Tonight NBC will air the prime time broadcast of events from day 1 of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. The broadcast will air in prime time at 8PM eastern. However, with the time delay, to truly see events live, requires watching the Olympics online.
Thankfully, NBC has made that possible. With an immense broadcast control room and hundreds of cameras everywhere, NBC will allow viewers to watch the 2014 Winter Olympics online live via free video streams.

To allow viewers the free online video stream of the Winter Olympics from Sochi, NBC has created a dedicated web site for the 2014 games at nbcolympics.com. Additionally they are streaming live Olympic video through their NBC sports live extra site, and via the free downloadable apps.
By downloading the apps and using them, fans can watch the winter Olympics on their smartphones, tablets, or laptop computers.
Tonight’s prime time television coverage from Sochi will feature “The first-ever Olympic team figure skating event is underway with the men’s and pairs short programs,” according to NBC.
