Infographic: The Advertising Olympics

National TV ad spending in the 2014 Winter Olympics reached a record of $977 million, easily beating the previous high of $831 million set in 2006, while the 539 total hours aired by NBCU across its broadcast and cable networks also set a record and represented an increase of nearly 25 percent from 2010.

These milestones are likely to be eclipsed by the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea, showing the continued strength of event-based TV.
