Peacock is harnessing A.I. technology to present “Your Daily Olympic Recap on Peacock,” a first-of-its-kind, personalized experience complementing our comprehensive coverage of the 2024 Paris Olympic Games.

In collaboration with Emmy®-winning, Hall of Fame announcer Al Michaels and powered by generative A.I. and A.I. voice synthesis technology, “Your Daily Olympic Recap on Peacock” will provide fans with their own customized playlist featuring highlights of the events most relevant to them from the previous day. Each compilation will feature clips from Olympics coverage and be narrated by a high-quality A.I. re-creation of Michaels’ voice, which was trained using his past appearances on NBC and matches his signature expertise and elocution.

“Your Daily Olympic Recap on Peacock” is tailored to the Olympics fan on-the-go and will be available to Peacock subscribers starting July 27.

“When I was approached about this, I was skeptical but obviously curious,” said Al Michaels. “Then I saw a demonstration detailing what they had in mind. I said, ‘I’m in.’”

Nearly 7 million personalized variants of “Your Daily Olympic Recap on Peacock” could be streamed across the U.S. during the Games, all generated by pulling live coverage from Paris where up to 40 Olympics events will be happening concurrently each day.
