Snapchat will send notifications when live events are streaming, but users have to opt-in to receive them. Coupled with its strong first-quarter 2018 estimates, now might not be a bad time to think about grabbing Comcast amid this current downturn. The most popular events will be on NBC, but NBCSN is essential for comprehensive coverage of your favorite sports.

The lion's share of NBC's televised coverage will happen here - a wide variety of sports, airing nearly round the clock.

A few Olympics ago, NBC discovered that when it aired the men's and women's curling tournaments - even when the sport was relegated to one of its non-sports cable channels - American audiences tuned in, getting hooked on a competition they otherwise rarely see. This will be mainly a home for hockey, as well as for more curling.

Despite making headlines for taking on Costas' mantle, Tirico knows that viewers are not tuning in to watch him host the games for NBC.

A full horizontal stream will appear at the bottom of the screen where they can select a particular segment to zoom in on.

To watch the streams on the NBC Sports app or NBCOlympics.com, you must use your service's username and password.
