Many actual VPNs are somewhat cheaper, and just as simple to set up.
Of course, paying money to a third-party to watch BBC feels as insane and dumb as ever. You'd think that they'd start looking into overseas subscriptions at this point. Nevermind the IOC - why can't they offer anything on Pay-Per-View? Both are great alternative sources of income they're passing up, instead essentially encouraging piracy and sending money to third parties instead!

Why go through all that trouble?
Like movies in theaters I just ignore the hype and wait six months for either redbox or netflix to get it.
"The Directive requires EU countries to coordinate national legislation with each other so that […] major events – like the Olympics or football World Cup – are available to a broad audience, not just on pay-TV channels"
I would happily pay them for access, the problem is that being in the US I quite literally can't. If there was a "pay $50 for live steaming of the olympics" button I would click it happily, it just doesn't exist.
EDIT: I'm half serious, I wouldn't mind seeing Phelps lose, I missed it live. I'm an American, the NBC video website doesn't let me log in for some reason even though I have a valid account that worked yesterday (no error message, it just brings me back to the login screen every time), and they seem to be scrubbing YouTube quite well.
We should see a solution to that soon. http://techcrunch.com/2012/02/13/bittorrent-live/

MLB.com lets you subscribe and watch games online but Yankee games are blocked in NYC due to the team's exclusivity agreement with their own cable channel. I'm waiting for him to write a post about his solution (it involves both a VPN and an FM radio).
But Live streaming is also available on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/user/olympic .Why are you not using that? Isn't it accessible in US?
Enter bbc into the playlist box and voila.
