There official coverage begins at 8pm on February 6 and the2014 Olympic Opening Ceremony will not be held on Friday, Feb. 7, 2014.

Mark Lazarus, chairman of NBC Sports Group said: "We want to put context to it, with the full pageantry it deserves." NBC executives believe that a simple live stream of the event without a description does not make sense. He also said, "We are looking to maximize the viewing experience for our audience."

UK viewers will have plenty of choice with BBC Sport streaming live digital coverage of the Winter Games on all devices including computers, tablets and mobile. In total the BBC will cover over 650 hours of live action from Sochi and Snowboarding will feature heavily in the schedule.

Ed Leigh and Tim Warwood will be the main commentators for the snowboarding and freestyle skiing action on the BBC.
