Two preview Netflix Winter Olympics shows will be available on this platform starting on January 15, up until February 25.

These Netflix shows are probably just going to be a sneak-a-peek of what is about to come. It won't be live-coverage style, so it might not be exactly what you are looking to get from an Olympics programming. However, they're going to serve as a good warm-up.

The series is going to have two parts, named "Go for the Gold" and "Meet Team USA". The topic of the series is going to be to explore the American team. It's going to talk about their private and professional backgrounds as well as their role in this year's Olympics. Some stars that you can expect to see featured are going to be Shaun White and Lindsey Vonn, among many others.

What Is NBC's Real Intent?

Sports programming carries a big piece of the media streaming cake, so it seems strange that anyone would let go of even a part of it. This can tell us a lot about the intent NBC has. Its idea is to advertise their own programming and just make you more impatient about it. NBC's Winter Olympics programming will focus on live coverage and daily analyses, so that will be the basis of their success. But, who knows, in the near future, maybe media streaming companies will be able to take a more important role in ground-breaking events such as this one is.

Final Thoughts

Do you think NBC's plan to offer two Netflix Winter Olympics shows will work? Will they boost the attention their coverage gets with this move? It definitely is a new and a radical idea.
