Up to three events from the previous days' competition schedule will be provided daily on DISH channel 540 from Feb. 10, the day after the Opening Ceremony, through Feb. 26, the day after the Games conclude. 4K HDR provides audiences a more realistic picture with enhanced brightness, contrast and color. To view NBCUniversal's 4K HDR coverage, DISH customers must have a Hopper 3 and 4K HDR television. DISH will offer several other features to help viewers get the most out of the Olympic Winter Games: Sports hub on DISH channel 147: In addition to live Olympic coverage on local NBC channels, DISH will offer a sports hub for easy navigation of NBCUniversal coverage across NBCSN, USA Network, CNBC, the Olympic Channel: Home of Team USA and DISH channel 540 featuring NBCUniversal's 4K HDR coverage of the Olympic Winter Games. DISH's sports hub can be found on channel 147, labeled as "2018 Winter Olympics Channels." "Olympic Winter Games" app: DISH will offer an NBCUniversal Olympics app on internet-connected Hopper (all generations), Hopper Duo, Joey (all models) and Wally set-top boxes. The app features real-time medal counts dynamically provided by NBCUniversal, and showcases the complete NBCUniversal Olympics TV roster by schedule and network. Accessible via the "Apps" menu or channel 159, viewers can use this app to tune to any live event or record upcoming events. Olympics on-demand: DISH is offering an on-demand catalog of more than 150 hours of exclusive NBCUniversal Olympic coverage. On-demand content will include pre-Olympics clips, 2014 Sochi Olympics highlights, athlete profiles, event replays and highlights, medal ceremonies and post-event commentary. Sports Bar Mode: With NBCUniversal's coverage presented across several channels, DISH's Sports Bar Mode will provide a useful tool to fans interested in watching multiple events airing simultaneously. Available on Hopper 3, Sports Bar Mode is a multi-channel view that divides a 4K or HDTV screen into four quadrants, each with the ability to display a different program. All Hopper, Hopper Duo, Joey and Wally customers can access a similar multi-view experience with the "NBC Olympics TV Experience" app, which displays up to six pre-selected Olympic programs simultaneously. This view can be accessed via the "Olympic Winter Games" app, "Apps" menu or on channel 100.
