The Games will kick off with a festive opening ceremony on Friday, Feb. 9 featuring commentary from hosts NBC hosts Katie Couric and Mike Tirico, athletes marching into the Olympic stadium bearing their country's flag and maybe even a K-pop performance or two if we're lucky. If you plan to watch it live, you'll have to get up early as the ceremony starts at 6 a.m. ET. However, NBC will also air the ceremony later that evening starting at 8/7c.

There are plenty of places to catch the opening ceremony outside of NBC and its affiliated networks. The event will be available to stream on your mobile phone, tablet or connected TV such as Roku, Amazon Fire or Apple TV via the NBC Sports app. You can also stream the ceremony and other events on fuboTV or NBCOlympics.com.

This year's event will see a number of exciting things including athletes from both North and South Korea competing under one flag. Plus, Saturday Night Live cast member Leslie Jones will head back for her second outing as an Olympic commentator.
