Comcast NBCUniversal to Provide U.S. Military Service Members Olympic Streaming Coverage
Service members will access Olympics coverage from their computers or personal devices by visiting NBCOlympics.com or the NBC Sports app.
The Army & Air Force Exchange Service and NBC Olympics said Nov. 8 that U.S. service members worldwide would again be able to watch Olympic streaming coverage from their desktop and personal devices when NBCUniversal (No. 19 on the DiversityInc Top 50 Companies list) presents the XXIII Olympic Winter Games from PyeongChang, South Korea, in February 2018.
This benefit is provided to current U.S. Military service members, including Navy, Army, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard, including active duty, Guard, Reserve, and honorably-discharged veterans by Comcast NBCUniversal, and in partnership with your local Cable, Satellite, dMVPD, and Telco providers.
NBC Olympics will produce more than 1,800 hours of streaming coverage as more than 2,800 athletes from 90 countries compete in 102 medal events from Feb. 7-25.
"We're excited to partner once again with Comcast NBCUniversal to bring the Olympics into the living rooms or barracks of service members and their families all over the world," said Tom Shull, Director/CEO of the Exchange. "Let the Games begin!"
Service members will access Olympics coverage from their computers or personal devices by visiting NBCOlympics.com or the NBC Sports app, and choosing the Exchange as their service provider. Due to content rights restrictions, an active shopmyexchange.com account will be required to verify eligibility. Content rights restrictions will also apply to some outside continental United States (OCONUS) locations.
"We're excited to continue this creative partnership between the Exchange and Comcast NBCUniversal to deliver the Olympics to the U.S. military community around the globe," said Brigadier General Carol Eggert, U.S. Army, Retired and Senior Vice President of Military and Veteran Affairs at Comcast NBCUniversal. "The traits of Olympic athletes - determination, teamwork, perseverance – are shared by our service members, and it is a privilege for Comcast NBCUniversal to bring this landmark event to those who serve our Nation."
Through a similar partnership between the Army & Air Force Exchange Service and Comcast NBCUniversal in 2016, the Rio Olympics were the first time that U.S. service members were able to live stream Olympic coverage.
NBC's primetime coverage of the 2018 PyeongChang Olympics begins Thursday, February 8.
