Due to its high altitude, Pyeongchang's weather is especially severe, and this year's Games may set a record for being the coldest since the 1994 Games in Lillehammer, Norway. Athletes from North and South Korea will march under the Korean Unification flag during the Opening Ceremony. However, 169 athletes from Russian Federation will compete as "Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation".

"The Winter Olympics is a great example of the breadth and depth of live sports that our subscribers can stream, with thousands of hours of premium content available this month thanks to our partnership with NBCUniversal", said fuboTV Head of Content Strategy & Acquisition Ben Grad.

Additionally, landmarks all over Vancouver, including the cauldron and plaza area, will glow red for the duration of the Olympic Games in PyeongChang. The team of John Morris of Canmore, Alta. and Winnipeg's Kaitlyn Lawes will go head to head with the USA before taking on China and Finland.

Twenty years ago, snowboarding debuted as a sport in the Winter Olympic Games in Nagano, Japan. For non-early birds, the ceremony will be rebroadcast at 8-11 p.m. ET on NBC. They absolutely did; the last Nordic Games were held in 1926.

Who is hosting?: Katie Couric is back to co-host the Opening Ceremony for the fourth time, joined by first-time co-host Matt Tirico.
