Time Warner Cable Brings Customers NBCUniversal’s Coverage Of 2014 Olympic Winter Games From Sochi, Russia, February 6 - 23

Time Warner Cable in partnership with NBCUniversal, today announced a multiplatform content offering for NBCUniversal’s coverage of the XXII Olympic Winter Games from Sochi, Russia, to commence on Thursday, February 6, and run through Sunday, February 23. Time Warner Cable’s video subscribers will have access to NBCUniversal’s unprecedented 1,500+ hours of Winter Olympic programming, including every Olympic competition, live and on-demand and across multiple platforms. In addition to enjoying extensive coverage on the networks of NBCUniversal, including NBC, NBC Sports Network (NBCSN), MSNBC, CNBC, and USA Network, subscribers can stay connected to the Sochi Olympic Winter Games wherever they go via NBCOlympics.com and the NBC Sports Live Extra app, America’s premier Olympic digital destinations. Time Warner Cable is also making it easier for customers to enjoy Olympics coverage in HD by grouping the networks across its footprint on channels 1465-1469. Like no other event to date, the Olympic Games have been, and continue to be, a watershed moment for “TV Everywhere,” helping to drive awareness and usage.

“We are excited to bring our customers NBCUniversal’s 1,500+ hours of unprecedented multiplatform coverage of the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics” said Mike Angus, SVP & GM, Video for Time Warner Cable. “Access via Time Warner Cable HD, on demand, and high speed Internet services maximizes the NBCUniversal Olympic viewing experience for our subscribers.”

The following multiplatform offerings from NBCUniversal will allow Time Warner Cable customers to watch and be a part of the 2014 Olympic Winter Games through their televisions, PCs/Macs, and mobile and tablet apps.

THE OLYMPICS BEGIN FEB. 6, 2014

With more Winter Olympic events than ever before, competition for the 2014 Olympic Winter Games from Sochi, Russia, will begin one day prior to the Opening Ceremony. As a result, NBC will begin its primetime coverage of the 2014 Sochi Olympics on Thursday, February 6, one night before the broadcast network provides its traditional coverage of the Opening Ceremony on Friday Feb. 7. This marks the first time NBC will air Olympic primetime coverage before the Opening Ceremony. The primetime broadcast on Thursday, Feb. 6, 2014, is scheduled to include competition in snowboard slopestyle (men’s and women’s), in which two-time gold medalist Shaun White is expected to compete in the slopestyle’s Olympic debut; team figure skating, which is also in the Olympics for the first time; and women’s freestyle moguls.
