Comcast is making it really easy to gorge on the Winter Olympics

As vendors get ready several pay TV providers and virtual MVPDs are gearing up for the games

Otherwise, your video will cut out after a half-hour grace period.

The subscription requirement also applies to coverage of 30 events on virtual-reality headsets. Future events will be aired live as they happen, giving spectators at home the opportunity to tune in and keep up with their favorite medal event. And finally, you could download the Team USA App, which offers information about us athletes and even includes a minigame for the sports sensation that's sweeping the nation, curling.

For the first time in over two decades, NBC's network broadcast is LIVE in all time zones - no more West Coast delay. He's in line to take over NBC's Sunday Night Football coverage when Al Michael retires, but for now he'll settle for the Olympics, along with other high-profile NBC gigs.

NBC owner Comcast will include online coverage on its TV set-top boxes and TV coverage on its mobile apps to offer viewers one-stop access to the Olympics. In the USA, you'll need the NBC Sports VR app. Go to the websites' sign-up pages, and you will usually be asked to enter your zip code in order to confirm what's available. And you'll need to know what's airing where and when to fully get the most of it. So, for the majority of coverage, focus on a package with NBC and NBC Sports. You can also watch simulstreams of the NBC network and cable broadcasts in case you aren't in front of a TV.

As with CNBC, USA will feature over 40 hours of Olympics coverage, also specialized. The footage you'll see inside Snap is the same stuff you'll see from NBC on television, but much, much shorter: Each live segment inside Snapchat will be somewhere between two and six minutes.

If you don't want to pay for TV at all, you're not totally out of luck. NBC's live broadcast stream won't be available on the NBC app if you don't get the local station.

Both the website and the app require viewers to authenticate up-front that they have a cable, satellite or telco TV subscription.

As in 2014, NBCOlympics.com is the place to watch on your Mac, and NBC is maintaining a full streaming schedule.

Traditional media organizations will also cover the event, even though extensive video from the official venues are restricted to the rights-holding broadcasters.
