As far as streaming, YouTube TV was the first to announce the Beijing Winter Olympics would be available in 4K.
Coverage of the 2022 Winter Olympics began Tuesday, Feb. 2 with coverage of Curling, Alpine Skiing, Men’s Downhill Training, Hockey and other sports.
“The Winter Olympics provide some of the most amazing moments and stunning visuals in the world of sports,” said Gary Zenkel, President, NBC Olympics. “We’re excited to once again bring the American audience closer to all of the incredible action with our live primetime and Prime Plus shows utilizing this remarkable 4K HDR technology.”
In most markets, Prime Plus follows the late local news and often features live competition depending on the time difference between Beijing and the U.S.
