Farfolomew posted this a couple of years ago.
I am posting this now so that those that can get this free, will hopefully not pay for this service:

U.S. service members and honorably-discharged veterans worldwide can watch NBC Olympics' streaming coverage of the 2018 Winter Olympics from their desktops and personal devices. This benefit is provided to current U.S. Military service members, including Navy, Army, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard, including active duty, Guard, Reserve, and honorably-discharged veterans by Comcast NBCUniversal, and in partnership with your local Cable, Satellite, dMVPD and Telco providers.

See https://www.shopmyexchange.com/winter-olympics for the details. You can see the FAQ here: https://www.shopmyexchange.com/as...ympics.pdf


If you're in the US military, veteran or affiliated, you can get an AAFES ShopMyExchange.com account. Many of us here are already shopping there. With that account, you can authenticate with NBC to watch their complete coverage of every Olympic event from start to finish starting on February 8th.

Quote from AAFES :
NBC Olympics will stream 1,800 hours of coverage, including live streaming all competition,as 2,800 athletes from 90 countries compete in 15 sports from Feb. 8-25, 2018.

This benefit is provided to those who serve in the US Military, by Comcast NBCUniversal in partnership with the Exchange and your local Cable, Satellite and Telco providers.
Requires a shopmyexchange account. Due to broadcasting regulations, NBCUniversal is only allowed to show NBCUniversal Sports content on the internet in the United States and U.S. Territories. Users outside of these locations will be able to access content on a US Military base and only on previously approved internet ranges.
Every effort has been made to get access for service personnel at Exchange locations. However, due to the nature of this first time project, service gaps could occur.

NBC Olympics (Comcast) coverage is the absolute worst in sports broadcasting. Time delayed broadcasts, tabloid style coverage, reality TV commentary, and non-stop editorialzed drama. Get a VPN and watch BBC or CBC. It should be treason to watch NBC produced filth.

[Your assessment is] very true in many circumstances of their 'coverage'. This IS a great perk for cord-cutters to still enjoy the Winter Games without having to jump through too many hoops. If the commentary gets obnoxious, I would just press the MUTE button on my remote.

Reading the FAQ:

Quote from FAQ :
Feb. 6 is when service members will be required to choose the Exchange as their provider and start authenticating through shopmyexchange.com.

7. I couldn't find the Exchange listed as a provider on the NBC Sports app. Some quick tips...Make sure you have installed the correct NBC sports app. Choose NBC Olympics as your destination once in the app. Next, click on the Olympic event you want to watch. Note that only the "live" events will require authentication and log in. As you begin watching a live event the app will prompt you to select your TV provider. At that time, scroll down the page and select the Exchange logo. You may also use the drop down text box by choosing "AAFES, The Exchange, Military BX/PX" as listed.

Connect to a VPN server in London or Toronto. That's how I watched the last Olympics.

Think you will have to wait on ice swimming.

For some reason I like curling. Maybe too many 8-bit video games as a kid?

The Exchange is now listed as a TV provider for verification.
