It will kick off a record 2,800 hours of Olympics coverage from February 2-20 across U.S. rightsholders NBC and its network siblings USA Network (400 hours of coverage planned beginning February 2) and CNBC (80 hours planned). Coverage is also available at NBCOlympics.com and the NBC Sports app via authentication (2,100 hours planned) as well as on the Peacock streaming service, which is ramping up from its Tokyo debut and will air every event from all 15 sports live in real time via its premium tier as well as offer full replays.

NBC’s main coverage launches its primetime coverage on Thursday, February 3, with live team figure skating getting underway along with men’s and women’s moguls, leading into the Opening Ceremony on Friday live in the early morning (6:30 a.m. ET) and again in primetime (5 p.m.; encore at 8 p.m.; replay at 12:38 a.m. PT Saturday). Mike Tirico from Beijing and Savannah Guthrie from New York will anchor the coverage.

In all, NBC will broadcast almost 200 hours of coverage across 18 nights of primetime live across all U.S. time zones beginning at 8 p.m. ET (7 p.m. ET on Sundays); Tirico is hosting the first week, and Maria Taylor the second. With NBC Sports Network no more, USA Network will offer 24/7 live coverage as the Games’ cable home, with CNBC picking up the coverage after its market programming, led again by curling and international hockey.

(Tirico, by the way, will attempt to pull off the rare double of hosting the Olympics and the Super Bowl pregame show on the same day — both events are on NBC this year. The plan calls for him to fly to Los Angeles after his hosting duties Thursday, February 10, host the Olympics on Friday, February 11 from a set outside SoFi Stadium, then host the primetime Olympics show Saturday night followed by hosting NBC’s five-hour Super Bowl LVI Pregame Show on Sunday. He’ll then host Sunday night’s Olympic competition.)

Beijing is 13 hours ahead of the Eastern U.S. time zone and 16 ahead of Pacific time zone, meaning lots of live coverage options in primetime as well as during NBC’s Primetime Plus, which returns to follow late local news in most time zones. All will be live on Peacock via its premium tier.
