FuboTV to stream NBCUniversal's entire Olympics coverage package

Adjust Comment Print

Just snippets. But NBC is very protective of its video rights around the Olympics and doesn't usually stream them anywhere besides NBC-owned properties. He's in line to take over NBC's Sunday Night Football coverage when Al Michael retires, but for now he'll settle for the Olympics, along with other high-profile NBC gigs. Figure skating will air live in prime time on 12 of the 18 nights, and skiing will be shown live 11 nights. And finally, you could download the Team USA App, which offers information about us athletes and even includes a minigame for the sports sensation that's sweeping the nation, curling.

NBC Universal will be the first to use it to broadcast snippets of competition from the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea.

The Winter Olympics are knocking on our screens. There's also the dead-simple official Olympics app, though it doesn't seem to offer any video. This year, NBCUniversal is expected to live-stream and broadcast a record 2,400 hours across NBC and its other channels including NBC Sports, CNBC, USA, and The Olympic Channel. As part of the collaboration, which has been described as a first of its kind deal, NBC Olympics will produce exclusive "in-car" interviews for Uber riders. Numerous marquee events including figure skating and alpine skiing will happen during NBC's live primetime coverage (5 p.m.to 11 p.m. most nights). For those who can't get to a TV, NBC will stream the broadcast at NBCOlympics.com and the NBC Sports app.

The games will also be available on NBC's websites and Apps, but users will need their credentials from either their pay-TV service or OTT TV service.

NBC's streaming coverage is unavailable outside of the United States and its territories.

I cut the cord already.

For the most part, access to an online TV service - one that streams numerous channels you'd get from a cable subscription - will also let you use the NBC apps for streaming and VR. Unfortunately, majority require a subscription, but luckily for consumers, no contract is required for most OTT TV services making it easy to cancel after one month if they're interested in the service for just the Olympic games. You'll be able to see chosen highlights, covering the most important moments all in one place. Additionally, many online TV services offer a free seven day trial.

Not all of these subscription services are available in every region, and some restrictions may apply as to what you can see.

So how do you go about tuning in on your Apple devices?
