NBCUniversal’s streaming platform Peacock Feb. 3 began streaming coverage of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics — the first-ever start-to-finish over-the-top video access to the Olympics.
With the Games officially starting Feb. 4, Peacock is offering premium-tier subscribers live competition streams across all 15 sports, including the Opening and Closing Ceremonies, NBC’s nightly primetime show, full replays of all competition available immediately upon conclusion, exclusive daily studio programming, medal ceremonies and extensive highlight clips.
“This [streaming] approach provides the American audience with a dynamic, easy-to-use Olympic viewing hub where not a single moment, live or on-demand, will be missed,” Molly Solomon, executive producer of NBC Olympics & Paralympics, said in a statement.
Team USA is expected to feature many top medal contenders, including three-time Olympic gold medalist Shaun White (snowboarding), 2018 Olympic gold medalist Chloe Kim (snowboarding), two-time Olympic gold medalist Mikaela Shiffrin (alpine skiing), three-time world champion Nathan Chen (figure skating), and 2018 Olympian Erin Jackson (speed skating). The reigning Olympic champion U.S. women’s ice hockey team are gold medal contenders and other U.S. team sports, such as curling, are expected to challenge for medals as well.
Peacock is currently available on the Roku platform; Amazon FireTV and Fire tablets; Apple devices, including iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Apple TV 4K and Apple TV HD; Google platforms and devices, including Android, Android TV devices, Chromecast and Chromecast built-in devices; Microsoft’s Xbox One family of devices, including Xbox One S and Xbox One X; Sony PlayStation4 and PlayStation 4 Pro; Samsung Smart TVs; Vizio SmartCast TVs; LG Smart TVs; Comcast’s entertainment platforms, including Xfinity X1, Xfinity Flex and XClass TV; and Cox’s Contour and Contour Stream Player devices.
