The 2016 Summer Olympic Games get underway Wednesday and NBC is scheduled to air nearly 7,000 hours worth of programming across its various television networks and digital platforms.
Here’s a guide to the networks and their BendBroadband channel numbers (standard definition/HD) set to carry all the action:
- NBC, 5/605
- Bravo, 137/737
- CNBC, 54/654
- Golf Channel, 28/628
- MSNBC, 59/659
- NBC Sports, 27/627
- USA Network, 15/615
- Telemundo (Spanish language), 14
A couple of important side thoughts.
One, the opening ceremonies air Friday at 7:30 p.m. on NBC. Yes, that’s two days after competition starts in some sports.
Also, ALL COMPETITIONS will be broadcast online through the NBC Sports app. That means you can watch every round of every event on your phone, tablet, laptop, desktop and/or connected TV. Note: You will need to login as a BendBroadband TV subscriber to access the content, so have your BendBroadband email address and password ready. If you want to watch events live, the NBC Sports app will be your best bet.

And in case you’re wondering, Central Oregon’s own Ashton Eaton begins his quest for a second gold medal in the decathlon on Aug. 17 at 5:30 a.m. our time. To watch the decathlon live you’ll need the NBC Sports app.
Enjoy the games!
