Based on the listings I see, the finals will be delayed on Olympic Channel itself, shown the next day. They may be live on Olympic Channel.com.

AUSTIN, TX. is not a major city in Texas : HOUSTON / SAN ANTONIO / DALLAS are major cities and even more so when considered as metropolitan areas – Austin/Travis County is, well, ‘nice’

Bet those other cities in Texas couldn’t beat Austin in a 400 free relay tho

Yeah Texas is a country and Austin is the capital.

The Austin Metro is 2.3 million. The San Antonio Metro is 2.55 million. That’s a pretty fine line to walk if in your mind one is major and one is not.

Metro area population, of course, is not the only measure of “major city,” but it’s certainly an important one.

As well as the d**n traffic. I moved from Houston to Austin 3 years ago and the traffic is equally miserable.

Cate

Yes, Austin is a major city in Texas. If you’ve ever sat in Austin traffic, you would know that. It is also the capital of Texas. Are you sure that you live in Texas? Or perhaps you’re just sheltered.

Peacock tv says they’re carrying it, can we confirm this?

Yes, but they’ll make you pay for premium service to see the preliminary heats. You can see the finals for free, tho.

Do you have a streaming service with Olympic channel and nbcsn attached? I have YouTubeTv which carries those channels.

I just signed up for the free trial of premium, and it’s still showing me prelims are going to be delayed. 5:30pm in my time zone instead of live at 11am

The best part of this article was listing ATX as the central time zone instead of Chicago.

Will NBC be showing the semifinals during the evening sessions, and if not, how do we watch them?
