Live From 2020 Winter Classic: NBC Sports’ James Stuart Breaks Down Tech Coverage at the Historic Cotton Bowl

The act of ushering in a new year is not complete without the NHL Winter Classic on NBC. To start 2020, the yearly event traveled to Cotton Bowl stadium on the Texas State Fairgrounds in Dallas. Among a full complement of technology deployments were many major debuts, including the Peacock Pit Box, two jib cameras, and an unprecedented look inside the NHL Replay Room.


In Dallas, SVG Associate Editor Kristian Hernandez spoke with James Stuart, senior director, operations, NBC Sports Group, about the new technology used at the New Year’s Day tradition, how the 90-year-old venue offered some production hurdles, and why this event has become such a huge property for the network.
