Twitch has partnered with NBC to stream Olympic programming leading up to and during the Tokyo Olympics. The NBC Olympics Twitch channel will stream studio highlight shows, athlete interviews and gaming competitions.
In the week prior to the Games, the channel will host a virtual pre-Opening Ceremony party, as well as an interactive feature where viewers of the torch streams can work together by participating in the chat and collecting items to “Light the Cauldron.”
Additonal features will include:
- Daily Interactive Clip Show
- Daily Competition
- Primetime Sidecasting
- Live From Tokyo
In the press release, Twitch chief content officer Michael Aragorn discussed the partnership, and what it means for viewers.
The program will conclude with a closing celebration, which will consist of a Twitch version of an awards ceremony and looks back on the top 10 moments from all the content on the NBC Olympics channel during Games.
