Rio Olympics: How to watch Sunday

The Detroit News

If you didn’t get enough Olympic television with the Opening Ceremony and Day 1, there’s more … and more and more.

Day 2 begins again at 7 a.m. (thanks to CBC) and runs through 1:35 a.m. Monday courtesy of NBC, which paid $7.75 billion to extend its contract through the 2032 Games.

And NBC officials are making it pay off with 11 of the 12 stations available in Metro Detroit under their control.

German teammates Tina Punzel and Nora Subschinski prepare for the synchronized diving event Sunday.
