The Ultimate Sochi TV Guide

The Sochi Winter Olympics begin Thursday and there’s one question on everyone’s minds: When does the figure skating start?

In case you’re among the many who just want to see women in bedazzled leotards do triple lutzes, or maybe you’re just interested in the U.S. vs. Russia hockey match up or the snowboarding finals, we’ve narrowed down the glut of Olympics coverage to the ones you want to see—and where and when to see them.

This year, six events have been added to the events schedule for the Winter Olympics, an effort to attract a wider audience than ever before.  They are: Ski Halfpipe (Men and Women), Women’s Ski Jumping, Biathlon Mixed Ski Relay, Figure Skating Team Event, and the Luge Team Relay.  These new events make the schedule for the three weeks more jam-packed than ever, and gives each country a few more shots at racking up more medals.   

So set up your TiVo. (Sochi is nine hours ahead of eastern time, so unless it says “Live,” the events are on tape delay.)
