A Signature Moment: The Olympic Winter Games 2018
The Olympic Winter Games are here, and as our hometown heroes take to the world stage, we will deliver the most mobile, live and advanced viewing experience in history. This year, we are also an official partner of Team USA and proud to support an amazing group of athletes with inspiring stories – like Rico Roman, a Purple Heart recipient and U.S. Paralympian.
Bringing the Games home to America is one of our company’s highest honors. It’s also one of our best opportunities as we collaborate across Comcast NBCUniversal to create something truly unique. This winter in PyeongChang will be no different, as we combine the incredible storytelling of NBCUniversal with the technology of Comcast to try and redefine the modern-day viewing experience.
For the first time, NBCUniversal will bring every moment live across time zones—more than 2,400 hours of coverage across 102 events. We will also provide access to content in new ways through VR, 4K, and live on Snapchat. No matter the platform, our NBC team, led by our new primetime host Mike Tirico, will bring all the action plus the heartwarming stories we’ve come to love.
And the best way to watch the Games is on X1. We’ve once again created an unparalleled experience that integrates NBCUniversal’s live, on demand, and online streaming content into a dashboard on X1, and across platforms with Xfinity Stream. X1 will also feature athlete profiles, real-time stats, and 50 Olympic virtual channels, enabling viewers to focus on the events and athletes they care about most. And it’s all easily searchable with the X1 voice remote.
We are proud and humbled to support our athletes and hope to bring you closer than ever before to Team USA and to the unforgettable moments that are sure to come in PyeongChang.
