo 
matches/plan for the upcoming taekwondo matches via your Linux boxen?

Fishing around on Google reveals that the broadcast servers of other 
countries will not export to a US IP addy, as well as a discussion at 
in which one poster said that in the end, it really wasn't worth it.
