With the 2018 Winter Olympics underway, NBC Olympics and Comcast are proud to announce their partnership with Descriptive Video Works to provide video description services (VDS) for viewers with visual disabilities watching coverage of the XXIII Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang, South Korea.
This is the second consecutive time NBC has provided an inclusive viewing experience for people with visual disabilities watching the Olympic Games. NBC Olympics and Comcast first delivered video description coverage of the Olympic Games during the 2016 presentation of the Rio Olympics.
With its unprecedented VDS coverage, NBC’s presentation of the 2018 PyeongChang Olympics will be more accessible than any previous Winter Games, with video description accompanying 18 primetime telecasts, including the Opening Ceremony and Closing Ceremony. Descriptive video will be incorporated into the live broadcasts, as well as NBC’s Video On Demand offerings.
