The 2014 Winter Olympics, officially the XXII Olympic Winter Games, or the 22nd Winter Olympics, is a major international multi-sport event being held in Sochi, Russia.
Scheduled for 7–23 February 2014, opening rounds in figure skating, skiing, and snowboard competitions were held on the eve of the Opening Ceremony, 6 February 2014. Both the Olympics and 2014 Winter Paralympics are being organized by the Sochi Organizing Committee (SOC). Sochi was selected as the host city in July 2007, during the 119th IOC Session held in Guatemala City. It is the first Olympics in Russia since the breakup of the USSR in 1991. The USSR was the host nation for the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow.
98 events in 15 winter sport disciplines are being held in the Games. A number of new competitions—a total of 12 accounting for gender—will be held during the Games, including biathlon mixed relay, women’s ski jumping, mixed-team figure skating, mixed-team luge, half-pipe skiing, ski and snowboard slopestyle, and snowboard parallel slalom. The events will be held around two clusters of new venues; an Olympic Park constructed in Sochi’s Imeretinsky Valley on the coast of the Black Sea, with Fisht Olympic Stadium and the Games’ indoor venues located within walking distance, and snow events in the resort settlement of Krasnaya Polyana.
In preparation, organizers focused on modernizing the telecommunications, electric power, and transportation infrastructures of the region. While originally budgeted at US$12 billion, various factors caused the budget to expand to over US$51 billion, surpassing the estimated $44 billion cost of the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing as the most expensive Olympics in history.
The lead-up to these Games was marked by major controversies, including allegations of corruption leading to cost overruns, concerns for the safety and human rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people before and after the Games due to the country’s 2013 ban on “gay propaganda”, which has led to ongoing Olympic-focussed protests, and various security concerns over threats by jihadist groups tied to the insurgency in the North Caucasus.
Sochi Winter Olympics 2014 Live, The Sochi 2014 Olympics started yesterday. Of course, the best way to enjoy the Winter Games is on a big screen television sitting on a comfy couch, but unfortunately, not everyone has the ability to do so. Even if you are on the go or without cable during the Olympics, you can still enjoy the games from a PC, Mac, Android device, iPhone, iPad or iPod.
If you live in the United States, the only way to get an official Olympics stream is via NBC.
NBC is offering live streaming coverage of all 15 sports and 98 medal events on its website. Most of the live streaming is only available if you sign in with a cable provider, but NBC will give a 30-minute temporary viewing pass to Olympics fans without cable.
A more portable option is the NBC Sports Live Extra app for iOS devices.
“Watch every event during the 2014 Winter Olympics LIVE for FREE with NBC Sports Live Extra, and set push notifications for event start times,” the app description says. “Download now on your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch and stream the thousands of live sporting events that air…”
Not everyone is a fan of NBC’s Olympics streaming, however, as users have already complained of technical difficulties.
“9 minutes into women’s moguls, which NBC is touting on its Olympic web site, the live stream stops & says coverage has concluded. OK,” Travis Waldron said via Twitter.
“Hmmm…I have lost my NBC live stream of the moguls. Very frustrating. #letmewatch #remotecoveragewoes,” Lindsay Gibbs agreed.
In addition, Canadians can stream the game free via BBC, which will stream 650 hours’ worth of Olympics content for free, and CBC, which has 12 different live streams.
If you are in the United States but want to enjoy the Canadian streams, you must trick the websites into thinking you are in Canada or the United Kingdom by using a virtual private network service. A popular one is TunnelBear, which is an app compatible with PCs, Macs, Android phones and iOS devices.
