TV Coverage
NBC and NBCSN will combine to air 95 hours of television coverage starting on March 9 with the Opening Ceremony. Daily coverage will follow of all five Paralympic sports in the PyeongChang program, before the Games’ Closing Ceremony is broadcast on March 18.

TeamUSA.org:  Will stream all events live and I believe you can view replays as well (if not, see the first app below).  

iOS and Android Apps

NBC Sports Live Extra - (From NBCUniversal). This is the go-to place for live and full-event replays from the Olympics. NBC is showing every event live, a first for a U.S. broadcaster during the Winter Games.  However, even though the app is free to download, you need a password from your cable or satellite TV provider to watch much of the video. 

NBC Olympics Highlights and Results - (From NBCUniversal) The app offers video that doesn’t require a pay TV subscription to view, but the selection is limited. It’s more useful for the nuts and bolts on the games — results, medal standings and capsules on individual athletes. Every country is included, though there’s more available for Americans.

If you don’t have access to live video, you can at least follow what’s happening in Sochi through a live blog embedded in the app. You can also access photos and news stories

PyeongChang 2018 Results - (From the organizing committee for the PyeongChang Olympics). Begin by selecting your preferred language, country and time zone. Select some sports and athletes to follow. The app offers notifications when new medals are earned by an athlete or in a country or sport you follow.

Olympic Athletes’ Hub - (From the International Olympic Committee). This app offers a one-stop destination to view Facebook, Instagram and Twitter feeds from Olympic athletes.  Create your own roster of Olympians to follow or search one athlete at a time. You can also check out everyone from a particular country, sport or event. Athletes from past Olympics are here, too. (I was initially going to recommend the U.S. Olympic Committee’s 2014 Team USA Road to Sochi app to follow athletes’ social-media posts, but the IOC app offers more options and isn’t limited to Americans).
