When the 2012 Olympic games gets underway, NBC and it's affiliate stations will be plenty busy broadcasting nearly 3,500 hours of coverage over nine television channels.
NBC proper, MSNBC, CNBC, NBC Sports Network, Bravo, Telemundo and three newly created "specialty channels" for satellite and digital cable subscribers will focus on specified competitions to give viewers comprehensive coverage.
NBC will also be streaming live footage of every competition but only satellite, cable and teleco subscribers that receive MSNBC and/or CNBC will be able to access its NBC Live Extra website.
