Figure-Skating Commentators Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir Are Serving Olympic-Level Shade, and Twitter Is Here for It

Why isn't Bob Costas hosting the 2018 Winter Olympics? However, if fans want to watch more than a half-hour of the games they'll need a subscription to at least one OTT TV service. You can also watch simulstreams of the NBC network and cable broadcasts in case you aren't in front of a TV. If wanted, users can add on the Olympic Channel for $10 more and CNBC for $5 more, bringing the total to $40 for all the channels. But, like DirecTV Now, YouTube TV and Fubo TV are limited in terms of market availability.

The NBC Sports app is available on Apple TV, Google Play, iTunes App Store, Roku Channel Store, Windows Store, Amazon Fire, select Samsung devices, and Comcast X1.

The longtime broadcast personality has hosted every Olympic Games on NBC - 11 Olympics, to be exact - since the Barcelona Summer Olympics in 1992, but he's been noticeably absent in the opening days of the network's first several days of coverage of the PyeongChang games.

The partnership includes what Snap calls "Context Cards", which contain details for the events like the schedule, medals awarded, and news coverage. These live moments will be featured on the NBC Olympics Discover page in Snapchat.


The experience will begin once a ride stars and can be accessed through a link to the NBC Olympics site via the Uber app.

The app, which received a $500 million investment from NBC in early 2017, will debut its new live streaming feature during the Olympics. Each Monday - Saturday at 4:30 p.m. on KGW, we'll have stories on our local athletes and other features before NBC's primetime broadcast.

NBCSN will present 369 hours of coverage, including live primetime and 10 days of 24-hour coverage from February 18-25.
