The 2018 Winter Olympic Games are heading to PyeongChang, South Korea. From February 8 to February 25, 102 (yes, 102) medal events will take place in the Taebaek Mountains. The two-week games will be the country's first time hosting in the winter, and the second time overall (the first Olympics was in Seoul during the summer games in 1988).

The Olympics will feature the best athletes in 15 different sports on the slopes and the ice—from cross-country skiing to ice hockey to snowboarding. The Opening Ceremony takes place on the 9th, but the first games technically begin on the 8th.

For the first time ever, NBC will broadcast live in all time zones (over 2,000 hours worth of coverage (opens in new tab)), which means you don't have to watch the games delayed on the other side of the world. Every Olympic event will be available to livestream on NBC Olympics (opens in new tab), but depending on where you are in the world you can also download the NBC Sports app (opens in new tab) (U.S.), visit BBC Sport (opens in new tab) (UK), or Eurosport Player (opens in new tab) (UK). It will also be available to stream on Hulu Live TV (opens in new tab).

The last winter olympics took place in Sochi, Russia in 2014, where the United States brought home 28 Olympic medals. Ironically, Russia has been banned from this year's games (opens in new tab)—giving the United States a push forward in the race.
