NBC kicks off coverage of the 2014 Olympic Games Thursday night with NBC Primetime. In the Twin Cities, all primetime coverage is scheduled to be broadcast on Kare 11. Much of the primetime coverage, including that on February 6, begins at 7 p.m. central time. That is true of Thursday’s Olympic coverage, which will be limited to NBC Primetime.
Because the opening ceremony won’t be held until February 7, many of the sporting events will not have begun on February 6. Exceptions include figure skating, snowboarding and freestyle skiing. All three sports are expected to see television air time during NBC Primetime on February 6.
On Thursday night, figure skating and snowboarding each will feature brand new events introduced to the Olympic Games for the first time in 2014. For figure skating, it will be the team event. For snowboarding, it will be men’s and women’s slopestyle. Both new events begin on February 6.
Here’s the full television schedule for Thursday, February 6:
NBC Primetime, 7 p.m., Kare 11
Events include men’s and women’s slopestyle, women’s moguls and the figure skating team event.
