Your Guide to the Rio 2016 Olympic Games Sponsors from 2ndVote

With the RNC and DNC Conventions in the rearview mirror, many American television sets will take a take two-week break from politics and turn to NBC’s coverage of the 2016 Summer Olympic Games that start tonight in Rio de Janeiro.

The 2012 Summer Games in London was the most-watched television event in U.S. history with over 217 million viewers nearly doubling the record for the Super Bowl. And, just like the Super Bowl, corporations will make significant investments for advertising and other partnerships in support of the production and coverage of the 2016 Rio Games.
