Mike Tirico and Katie Couric host coverage of the Opening Ceremony of the 2018 Winter Olympic Games from PyeongChang Olympic Stadium (7 p.m., NBC). If you’ve never heard of PyeongChang, South Korea, you’re not alone. A fairly obscure place located near the divided peninsula’s Demilitarized Zone, it is often mixed up with North Korea’s capital, Pyongyang.

Olympics coverage always represents a mastery of logistics, and the broadcast of every new games has to top the last—if “broadcast” is the right word. NBC will offer more than 2,400 hours of sports coverage. That’s 1,000 days of “binging,” if you’ve got the time.

More than 1,800 hours will stream live on NBCOlympics .com and the NBC Sports app across desktops, mobile devices, tablets, and connected TVs (note: You’ve got to “authenticate” your cable subscription to access this all-you-can-eat buffet of skiing, skating, snowboarding, hockey and curling).

To present its Olympics cornucopia, NBC will use more than 700 cameras and 89 commentators. To capture every moment of competition, NBC will use 2,200 terabytes of video disk storage, capable of filing away 8½ years’ worth of events.
