(Before I start: I don’t have Digital, Freeview or Cable, and I don’t want them either. We had Digital and got rid).
First, why does the BBC focus on a few sports almost to the exclusion of others? For example: swimming, we had coverage of nearly every single race, no matter how slim (and in most cases, non-existant) the chances of a British athlete winning a medal were, whilst we had two minute segments of other sports where we had a decent chance (double trap shooting, sailing etc.) on the Olympic headlines. It wouldn’t be as bad if there was anything remotely interesting in watching swimming races. It’s not as if you can argue that swimming is a far more exciting spectator sport than any other sport.
Secondly, what is up with the camera angles on the rowing coverage? Half the time the camera is aimed in such a way that it deceives you into thinking second or even third place is in the lead. They focus the camera on one boat for ages while the commentator is screaming about how one team is going to overtake another further down the rankings.
