This photo shows Team Korea House, South Korea's national promotional center within the Gangneung Olympic Park, a venue for the 2018 Winter Olympics near the host city of PyeongChang, on February 8, 2018. We will have everything you need to know about the contests and participants on our website online at First Coast News and at the NBC Olympics homepage.

For those planning to watch the festivities from the U.S., there's a 14-hour time difference between South Korea and the East Coast, and an 11-hour difference between South Korea and the West Coast.

Yes, NBC will still air the most popular events during primetime, but the vast portfolio of NBCUniversal cable networks means even more events can be showcased either live or pre-recorded.

There will be plenty of events to watch every day during the Winter Olympics so there's no shortage of live streams to catch. "That's right when numerous marquee events-figure skating, alpine, snowboarding-will be taking place".

Even though the opening ceremony doesn't take place until Friday in PyeongChang, some events are already underway and the U.S. defeated their Russian counterparts in the new discipline of mixed curling.

Q: How can I watch the Olympics?

2018 Winter Olympics officially begin with the opening ceremony.

Olympic coverage will also be available through over-the-top subscription providers including Google Fiber, Hulu Live TV, DirectTV Now, Playstation Vue, YouTube TV, Sling TV and Fubo TV through the Olympic Channel and NBC.
