The Olympic Stadium in Rio de Janeiro.

Here's a guide to finding the NBC channels that are broadcasting coverage of the 2016 Summer Olympics from Rio de Janeiro.

Below, you'll find channel numbers for Comcast, Verizon FiOS, RCN, DirecTV and Dish Network in Philadelphia. The guide is meant for the local audience, but if you've come here from elsewhere and subscribe to one of the above systems, the channel assignments might also work for you.

Comcast

While there are some local Comcast systems that put channels on different numbers, this is where you'll find the channels in most of the region. If you have a X1 box, you can watch every event live, whether it's on TV or only streamed online, in the device's Olympics programming section.
