Sochi Olympics TV Schedule on NBC, NBCSN, MSNBC, CNBC and USA

Posted by | January 9, 2014 at 9:59 PM

Dates and times for every telecast of the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics on the networks of NBC.

The NBC family of networks is scheduled to televise over 500 hours of Winter Olympics coverage starting February 6. NBCSN leads the way with 230 hours, with coverage typically airing from 3:00 AM to 7:00 PM ET each day. In a new wrinkle this year, NBCSN will air the figure skating events live (generally from late morning to mid-afternoon).

The regular NBC broadcast network is scheduled to televise 185 hours, most of which will air in primetime. Unlike the London Summer Olympics two years ago, NBC’s afternoon coverage from Sochi will be quite limited — a two-hour window on weekdays (3-5 PM ET) and up to four hours on weekends (2-6 PM, 2:30-6 PM or 3-6 PM ET). NBC will air live coverage of the gold medal match in both women’s hockey (Thu., 2/20 at Noon ET) and men’s hockey (Sun., 2/23 at 6:30 AM ET).

MSNBC, CNBC and USA Network will air the remaining hours. MSNBC and USA Network will primarily air hockey, while CNBC is scheduled to exclusively air curling.

    Disappointing schedule by NBC broadcast. A couple of things really stick out to me:
    1. Weekend daytime coverage is minimal. They only begin at 2 or 3pm.
    2. The morning coverage on NBCSN focuses only on figure skating. What about the other sports? No live skiing coverage?
    3. No hockey on NBC until Gold Medal game. I was shocked that NBC did not cover the Saturday, 7:30am game between US and Russia. I understand NBC not wanting to televise weekday mornings because of the Today Show, however, US-Russia on Saturday morning, there is no excuse.

    • David

      Why does #3 surprise you? Why shouldn’t NBCSN be showing hockey, especially when that’s all that’s going on around that time? If you don’t get NBCSN, I understand your gripe, but why does that game need to be on NBC rather than the network that shows more hockey than any other?

    • Everett Will

      NBC has an edition of Today on Saturday mornings. More importantly, broadcast stations have to fulfill the children’s educational television requirement imposed by the FCC. Saturday morning network preempts can be done (Wimbledon for decades), but they requires a lot of maneuvering that NBC decided just wasn’t necessary in this case.

  • Fruttel1

    Can someone please help me out: Eastern Time, is that meant to be the time in Boston and such? (I’m in the Netherlands, so I’ll have to know hów many hours difference there are between your time and mine. :)

    • Paulsen

      Yep — Eastern Time includes Boston, N.Y., etc.

      • Fruttel1

        Thanks for replying, much appreciated, Paulsen!
        Have a good day.
