The most recent Nielsen report shows an increase of 646,000 NBCSN television homes following extensive coverage of the 2018 PyeongChang Olympics. NBCSN also presented live Premier League and NHL games and accompanying studio shows, a Super Bowl post-game show, rugby, track and field, and college hockey and basketball in February.
NBCSN is in approximately 85 million U.S. TV homes.
"We are pleased that this report amplifies NBCSN's best month ever," said Mark Lazarus, chairman, NBC Broadcasting and Sports. "With hundreds of hours of Winter Games coverage along with our other valuable programming, our business continues to grow, and the Olympics prove once again to be dominant and powerful."
In February, NBCSN posted the network's record monthly audiences in primetime (average of 1.27 million viewers) and total day (753,000 viewers) and ranked as the No. 1 sports cable network in both metrics for the month (Jan. 29-Feb. 25), according to Nielsen.
NBCUniversal's carriage agreements with leading distributors increased the number of homes with access to NBCSN's coverage of the Olympics and the other premier sports in its portfolio.
