Silverlight gets NBC 2008 Beijing Olympics

After rumors of getting desperate about the dismal rates of Silverlight adoption by consumers and developers, Silverlight got a break: NBCOlympics.com.

TechCruch remarks:

This is good news for Microsoft and their nascent Silverlight platform. What I want to know is how much Microsoft paid NBC to use this. It’s highly unlikely they chose it without an additional nudge. Testing a new platform at the Olympics carries significant risk. And since no one really uses Silverlight yet, this will require millions of people to download the Silverlight framework before they can use the advanced features of the site.
