NBC and Peacock will lead NBCUniversal’s coverage of the Paris Olympic Games. NBC plans to run at least nine hours of daytime coverage each day – Paris is six hours ahead of the US’ eastern time zone, which means popular events like the finals for gymnastics and swimming will air live during the day. At night, NBC will deliver “an enhanced Olympics primetime show,” featuring behind-the-scenes access. Meanwhile Peacock, in a Summer Games first, will stream every sport and event, while Telemundo provides Spanish-language coverage. Plans for USA, E!, SNBC, Golf Channel and Universo will be released at a later date. The Games take place July 26-August 11, 2024.
