Heres info on NBC Sports Networks coverage of the World Championships:
Five of the Seven United States Preliminary Round games will be LIVE - first game is this Saturday morning vs Austria - 5:00 am ET. Games vs Russia, Finland, France and Slovakia will also be televised LIVE.
The Latvia game (Sunday, May 5-1:00 pm ET start) will be televised on NBC Sports Network on Monday, May 6 - 1:00 am ET. Theres a 12 hour Tape Delay due to almost 13 hours worth of LIVE NHL playoff coverage - 12:00 pm ET-1:00 am ET - on NBC/NBC Sports Network this coming Sunday, May 5. The Germany game will be televised on a 90 minute Tape Delay on Sunday, May 12 - 10:30 am ET. NBC Sports Network will be televising a LIVE Formula One Race - Spanish Grand Prix - when the United States-Germany game will be starting at 9:00 am ET. If you can't wait the 12 hours to watch the Latvia game on TV or the 90 minutes to watch the Germany game on TV, you can watch it LIVE via the NBCSports.com LIVE Extra stream - see below for more info.
All the Quarterfinal games will be televised LIVE. Coverage plans for the Semifinals/Bronze Medal and Gold Medal games will be announced at a later date.
All of the United States games will be streamed LIVE via NBC Sports.com LIVE Extra - thats if your cable company has worked out a deal with NBC Universal. I know Time Warner Cable is not on board. Doesn't look like any non United States games - be it in the Quarterfinals/Semifinals/Bronze Medal/Gold Medal games - will be streamed.
NBCSN will be using TSNs announcers for the games - Paul Romanuk (Play By Play) and Shane Hindy (Analyst). NBCSN will produce their own pre-game, intermission and post-game with Ross Thaler and Anson Carter providing analysis.
