Obama's inauguration was broadcast direct on 12 (of 39) channels here. You had the choice of hearing it in English, castellano or el català. I thought it interesting that during the Rick Warren invocation, TVE had the caption that he opposed gay marriage.

Obama's speech was OK, if a bit long. I noticed the "coded messages" like the importance of the "rule of law". At least he didn't have any "um"s. We'll see how his words translate into deeds in the next few days.

CNN had similar text during Warren's invocation, as well.
