The 2018 Winter Olympics, officially known as the XXIII Olympic Winter Games (Korean: 제23회 동계 올림픽, translit. Je-isipsamhoe Donggye Ollimpik) and commonly known as PyeongChang 2018, is an international multi-sport event held in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Pyeongchang was selected as the host city in July 2011, during the 123rd IOC Session in Durban, South Africa. It marks the first time that South Korea has hosted the Winter Olympics, and the second Olympics held in the country, the first being the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul.

The 2018 Winter Olympic Games are being held in South Korea for the first time in three decades and have officially begun. The opening ceremony kicked off at 8:00 p.m. local time in Pyeongchang, which equates to 6:00 a.m. EST. For the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, NBC and its cable networks will cover popular sports such as figure skating and skiing. Because of the 14-hour time difference, not every Olympic event will be broadcast live. For that, you need to watch an online stream.
The Winter Olympics runs from 9 to 25 February 2018 with certain events being held on 8 and 9 February 2018 prior to the opening ceremony. The games feature 102 events in fifteen sports disciplines, including the addition of big air snowboarding, mass start speed skating, mixed doubles curling, and mixed team alpine skiing to the Winter Olympic programme. 2,952 athletes from 92 National Olympic Committees are slated to compete, including the debut of Ecuador, Eritrea, Kosovo, Malaysia, Nigeria and Singapore.
The lead-up to these Games were threatened by the ongoing tensions between South Korea and North Korea. Eventually the two countries agreed to march together during the opening ceremony and to field a unified women’s hockey team. These moves were met with opposition by South Korean critics, who believed that the country was using the Games as a platform for pro-North Korean sentiment.
The PyeongChang 2018 live stream of all the competitions will be available on connected TVs, NBCOlympics.com, and the NBC Sports app across all platforms. The Games will be shown on five television networks — NBC, NBCSN, CNBC, USA, and the Olympic Channel: Home of Team USA — another first for the Winter Games. Additionally, users can access three digital-only programs, a news desk that posts Olympics updates throughout the day, and a live stream of all practices.
The TV coverage began on Wednesday with mixed doubles curling. Users could watch the stream of this event on the same day starting at 7 p.m. ET.
