    Ultrasurf is free. You can download it from Ultrareach's site.

    Yes, it's great, not only you can watch the matches live, you can also
    watch all the previous matches that were steamed.

    How did you get 2 streams? Is it one using Firefox and another using IE?

    I haven't been online for the live badminton broadcasts, and the archived videos turn up jerky when captured via WM Capture. Will keep trying, but someone actually based in the U.S. might have better luck.

    Apparently NBC is paying a whooping US$900 million for the U.S. broadcast rights of the 2008 Olympics and they are doing an impressive job so far.

    Love NBC and its badminton broadcast. It's clear and without commentary (which I prefer, unless it's Gillian). The instant replays are clear and accurate. It's just a great job by NBC, kudos!

    Ultrasurf or any anonymous US proxy should work from Indonesia.

    It appears that Silverlight decides this all on its own. I can't find any controls at all.
