Don't miss Local Olympian with Xfinity TV
Don’t miss Brendan Hansen of Havertown, PA as he swims in the 100 meter breaststroke. He went to Haverford Senior High School, where he won multiple state championships in swimming.
For the first time, Olympics die-hards will have the option to see all of the medal events, and Xfinity customers will get unparalleled access to every minute of every medal on every screen. Xfinity Double and Triple Play customers can:
- Watch all 302 medal events, 5,535 hours of coverage, on all NBC networks plus on two specialty channels dedicated to soccer and basketball and the first-ever Olympic 3D channel.
- Access more than 3,500 hours of live-streaming content, with multiple streams for select sports such as gymnastics, track and field and tennis at Xfinity.com/NBCOlympics. Even embargoed events that will not air on the networks until prime time can be live-streamed, which means you could be among the first to see if Usain Bolt can break his own world record in the 100 meter dash.
- Download the Xfinity TV app and the Xfinity TV Sports Remote app for mobile devices to watch the Olympics on the go and get instant updates on your favorite sports and athletes. That means there’s no need to stay in on Saturday, August 4th to see Michael Phelps and the rest of Team USA in the 4 by 100 medley relay, since you can get instant updates on the results or watch from wherever you happen to be.
