Coverage of the Winter Olympics from South Korea officially begins on NBC tonight! You’ve had to wait for a little while in order to see it, but there will be a chance to check out some of the first coverage of the big games in primetime coming up.
Just in case you are interested in learning just when it’s on — and what’s being featured — that’s something that we’re going to be highlighting throughout the Games. Tonight, for example, NBC will be broadcasting tonight figuring skating team competition to go along with men and women’s moguls. This is your introduction to the Games and, to go along with that, precisely how the network is going to be covering them. The Opening Ceremony and Parade of Nations is actually going to be taking place tomorrow, so you have to wait for a little while in order to see that event play out.
Tonight is also one of the last nights in which the major television networks are really braving to go toe to toe against the Games for a little while — there are new episodes of Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal airing on ABC while The CW does also still have episodes of Supernatural and Arrow coming in your direction. Meanwhile, Fox will be wrapping up The Four with what is going to be a very interesting finale given the exit of Charlie Walk amidst reports of sexual misconduct.
For all of you Olympics fans out there, this may rival Christmas as the most wonderful time of the year.
Live stream challenges
What makes watching events so difficult for Americans this year is that South Korea is literally on the other side of the world, and many events are going to be streaming at around the time most people are in bed. Tonight at 11:35 p.m. Eastern, you can check out curling if you are so inclined by heading over to the official live stream. You can check that out over here, but remember that you need to be able to validate your cable package.
