How to Watch the Olympics

U.S. Ski & Snowboard is heading to PyeongChang with one of its strongest teams ever. America's Olympic network NBC is planning 24-hour coverage across seven different platforms - the most Winter Olympic programming ever! For the first time ever, NBC will feature live streaming of every event at NBCOlympics.com and on the NBC Sports app. There will be more than 600 hours of broadcast coverage across the NBC network family including 160+ hours on NBC anchored by the nightly Primetime show with Mike Tirico. And for the first time ever, there will be no time delay across the United States for the evening Primetime show. Viewers will also be able to view past live streamed events on demand.

The U.S. Ski & Snowboard Team will also bring its fans supplemental coverage with U.S. Ski & Snowboard Studio featuring insightful interviews and behind the scenes action across each of the Team's social media channels.
