NBC Sports will air an unprecedented 80-plus TV hours of figure skating coverage this season, starting in two weeks with Skate America.

NBC (30-plus hours), NBCSN (50-plus hours) and Olympic Channel: Home of Team USA will combine to air the Grand Prix series this fall, the U.S. Championships in January and the world championships in March, plus other events.

NBC Sports Gold will feature live and on-demand streaming of every skater in every discipline throughout the season ad-free through the “Figure Skating Pass.”

It all starts in Everett, Wash., with the return of world champion Nathan Chen.

Chen, the first skater to land seven quadruple jumps at one event, bounced back from his 17th-place Olympic short program to top the Olympic free skate (leaping to fifth overall), then routed the world championships field by the largest margin in history.

The Grand Prix series also includes Olympic champions Yuzuru Hanyu and Alina Zagitova, as well as U.S. champion Bradie Tennell, who beat Olympic silver medalist Yevgenia Medvedeva at her first competition this season for her first international victory.
