We're just a couple of days away from the opening ceremony and the Parade of Nations as the world prepares to watch the Winter Olympics. For the first time, NBC will air its evening coverage live across the country, meaning the broadcast that starts at 8 p.m. on the East Coast starts at 5 p.m. out West.
Perhaps more than anything, NBC's wall-to-wall coverage of the Olympic Games is a testament to the ways modern technology can unite people across the globe.
This year, for the Winter Games in South Korea, the network hopes to avoid a similar fate by selling commercials a new way: based on total viewers regardless of how they're watching.
Follow along with the colorful festivities from Pyeongchang with our live blog, and see below for all of the info on how to watch.
"We are looking forward to using the ChyronHego Mosaic XL2, the ChyronHego Mosaic Duo with Lyric PRO, and the ChyronHego PRIME Clips units in PyeongChang this coming February", said Paully. As for what else will be part of the feature, the coverage would also include two original shows from NBC Sports which are curated for Snapchat. Where to watch If you have a cable subscription, events can be viewed live and in primetime on TV through NBC and its affiliates.
With the rebranding of Universal HD as the Olympic Channel previous year, NBC acquired a second home on the cable dial dedicated exclusively to sports.
Snap says NBC will broadcast two- to six-minute live segments of key moments in sports such as figure skating and skiing. NBC is still selling commercials for the games as they begin this week. So whether a fan is following figure skating on the NBC broadcast channel or tuned into curling online, that person will count the same toward the audience NBC is promising to advertisers - and cost the same for a marketer to reach. He will co-host the ceremony on Friday night with Katie Couric, who makes her return to NBC. Eastern, daily - NBC will have still more skating and skiing, as well as biathlon, luge, bobsled and skeleton.
The Winter Olympics are knocking on our screens.
Snapchat will send notifications when live events are streaming, but users have to opt-in to receive them.
During the Rio Olympics in 2016, VR coverage typically wasn't live and required Samsung's Gear VR headsets with a Samsung phone.
The good news is that there is now a long list of streaming TV services that are affordable, require no lengthy commitment, will authenticate the NBC Sports apps, and offer an Apple TV app. Sign up with one of them and you can both test the service for a month and use your credentials to enable live streaming in the NBC Sports apps.
We're told that Kerrigan will bring her "unique perspective" to the tabloid television news magazine, providing "exclusive interviews and behind-the-scenes reports". You'll also have full access to scores, schedules and guides to understanding obscure events. For more competition-driven telecasts, turn to some of NBC's affiliate networks if you have cable.
