    Given that Center Ice has carried WJC games, anyone have any idea if they will carry any Olympic games? :dunno:
     

  2. No, they will all be on NBC

    Every game?

    I figured (hoped) that with 10 empty channels that maybe Center Ice would broadcast some/all of the games, even if on tape delay.
     

  4. Maybe but I doubt it. I read/heard that NBC was to carry all hockey games. Some obviously will be on tape delay, but all be on television.

    NBC owns all of the US TV rights to the Olympics.

    NBC owns a bunch of other channels (MSNBC, USA, etc.) and as they have in the past, they'll have Olympic coverage on most of them.

    Someone should dig up the complete schedule (if it's around somewhere) and sticky it since this keeps coming up.

    I tried to find a listing of just the USA Men's Schedule/TV coverage but came up empty. I'll do a little bit more digging around today (if work allows). I did however find this bit of information at USA Hockey's Official Site:

    Thanks, that helped actually! They gave a link to www.nbcolympics.com - once you're there you put in your zip code and pick your cable/satellite provider and you can get a customized schedule by sport. Looks like most games will be on MSNBC or USA.

    Also if you have UHD I think that's Universal high definition I'm not 100% sure they are also showing both the womens and mens games in HD.
