Once every four years your regularly scheduled programs are interrupted to bring you the Winter Olympics.
This year, the Olympics will be held in Turin, Italy. There is a seven-hour time difference between Italy’s Central European Time Zone and Missouri’s Central Standard Time. The majority of events will not be broadcast live because of this time difference. Some live events will be broadcast in the very early morning to midafternoon, however.
NBC, USA, MSNBC and CNBC will show different events throughout the day and evening. The more popular events will be shown in the prime time spot on NBC. The majority of ice hockey and curling matches will be broadcast in the morning or afternoon on USA, MSNBC and CNBC.
Events in this year’s Olympics are: Alpine skiing, biathlon, bobsled, cross-country skiing, curling, figure skating, freestyle skiing, ice hockey, luge, short track, skeleton, ski jumping, snowboarding, speedskating and added for the first time, Nordic combined.
