NBC expects to broadcast nearly 3,500 of 2012 Olympics coverage, meaning the network will put all of its broadcast arms— and more— to good use. The network will utilize nine TV channels to deliver footage to viewers: NBC proper, MSNBC, CNBC, NBC Sports Network, Bravo, Telemundo and three newly created "specialty channels" for satellite and digital cable subscribers that will focus on certain competitions.
NBC will also be streaming live footage of every competition, but with one catch: only satellite, cable and teleco subscribers that receive MSNBC and/or CNBC will be able to access its NBC Live Extra website. The network also announced that it will not be streaming either the opening or closing ceremonies for viewers without subscription access.
