CNBC will carry 73 hours of Olympic boxing coverage, including the debut of women’s boxing. Same-day coverage will air from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays, with double the daily content on weekends. KNBC sports anchor Fred Roggin will serve as Olympic boxing host.

Bravo will be the hub of NBC’s Olympic tennis coverage, offering 56 hours over seven days. Pat O’Brien will anchor.

Previously, NBCUniversal announced that Telemundo would provide 173 hours of Spanish-language Olympic coverage. In addition, NBCOlympics.com is streaming every event for the first time ever, totaling more than 3,500 hours. Most of that streaming content will be available to authenticated cable, satellite or telco customers.
