NBC is changing the way viewers across the country will watch the 2018 Winter Olympic Games from Pyeongchang, South Korea.

For the first time ever, the network will offer its Olympic coverage live across all time zones. This will be the first the Winter Olympics will be available to all viewers across the country at the same time.

NBC Olympics Production and Programming President Jim Bell made the announcement saying all Americans will be able to share in what he calls the communal experience of the Olympic games at the same time, including both broadcast and streaming content.

Bell also pointed out that social media won't be ahead of the Olympic action in any time zone.

On most nights during the games, NBC's prime-time coverage, hosted for the first time by Mike Tirico, will begin at 8PM Eastern... or 5PM Pacific.

NBC's coverage of the XXIII Winter Olympic Games from Pyeongchang, South Korea begins Thursday, February 8, 2018. With Opening Ceremonies taking place Friday, February 9th.
