NBCUniversal will provide more than 1,539 hours of coverage for the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games across NBC, NBCSN, CNBC, MSNBC, USA Network and NBCOlympics.com. It is an unprecedented level of coverage for an Olympic Winter Games, and will surpass the coverage of the 2006 and 2010 Games combined.
The Sochi Games marks the first time NBC will air Olympic primetime coverage before the Opening Ceremony. The primetime broadcast on Thursday, Feb. 6, is scheduled to include competition in the Olympic debuts of men's and women's snowboard slopestyle, team figure skating and women's freestyle moguls.
Coverage highlights include:
  • The six NBCUniversal platforms – NBC (185 hours), NBCSN (230 hours), CNBC (36 hours), MSNBC (45 hours), USA Network (43 hours) and NBCOlympics.com (1,000+ hours) – will offer the most in-depth coverage in Olympic Winter Games history.
