This marks the first time NBC Olympics has ever distributed live Olympic programming off of its own platforms.

The 2018 Winter Olympics are here and we've got all the details to help you binge on the hundreds of hours of NBC's live TV coverage as well as how you can stream live coverage online at NBCOlympics.com or through the NBC Sports App or via fuboTV.

The Olympic live stream will be available on the Snapchat app starting February 10, while the Context Cards will be available February 9. Its main goal is to provide coverage of key moments in big events during the Winter Olympics. Some of this special content will include alternative camera views, Olympic trivia, Team USA tracker, live leaderboards, behind-the-scenes information, and a performance tracker at the bottom of the stream. NBC has a financial interest in Snap's success, as it invested $500 million in the company during its IPO. BuzzFeed, meanwhile, is prepping daily Olympics stories for Snapchat similar to the coverage it provided during the 2016 Rio Olympics. To see them, viewers will need to swipe up on snaps that say "More".
