I need @Japanfan to reply because NBC is under a different name here I think - like affiliated with CTV or Global or something like that. But thank you! Also thank you @Sylvia

Yes, it's NBC. I think it is called something else, but know it by its logo, which appears on the TV guide shown on television.

Logo is here in white https://www.nbcnews.com/

On the TV guide it has colors, yellow, green and red IIRC. And it comes up fairly close the top of the TV guide.

Thanks @Japanfan. I know the logo well - it's the peacock. We have a basic Shaw package and I was puzzled that NBC wasn't on it so asked you because I just couldn't believe we didn't have NBC or an NBC affiliate here. But no, it's just not included in my package :(

Just a reminder that NBC has 4 hours of Rostelecom Cup coverage scheduled for today and tomorrow, 4-6 pm Eastern time (check your local listings). Maybe there'll be time for some pairs/dance! ;)

ETA:

NBC started their broadcast today with the men's short programs - Ignatov + 2nd group: Kolyada, Litvintsev, Mozalev, Gumennik, Kvitelashvili, Aliev. Then ONE pairs SP - Mishina/Galliamov. Ladies' short programs are next up.

Doesn't really look like it. Just a bunch of short programs today with M/G short shown, and now I suspect we will see a full hour of ladies SP.

Looks like NBC will show the winning Pairs FS next (after leading off today's broadcast with the final 6 men's free skates)... any bets on the FD too or will everything dance likely end up on the Olympic Channel with Tanith?

ETA: Predictably Kiibus is 'chacked' and the final 6 group of ladies' free skates will be shown.

I'm watching the Rostelecom FD now on Peacock. I had to go to search and put in rostelecom and all of the events appeared including the FD.

Nope, not that I can see. I know it was only 3 teams, but they still could have put a 1 hour broadcast together like this: show the 3 RDs, then replay Men's and Ladies winner FS (because you need to fill an hour), then show the 3 Free Dance. That would fill a 1 hour broadcast.

Is Olympic channel not showing the RD and FD from NHK? My DVR picks up endless reruns of the men's and ladies.
I guess that they’re trying to figure out how to link Dai’s story to a Homelight commercial from Tanith...”Just like Dai Takahashi, Homelight’s agents have the flexibility to switch course when searching for your perfect home.”

Oops...no ads on Peacock (yet)!
