“Canadian TV Switch Displeases Americans,” reported the New York Times, in a story about how American viewers accustomed to watching CBC television are upset they no longer have an option to NBC games coverage.

because “they covered the Games as if they were about the athletes and
the competition, and not self-promotion of network personalities.”
