The Sochi Winter Olympics 2014 are officially starting today with the opening ceremony. The competitions at the Sochi Olympics already on Thursday. The first gold medal will be up for grabs on Saturday. 2,500 athletes from 86 countries compete for the medals in 98 competitions. The first event will be Slop Style for Snowboarders. There will be 2 weeks of winter competitions. To follow all the events you have to look for NBC. The network is the official TV station to broadcast the Sochi Olympics in the United States.
NBC will kick off the Olympics coverage tonight at 7:30/6:30c with a Bob Costas interview of the President following the Opening Ceremony for the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics. Why do we have to sit through a President interview ahead of each big sports event? I have no clue.
It is worth noting that the Opening Ceremony is already taking place 11am ET. NBC is holding back the coverage for primetime.
Besides on NBC TV channel you can watch also the NBC Sports Network channel. Also some Olympics coverage will also be on CNBC, MSNBC and USA Network.
