The 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics are underway in South Korea, and the world’s most daring athletes on ice and snow are focused on bringing home gold. Viewers won’t miss a minute of competition, as NBCUniversal presents more than 2,400 hours of coverage from the PyeongChang Games across NBC, NBCSN, CNBC, USA Network, NBCOlympics.com and the NBC Sports app. NBC’s primetime Olympics coverage will be live in all U.S. time zones, ensuring viewers coast-to-coast can watch simultaneously, even with South Korea being halfway around the world. “Contrary to popular belief, the 14-hour time difference works really great for live primetime coverage,” says Jim Bell, president of NBC Olympics Production & Programming. “That’s right when many of the marquee events — figure skating, alpine, snowboarding — will be taking place.”
