2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics Day 12 TV and Announcer Schedule

For the first time ever at a Winter Olympics, NBC will broadcast Olympic primetime competition live across all time zones. Whether daytime, primetime or “Primetime Plus” (formerly the late night show), all U.S. viewers will be able to watch NBC’s coverage of the XXIII Olympic Winter Games from PyeongChang, South Korea, at the same time.

  • Facebook and Twitter

  • Winter Olympics TV Schedules

  • NBCOlympics.com will offer live streaming of the NBC broadcast network, including primetime and Primetime Plus, and NBCSN will air live primetime coverage, both firsts at a Winter Games.

    Highlights of Day 12 Events:

    Perhaps the best chance for the first U.S. Olympic women’s cross-country medal (and second-ever for either gender after Bill Koch‘s silver in 1976) is in the women’s team sprint. Jessie Diggins and Sadie Bjornsen took bronze at the 2017 Worlds, while Diggins and Kikkan Randall won in 2013.

    Training partners Kaillie Humphries of Canada and Elana Meyers Taylor have called their rivalry in women’s bobsled a “battle royale.” The tattooed Humphries came from behind to nip Meyers Taylor for the Sochi Olympic crown, but Meyers Taylor is the world champion. Another American, Jamie Greubel Poser, won the 2016-17 World Cup season title.

    Sochi gold medalist David Wise went nearly two years between wins until two months ago. Fellow Sochi Olympian Torin Yater-Wallace endured a collapsed lung, two broken ribs, a concussion and being placed on life support in separate setbacks the last four years but still made it back to the Games. They’ll compete in the men’s halfpipe of freestyle skiing.

    The U.S. and Canada met in four of five Olympic women’s hockey finals thus far, and it would be a shock if they aren’t playing for gold again. After a heartbreaking overtime loss in Sochi, the U.S. beat Canada in the last three world championship finals.

    Team pursuit finals offer the powerful Dutch a shot at two Speed Skating gold medals. Japan is the favorite in the women’s event, while New Zealand, with just one Winter Olympic medal entering PyeongChang, has podium potential in the men’s.

    The following are the events including dates, start times, TV networks and announcers. All times Eastern unless otherwise noted.
