How to watch the Olympics

There's a massive time difference from the United States to South Korea, so catching Friday's Opening Ceremony live means you'll have to be awake from 5 a.m. to 7 a.m. local time. 

The Olympics actually begin on Thursday, a day before the Opening Ceremony, and they run through Sunday, Feb. 25. 

NBC Universal (NBC, NBCSN, etc.) will have complete coverage. Check out detailed TV listings at Detailed TV listings at NBCOlympics.com
