Don’t have a cable, satellite or telco TV subscription and want to watch NBC’s coverage of the Rio Olympics in August? Well, Sling TV may have your answer.
The over-the-top (OTT) service has just added NBC itself and three other NBCUniversal-owned cable networks that will be showing Olympics events — NBC Sports Network, USA and Bravo – to its over-the-top (OTT) offerings. They’ll be part of a new $25-per-month “Sling Blue” package, which will also feature NBC’s Syfy.
But wait! Right now, you’ll only be able to watch your local NBC station live if you live in one of the following 10 markets: Chicago, Dallas-Fort Worth, Hartford, Conn., Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, San Diego and Washington DC. Sling said in a press release that it “expects to add local content from NBC affiliates in the future on a market-by-market basis.”
Also “coming soon” from NBCUniversal for Sling Blue subs:
- On-demand content
- Regional sports networks for “select markets.” These were identified as Comcast SportsNet (CSN) California, CSN Bay Area, CSN Chicago and CSN Mid-Atlantic.
Sling said that additional NBCUniversal networks are now available in Sling Blue “Extra” packs, including four more Olympics channels — CNBC, MSNBC, Golf and NBCUniverso – as well as Oxygen and E!
