It’s Alive-Stream: NBCU Plans Record 1.8K Hours Of Live Stream For Winter Games

By Barry Janoff

November 16, 2017: NBCUniversal has unveiled another key component of its coverage for the 2018 Olympics, planning what it said was a Winter Games record 1,800 hours of live-streaming from South Korea.

In addition, NBUC said the competition from PyeongChang would be the first Winter Games to offer live streaming of the NBC broadcast network, including prime time and prime time-plus programming.

NBC Olympics said it streamed 1,000 hours of coverage for the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics, which was the first time that all Winter Olympic competition was streamed live.

NBC Olympics plans to live-stream coverage that airs on all five NBCUniversal Olympic networks — broadcast network NBC and cable channels NBCSN, CNBC and USA, as well as the 24/7 news and highlights coverage airing on Olympic Channel: Home of Team USA.

“Our most comprehensive digital offering ever is specifically designed to satisfy modern Olympic viewers, who expect to watch their programming wherever and whenever they want,” Rick Cordella, evp and GM-Digital Media for NBC Sports Group, said in a statement.

“Whether it’s at home or on the go, live or VOD, on desktop or app, our unprecedented digital coverage will raise the bar for super-serving fans.”

Plans for digital coverage include live streaming of all competition on NBCOlympics.com and the NBC Sports app across desktops, mobile devices, tablets, and connected TVs for authenticated users; TV simul-stream coverage of five television networks; streaming on connected TVs (also a Winter Games first) and an enhanced viewing experience for select sports.

In addition, Olympic viewers will be able to access three digital-only programs, live streams of practices, and an active news desk that will regularly publish Olympic updates throughout each day.

NBCOlympics.com and the NBC Sports app will offer “extensive video-on-demand coverage, including athlete profiles and features, full-event replays and short-form highlights.”

NBC Olympics will produce three digital-only programs, a social-focused video franchise and a news desk that “provides regular updates during the Games for NBCOlympics.com and the NBC Sports app.”

Gold Zone will stream daily from (Noon—2 PM ET), providing a “condensed review of the recently concluded competition day.”

The digital-exclusive version of Olympic Ice will offer a comprehensive post-competition review of figure skating news and highlights taking place each day.

Off the Post, a live hockey studio show following each day’s final game, includes a “full review of the men’s and women’s tournaments, with highlights, interviews, analysis and previews.”

The Winter Games are scheduled for Feb. 9-25, 2018.
