2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics Day 15 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 15 Events:

    The men’s 50km mass start of cross-country skiing, the marathon of the Winter Olympics, takes about two hours to complete. Russia swept the podium in Sochi, but the gold and silver medalists were in November banned for life from the Olympics as part of the Russia doping scandal punishments. The bronze medalist was not named to Russia’s Olympic team.

    Athletes will surely be sliding in memory of the late Steven Holcomb (who passed away in 2017), who in 2010 drove the U.S. to its first four-man bobsled gold in 62 years. Holcomb followed that with bronze medals in two- and four-man bobsled in Sochi while injured.

    Canada won the last two titles in men’s ice hockey, but with no NHL players in PyeongChang, it is not the favorite. Russia is, boosted by an entire roster of players from the KHL, the world’s second-best league. Russia has not won Olympic hockey gold since it began competing on its own in 1994.

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