Peacock’s programming will be seamlessly curated alongside other Olympic-related programming from streaming services such as YouTube, HBO Max, Prime Video and more.

Flex customers wanting to experience more of the Games can quickly and easily upgrade to Xfinity TV via the Stream App, so they can access NBC’s live coverage, including the Opening Ceremony and nightly Primetime Show, Telemundo and special access to the Olympic Channel directly on their Flex device. Happy Viewing!
