Winter Olympics will air live

Whether in NY or Los Angeles, all US viewers will be able to watch Team USA compete at the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea, live for the first time.

The NBC and Comcast logo are displayed on top of 30 Rockefeller Plaza, formerly known as the GE building, in midtown Manhattan in New York July 1, 2015. "This is exciting news for the audience, the advertisers, and our affiliates alike". "If they can afford it, the one-two combination of the Super Bowl and four days later the Olympics is pretty unbeatable", he said.

Recent Winter Olympics have been preceded by the question of whether National Hockey League players will take part, with negotiations often continuing right up to the eve of the event.

The 2018 Winter Olympics will be held in Pyeongchang, South Korea, which is 13 hours ahead of the East Coast and 16 hours ahead of the West Coast.

For recent Olympics, NBC broadcasted all events through official online streams, but stubbornly insisted on tape delays for televised broadcasts of the games.




Bell believes the Olympics are among those appointment events, and the time zone for Pyeongchang will aid NBC's live prime-time plans.

Mr. Lovinger said NBCU's deal with Snapchat was struck too close to the Rio Games to fully capitalize on advertising opportunities. A dedicated BuzzFeed team on location in Pyeongchang will co-produce that content.

A move that Seattle Olympics fans have been waiting for is finally happening - live TV coverage that is actually live. That would exceed the social ad revenue from the Rio Olympics.

For the first time ever, the network will offer Olympic coverage live across all time zones. In response, the network has loaded as much live coverage as possible into the prime-time hours of 8 to 11 p.m., when the most TV viewers are available to watch.
