NBCUniversal cable networks CNBC, MSNBC and USA Network will team up to provide curling and hockey coverage during the Sochi Olympics.

The combined 124 hours will complement NBC and NBCSN’s coverage of the Winter Games. Details for those networks’ coverage will be released soon.

All competition will be live streamed on NBCOlympics.com, too, with the vast majority available to authenticated cable, satellite or telco customers via “TV Everywhere.”

CNBC will present a daily curling program and televise 36 hours of curling overall over 12 days, including the men’s and women’s finals. CNBC’s curling show will air daily from 5-8 p.m. ET from Feb. 10-21, except for Sunday, Feb. 16, when coverage will air from 4-7.

MSNBC will carry 45 hours of Olympic hockey and curling over 12 days, including medal-round games. MSNBC’s hockey coverage will begin with a women’s game between Canada and Switzerland at 8 a.m. ET on Saturday, Feb. 8. Its curling coverage will be highlighted by the men’s and women’s semifinals.

USA Network will also carry hockey and curling, 43 hours total, including medal rounds for both and three Canadian men’s hockey games.
