NBC Sports pens rights deal with USA Swimming

The NBC Sports Group division of US media company NBCUniversal has signed a long-term media-rights agreement with the USA Swimming governing body.

The deal grants NBC Sports exclusive television and digital rights to a number of USA Swimming-organised events until 2024.

NBC Sports will provide extensive coverage of events such as the Pro Swim Series, National Championships, winter National Championships and the Pan Pacific Swimming Championships, a once-per-quad international competition featuring the United States, Australia, Canada and Japan.

Coverage will be provided across NBC, NBCSN, and the International Olympic Committee’s Olympic Channel platform. NBCUniversal agreed a content partnership with the IOC and the United States Olympic Committee in December.

Complete programming information will be announced at a later date.
