Why do you need to have a cable/satellite provider to watch the Olympics?

So this is a rant about the Olympics for all of those people out there like me that don’t subscribe to an cable or satellite provider. I’d rather have my 15 channels of HDTV that is broadcast for free, keep my money and pay for internet service.  Now, NBC is part of my HDTV, but MSNBC and CNBC are not.  Why should I be penalized for not paying over $100 for channels that show the same movies over and over again?  Here’s how it went down:

I logged on to NBC to see if I could catch women’s gymnastics and guess what? It asked me to enter my user name and password for my cable provider.  I don’t have one so I guess I won’t be watching online.  I think this was misleading and unfair.
