Ah, the Winter Olympics. The time, every four years, we have the pleasure to watch the most talented athletes in the world compete for their country, while we judge them. “He could have gone so much faster; that was not his best time.” “That was a weak toe jump; she calls herself a figure skater? But her costume is cute.” “I think I’d be amazing at curling; maybe I should take up a new sport.”
Admit it, we’ve all been there, watching sports we know very little about, but during the Olympics we become an expert. I’ve seen The Cutting Edge, so I have every right to judge the figure skating competition. It goes without saying, we’re pretty excited for this year’s Winter Olympics in PyeongChang.
The 2018 Winter Olympics will begin on Friday, February 9th and ends with the closing ceremony on Sunday, February 25th. Essentially this means we’ll be watching the Olympics for the entire month of February, and we’re not mad about it!
The best part about the Olympics (other than the amazing costumes, incredible talent, and rad sports), is that it’s aired on NBC! That’s right cord cutters, you won’t have to miss a moment of the athletic action. All you need is a TV antenna! And if you would like to record some of the Olympic events and watch them later, and at your leisure, then you’ll want to include a ClearStream TV to your home theater setup. If you’re not sure which channel is your local NBC affiliate, never fear, we’ve made it easy for you. Simply enter your zip code HERE and it’ll pull up your local channel. Isn’t it nice when things are easy?
You can find the full Winter Olympics schedule on the PyeongChang 2018 website HERE. Be sure to note that all times stated in the competition schedule are based on Korean Standard Time. We’d hate for you to sit down in front of your TV or check your recordings on the ClearStream TV app and say, “this doesn’t look like hockey… why are they standing on two little sticks with some rods and sliding down snow?” Man, that would be very disappointing.
To make the Winter Olympics even more wonderful, we’ve decided to have a giveaway. Not just one giveaway, but WEEKLY giveaways on our Facebook page during the Winter Games! Here’s how it’ll work:
Every Monday we will post a photo on our Facebook page. All you have to do is leave a comment (based on the prompt for the week, we will change it up and make it fun), and you’re entered to win a ClearStream TV and an Antennas Direct TV antenna of your choice. We will announce the winner every Friday. We will start the giveaway on February 5th (because you should have some time to prepare for the Winter Games in advance, it’s a big event) and announce the first winner on February 9th during the Opening Ceremony for the Olympics. The final giveaway winner will be announced on February 23rd. This means you have THREE chances to win!
What events are you most looking forward to watching? Be sure to share with us in the comments and head over to our Facebook page to join in on the conversation. Best of luck and we hope you enjoy the 2018 Winter Olympics (we know we will)!
