Olympics 2022 TV highlights: What to see from Beijing Saturday night, Sunday morning

Throughout the 2022 Winter Olympics, we get a daily preview here of the most popular events and how you can watch them.

With the time difference, every day live competition in China begins in primetime Eastern and runs overnight until mid-morning the following day. This installment covers events that take place Sunday in Beijing (Saturday night to Sunday morning in the United States).

All dates and times below are converted to Eastern time, 13 hours after Beijing time. NBC’s main channel-curated primetime show begins at 20.00 ONE Saturday, and will offer live bobsledding with the women’s monobob and alpine skiing with the men’s giant slalom, as well as tape-delayed coverage of the women’s skeletal final race and figure skating ice dance competition. All events can be streamed on Peacock or on NBCOlympics.com.

Top US events

Men’s hockey

What: USA vs. Germany

When: Sunday at 8.10

TV: USA and streaming

A 4-2 victory over Canada on Saturday in Beijing put the United States in a good position to win the group and go straight to the quarterfinals and avoid the playoff round in the knockout phase. Beating Germany would seal the deal, and even a loss could still do so.

Bobsleigh

What: Women’s monobob, heats 1-2

When: Saturday at 20.30

TV: NBC and streaming

Kaillie Humphries, who moved from the Canadian Olympic team to the American team since the last Games, and Elana Meyers Taylor are medal candidates in this brand new event on the bobsled program. The winners are determined by the total time over four heats over two days. Meyers Taylor tested positive for COVID-19 at the start of the Games and had to miss out on her flag-bearing duties, but she has since been approved to compete.

Speed ​​skating

What: Women’s 500m

When: Sunday at 8.56

TV: NBC and streaming

The world’s best 500 meter skater, American Erin Jackson, is the gold medal favorite. And she’s only in this race because teammate Brittany Bowe resigned her seat so Jackson could go to Beijing after Jackson slipped up in the U.S. trials. In a case of good karma, Bowe later returned to the race after the United States retrieved one of the unused quota seats from other countries. Kimi Goetz, 12th in this year’s World Cup standings, is also in the field.
