When the 2012 Olympic Games begin this weekend in London, NBC will be broadcasting close to 3,500 hours of coverage across nine stations that fall under the company's umbrella of affiliate channels.
NBC, MSNBC, CNBC, NBC Sports Network, Bravo, Telemundo and three newly created "specialty channels" for satellite and digital cable subscribers will focus on specified competitions to give viewers comprehensive coverage of the 2012 games.
While every minute of the Olympics will be captured by NBC, not all viewers will be able to see everything.
The network will be streaming live footage of every competition, but only satellite, cable and teleco subscribers that receive MSNBC and/or CNBC will be able to access its NBC Live Extra website. In addition, the network has already announced that it will not be broadcasting the game's opening and closing ceremonies for viewers who do not have subscription access.
