The 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi kick off today, February 6th with preliminary events, and the Opening Ceremonies tomorrow. You can watch all of the action in the NBC Sports Live Extra app. NBC Universal is set to host the entire 2014 Winter Olympics, and have released two new apps for the Sochi Olympics. NBC Sports Live Extra will stream every single one of the 98 medal events, which accounts for 1,000 live hours across 15 sports. Beginning with the Opening Ceremonies today, July 27th, everything will be live within this app on either iPhone or iPad.
There is also on-demand video, since the live aspect may be a bit tough with the hour difference to Russia. The app provides live video with connection to most cable, and satellite providers. There’s also the NBC Olympics Highlights and Results app which is more of a score viewer, but will also have video highlights, and cover everything that happens at the 2014 games. Both apps are free and universal, and you should get downloading as soon as possible, because the Olympics are just underway with preliminaries.
