Winter Olympics 2018 Live

NBC will once again broadcast the Winter Olympics. Despite the huge difference in time zones between the South Korea and the US, it will live stream 1,800 hours of the Olympics. These will also be the first Winter Games to offer a live stream online of what NBC is currently broadcasting on TV.

On TV

NBC will offer live broadcast coverage across its networks. In addition to your local NBC channel, you’ll be able to watch Olympic events on cable channels NBCSN, CNBC, USA and the Olympic Channel.

Live streaming online

Each and every Winter Olympic event will be available to stream live and on-demand on NBCOlympics.com on computers via the NBC Sports app on phones, tablets and connected TVs. (The NBC Sports app is available for iOS or for Android as well as the Amazon Fire, Apple TV ($179.00 at Apple), Comcast X1, Chromecast, Roku, Windows 10 ($149.00 at Amazon.com), Xbox and select Samsung devices.)

The catch is that you will need to prove that you are pay TV subscriber to access the live streams. Without authentication, you will be able to stream 30 minutes of coverage on your first visit and five minutes each day after that. Authentication is a drag, but then again, NBC did shell out $4.38 billion for the rights to broadcast the four Olympic Games from 2014 to 2020.
