From the start of figure skating to the Opening Ceremony, the Winter Games is kicking up the excitement in the coming hours, and if you’re looking for how to watch it on TV or online we’ve got you covered.
Local skater Alexa Knierim, of Addison, Illinois, will make her Beijing debut before Team USA, led by Wisconsin curling star John Shuster and Brittany Bowe, makes its entrance at the Opening Ceremony.
Here’s what to watch the next 24 hours in Beijing and how you can watch it live.
The competition will stream live starting at 7:55 p.m. CT Thursday on Peacock, NBCOlympics.com and NBC. The event starts with the men’s short program, followed by the rhythm dance at 9:35 p.m. CT and pairs short program at 11:15 p.m.
U.S. Figure Skating announced that Nathan Chen, ice dancers Madison Hubbell and Zachary Donohue and the pair of Knierim and Brandon Frazier will compete on the first of three days for the team event.
Teams are able to make two changes apiece from the short/rhythm to the free, meaning Jason Brown or Vincent Zhou could compete in the men’s free skate instead of Chen, for example; the men’s free skate for the team event falls two days before the men’s singles event begins.
