With the 2014 Sochi Olympics finally kicking off on Feb. 6, many of you will be wondering where to watch the Games — live — 24/7. Get the scoop on where and when to watch your favorite events below!
NBC has finally embraced Olympic livestreaming, and we at HollywoodLife.com couldn’t be more thrilled.
Winter Olympics Live Stream — Where To Watch The 2014 Sochi Olympic Games Online
With 15 sports, 18 days, and 95 medal events to cover, NBC certainly has a lot of Sochi to cover! Luckily, the Peacock has decided to embrace the modern age and livestream everything directly online. Those who want to watch their favorite events — like figure skating and hockey — in primetime can still check in with Bob Costas and the gang, but those of us who need our 24/7 fix can get it at the link below, essentially eliminating that pesky nine-hour time difference (from Eastern Standard Time) that has made Olympics viewing so difficult in the past:
Beginning on Thursday, Feb. 6, with preliminary rounds of Snowboarding, Freestyle Skiing and Figure Skating, every phase of every competition from all 15 sports will be streamed on the site AND via mobile app.
Television coverage will also expand to 18 days for the first time in Winter Games history, with the addition of a Thursday night NBC Primetime show on Feb. 6, before the Opening Ceremonies on Friday, Feb. 7. Live daytime broadcasts begin Saturday, Feb. 8, on the NBC Sports Network.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Will you be watching the events live, or will you wait until they air on TV in the States? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
