NBC Olympics dissolves time delays

Primetime will see the end of tape delay during NBCUniversal’s coverage of the XXIII Olympic Winter Games from PyeongChang as the company announced that – with more than 2,400 hours of coverage slated for the event – all primetime coverage will run live across all time zones for the first time ever. Programming begins in primetime on Feb. 8, at 8p – one night before Opening Ceremony coverage– and continues until the Closing Ceremony on Feb. 25. 

 

Platform assignments will include: NBC (176 hours), NBCSN (369), CNBC (46), USA Network (40.5) and NBCOlympics.com/NBC Sports app (1,800+) with NBC’s schedule divided into three dayparts – daytime, primetime and primetime plus – for a total of 176 hours over 18 days – with daytime coverage launching at 3p on Feb. 10, highlighted by speed skating, ski jumping, cross country, biathlon, and luge. NBC will also serve as the exclusive home of alpine skiing during the PyeongChang Olympics with 11 of 18 nights of primetime featuring live alpine skiing, while figure skating will be prominently featured during NBC’s primetime coverage, airing on 12 of 18 nights.

 

“There will be more live hours of Winter Olympics coverage in PyeongChang than ever before, and for the first time at a Winter Games, NBC will broadcast live across all time zones to the entire country, creating a unique national collective experience for this event – and we will be everywhere – from broadcast and cable television, to digital streaming and social media.” said Jim Bell, President, NBC Olympics Production and Programming. “The Games will once again provide a positive example of the world coming together in spirited competition and offering a message of unity, peace, and hope.”
