NBCUniversal will use an array of AT&T networking solutions to deliver high-definition coverage of the Sochi Olympic Winter Games from February 6-23, 2014. These services will support high-definition video feeds and allow viewers in the United States to enjoy a reliable, high-quality viewing experience of the Sochi Winter Games. “When people watch the Olympic Games, they increasingly do so from multiple screens – a smartphone, tablet, computer and the traditional television screen,” said Robert Kiraly, Director of Broadcast and Telecommunications Operations, NBC Olympics, Inc. “AT&T supports the networking services we need to ensure our viewers will have the best experience possible, no matter their screen preference.” This will be the 9th consecutive year NBCUniversal has selected AT&T to provide the networking services to support the delivery of its Olympics coverage. “We’ve had a strong relationship with NBCUniversal for decades,” said Dan Walsh, senior vice president, Global Customer Solutions and Integration, AT&T Business Solutions. “Whether people are at home watching television or traveling with a laptop, tablet or smartphone, we will support the NBC Olympic experience. The work we’re doing this year in Sochi continues to expand on that.”
