Competitions of seven winter Olympic sports will be available live and on-demand
NBC SportsGold, NBC Sports Digital’s direct-to-consumer live-streaming product, launched Snow Pass today, giving fans access to live and on-demand domestic and international competitions of seven winter Olympic sports from October 2018 through April 2019. Snow Pass will feature an unprecedented 700+ hours — including nearly 100 exclusive hours — of coverage of FIS alpine skiing, nordic combined, ski jumping, cross-country skiing, freestyle skiing, biathlon, and snowboarding. The 2018-19 Snow Pass is available for purchase now for $69.99 at NBCSportsGold.com.
“Coming off the success of the 2018 PyeongChang Olympics, the appetite for winter-sports coverage has never been greater,” says Portia Archer, VP, direct-to-consumer services, NBC Sports Group. “Whether it’s the thrill of the downhill, the endurance of cross-country, or the majesty of the ski jump, we’re excited to give fans more content than ever before.”
A complement to the hundreds of hours of winter-Olympic-sport programming airing across NBC, NBCSN, Olympic Channel: Home of Team USA, and their respective digital platforms, Snow Pass covers every remaining stop of the World Cup season for each of the seven sports, including exclusive live and on-demand coverage of many alpine-skiing events, beginning Oct. 27. The pass also features live and on-demand coverage of the biennial FIS World Championships February–March 2019.
NBC Sports Gold holds the exclusive rights to all FIS events held in Austria and will stream the first FIS Alpine Skiing World Cup races of the 2018-19 season from Sölden, Austria, on Snow Pass Oct. 27-28.
