NEW YORK  -- The cable networks CNBC, MSNBC and USA will offer 124 hours of coverage during the Winter Olympics in Russia this February.

NBC Sports says Monday that the cable networks will have their specialties. CNBC will concentrate on curling, showing the Olympics primarily during the 5 to 8 p.m. ET break between the markets closing and prime time.

USA will present hockey with some curling during daytime hours in the United States. MSNBC will also show hockey and curling.

NBC has not announced its schedule for the broadcast network or the NBC Sports cable network, but has said it will live stream all Olympic events on its Olympics website.
