    Many people throughout the world will be firmly fixed on the Russian resort town of Sochi as the city plays host to the 22nd Winter Olympics. The Olympics broadcast kicked off in the US at 7:30 pm Eastern last night with a time-delayed showing of the games’ opening ceremonies. As in the past years, matches will be aired at varying times throughout the remainder of the games.

    NBC Sports provides an online programming guide for American viewers, while CBC covers Canada and the BBC maintains a similar listing for those in the UK. Fans in other countries should consult the official Sochi 2014 schedule to determine when and where to watch certain competitions.
