Opening ceremonies for the 2014 Olympics are on Friday, February 7th, but the games officially begin tonight, on the 6th, and run all the way through the 23rd. Are you ready? (Olympic freestyle mogul skier Heather McPhie is!)
In the U.S., NBC is the official broadcaster of the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi. (They were also the network to watch for the 2012 Summer Games and will be the host all the way through 2020, thanks to an almost $4.4 billion contract.) NBC will offer live and tape-delayed coverage of events on television via NBC, MSNBC, NBC Sports, CNBC, and its other channels. The network will also stream all events online and via the NBC Sports Live Extra app. All of this means that you are in for a lot of sports!
We’re most excited about the opening ceremonies, which happen the evening of Friday, February 7th; the ice skating competitions, which begin on Saturday, February 8th; seeing Lolo Jones compete on the U.S. bobsled team on Tuesday, February 18th; watching Shaun White, the skiers, the hockey games, the curlers… OK. Maybe we’re most excited about the entire 2.5 weeks of athletic competition!
