2018 Winter Paralympics To Get Most TV Coverage Ever
The Winter Olympics are not done yet in PyeongChang. It's the Paralympic athletes turn in the spotlight.
NBC has announced that they will be airing 94 hours worth of coverage of the 2018 Paralympic Games which is almost double the coverage the Paralympic athletes got back in 2014. NBC, NBCSN, The Olympic Channel, NBCSports.com, and the NBC Sports App will collectively air 250 hours worth of the 10-day Paralympic Games.
"There is arguably no event in the world more inspiring than the Paralympics, and it's our privilege to tell the captivating stories of these world-class athletes. Without question, our increase in coverage- nearly double the hours televised in Sochi -- would not be possible without the support of Toyota, which has brought to the Paralympics an unprecedented enthusiasm for the event, the athletes, and the mission," said Gary Zenkel, president of NBC Olympics. ***Toyota being the global sponsor of the Paralympic Games.***
