So, the Games are 14 hours ahead of US east coast time? So, the events that will be primetime live for us will be happening in 10 am until about 1 pm local time? In theory we could get some good events completely live.

That said, I haven't read too much about the broadcasting yet, but assuming the major events are late afternoon through early evening there, that means they'll be 3 am until like 8 am here.

Maybe we can use this thread to keep track of what's what while happening live and maybe another non-spoilered thread for those that are able to avoid results until NBC broadcasts it that evening?

I heard they're showing live.

10am there, 8PM here previous day if my math is correct

Major question is for the US west coast

So they'll run the popular things around the US prime time? That puts a lot of Europe in the middle of the night.

The hockey schedule is bizarre, games either at noon or 9pm local time to fit into European or North American prime time.

I have a feeling they'll regret putting the gold medal game in North American prime time (the bronze is during European prime time).

Anyone else having trouble accessing the streams on nbcolympics? Chrome (on a mac) won't let me login with FIOS (this is a frequent issue for me, though, and i think it's a chrome-fios thing, not nbc), and safari keeps letting me login but then says I need to verify again. Shouldn't need access to their olympics channel to stream something on nbc sports, right?

edit: nm. seems that posting on sosh fixed the issue!

(can we gripe here). I heard a rumor NBC was going to broadcast the opening ceremony tonight. After watching for a half hour, I am starting to wonder if we will see it, or just more BS

More BS,

3 hours to fill.

The parade of nations in the winter can't be more than 75 minutes

speak of the devil . . .

I have not been following closely, but switched on a few moments ago to catch the parade of nations. How come no one is at that stadium? It's spooky and weird. Norovirus?
I think the lower seats are for the athletes.

They're in the upper level and the athletes will be in the lower level

And fabulous username by the way

What's the record for medals in a Winter Games?

Would be funny if OAR broke that

Drones were great.

Kinda hoping one of the front skiers wiped out and took out everyone behind them

There are people but each seat has an led screen in front of it. So you don’t see the people when they are lit.

Where's BHK? Stiff shoulder or did he give the Committee the middle finger?


Yuna Grace Kelly Kim was terrific
No other choice really

Is there a way to stream events live, but audio only? I am going to be driving during some events I am interested in and don’t want to burn video levels of data to listen.
