What time is it in Sochi, Russia? For those who are watching the 2014 Winter Olympics on TV or live streaming online, that question is an important one.
NBC is offering free online coverage of all 98 sporting events, but many will be on tape delay due to the time difference.
If you're trying to figure out what time it is in the U.S. when an event is broadcast live from Russia, here's the scoop: If you live in the Eastern Time Zone, Sochi is 9 hours ahead. If you live in the Pacific Time Zone, Sochi is 12 hours ahead.
That means you're going to have to get up mighty early if you want to watch some of the live streaming coverage of the 2014 Winter Olympics.
For those who want to know what time it is in Sochi but don't feel like counting on their fingers, the Time and Date World Clock is a handy tool to use. Enter "Sochi" in the box and it will not only display the current time and date, it will generate a list of upcoming live events at the 2014 Winter Olympics.
What time is the 2014 Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony? If you want to watch the opening ceremony live on Friday, February 7, that's not possible here in the U.S. However, NBC will be broadcasting the entire event on tape delay.
