No longer will the coverage be tape-delayed in non-Eastern Time zones, a traditional criticism of NBC's coverage. The 2,400-plus hours of coverage nearly equals the Winter Games coverage of Sochi (1,600+ hours) and Vancouver (835 hours) combined. The coverage across NBC, NBCSN, CNBC, USA Network, NBCOlympics.com, and the NBC Sports app begins Feb. 7 at 11 p.m. ET on NBCSN, with coverage of mixed doubles curling. NBC's primetime coverage starts the next day at 8:00 p.m. ET, with live figure skating, qualifying in the men's and women's moguls competitions, and qualifying in men's ski jumping. NBC will air the Opening Ceremony on Friday Feb. 9 in primetime. The network breakdown is as followed: NBC (176 hours) NBC's schedule is divided into three day parts – daytime, primetime and primetime plus. Primetime begins each night at 8 p.m. ET, except for Sundays (7 p.m. ET) and will be highlighted by live coverage of alpine skiing, figure skating, snowboard/freestyle skiing, and short track.

Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn on Wednesday criticized President Trump, saying she doesn't believe he represents the country well.

"I want to represent our country well. I don't think that there are a lot of people currently in our government that do that," Vonn told CNN.

She added that she hopes "to represent the people of the United States, not the president" at the upcoming Winter Olympics.

The skier also said she would not accept an invitation to the White House if she won another gold medal at next year's Winter Olympics.

The 2018 Winter Olympics begin on Feb. 9. They are being held in PyeongChang, South Korea.

Trump has criticized athletes and league executives since taking office.

In September, he rescinded an invitation to the White House to Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry after Curry said he didn't want the team to visit following its NBA championship.

Since the start of this year's NFL season, Trump has blasted players who have knelt or raised fists during the national anthem prior to games. He has also been critical of NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell for allowing them to protest without punishment.

Trump last month feuded with LaVar Ball, whose son was one of three UCLA basketball players arrested on shoplifting charges in China. Trump called Ball an "ungrateful fool" for not showing Trump enough appreciation for assisting in the players' release.
