Olympic TV schedule online?

Recommended Posts

With the time difference between here and Italy, I was wondering if anyone knows if there is a TV broadcast schedule, specifically for Men's Ice Hockey, available.

If, because of the time difference, the games played there are shown live here end up during the morning and afternoon, I'd like to actually schedule some time off from work.

However, if the games are shown here tape delayed in prime time, I don't want to waste any days off for no reason.

Anyone have any solid information about this?

All men and women hockey games will be shown live on NBC and its networks.

All 54 games of both the men's and women's hockey tournaments will be seen live on the networks of NBC Universal. This will mark the first time in U.S. television history that the entire Olympic women's tournament will be televised. All Team USA hockey games and the gold medal games, both men's and women's, will be broadcast commercial-free and in their entirety. The women's gold medal game will air live on President's Day, Monday, Feb. 20, on NBC. The men's gold medal game will air live on the final day of Olympic competition, Sunday, Feb. 26, on NBC.

"Our hockey coverage is a fan's dream come true, every U.S. game will be seen commercial free and in its entirety," Ebersol said. "Die-hard fans should mark their calendars for Wednesday, Feb. 22. It will be the single greatest day in hockey - all of the game's biggest stars will compete in the men's quarterfinals as the world's eight best teams all face off."

Bill Clement, the former NHL All-Star and "NHL on NBC" host, will host hockey coverage on USA, MSNBC and CNBC, his fourth Olympic broadcast assignment and third for NBC. Ray Ferraro, an 18-year NHL veteran and "NHL on NBC" studio analyst, will provide analysis alongside Clement for men's games. Cammi Granato, a 1998 Olympic gold medalist and 2002 Olympic silver medalist, will work with Clement for women's games. Ferraro and Granato were married in 2004.

Mike Emrick (play-by-play), John Davidson (analyst) and Pierre McGuire (reporter) will comprise the lead men's Olympic broadcast team. Emrick will pair with AJ Mleczko, a 1998 Olympic gold medalist and 2002 Olympic silver medalist, as the lead team on women's games, with McGuire reporting.

Almost every other mens hockey game is MSNBC except the USA games.

All Olympic action is on NBC, MSNBC, CNBC, USA, Bravo and Spanish network Telemundo from February 10-26.

Here's where the schedule for all the events, just type your zip code for ur NBC affiliate

NBCOlympics.com - TV Listings

Can you imagine Telemundo calling the hockey games? GOOOOOOAAAAALLLLLL!

Actually when I was on vacation in the Dominican Republic 2 years ago, I saw hockey on ESPN en Espanol, and they don't say GOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLLLLL as you would expect.

They instead say SCCCCCOOOOOOOOOOOOOORRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEE (No lie whatsoever)
