NBC released its ambitious, 416-hour TV schedule for the Winter Games that begin Feb. 10 in Turin, Italy.
The network opted not to broadcast the figure-skating competition live.
Instead, skating — traditionally, the most-watched event of the games — will air on tape after 8 p.m. here, about six hours after the competition will have taken place in Italy.
Hockey, however, will for the most part be live on TV — though the time difference means the games will be on in mid-afternoon, U.S. time.
Coverage of the games will sprawl over 16 days (Feb. 10-26) and air on seven different channels including NBC, USA, MSNBC, CNBC, NBC HD, Universal HD and Telemundo, NBC's Spanish-language network.
