((FREE)) Watch Sochi Winter Olympics 2014 Live Stream Online Games in HQ TV

February 7, 2014

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.

Sochi Winter Olympics 2014 Live: Performers in the opening and closing ceremonies (estimate): 3,000 | The performers are “young artists from middle and higher art and drama schools” chosen from auditions in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Krasnodar, Novorossiysk and Armavir.

Athletes participating in Sochi (estimate): 2,800 | The contingent heading to Russia includes three independent Olympic participants hailing from India, two members on the Jamaican bobsled team, and a luger from the South Pacific nation of Tonga.

Cost to build the Fisht Olympic Stadium (in millions of dollars): 600 | The 40,000-seater in Sochi’s Olympic Park will be the setting for the opening and closing ceremonies. After the Games, it will be used for Russian national soccer team matches and serve as one of the venues for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

U.S. athletes competing in Sochi: 230 | Some of the notables include snowboarder Shaun White, Patrick Kane of the NHL’s Chicago Blackhawks, U.S. figure skating national champion Gracie Gold, Alpine skiing veteran Bode Miller, and track and field hurdler turned bobsledder Lolo Jones.

Number of medal events: 98 | The U.S. and Canada are expected to be near the top of the medal standings with multiple golds expected in snowboarding. The latter is also a favorite to defend its Olympic hockey title from 2010. Norway, with a population of only 5 million, has a chance to top both countries in the overall medal count and will likely produce the bulk of its medals in cross-country skiing.

Countries participating: 88 | The U.S., Australia, Canada, the Netherlands and Switzerland will send their largest Winter Olympics contingent ever to Sochi.

Cost of Sochi Games (in billions of dollars): 51 | Originally tabbed at $12 billion, the final price tag for the 2014 Games will shatter the $40 billion cost of Beijing 2008. Two December 2013 suicide bombings in Volgograd, which is a little more than 400 miles from Sochi, raised concerns about safety in the Black Sea coastal town. More than 37,000 police officers from around the country will patrol Sochi during the Games.

New Olympic events: 12 | Women’s ski jumping will be contested in an Olympics for the first time, as will a team figure skating evemt. X Games viewers will also get a treat with the addition of slopestyle snowboarding and skiing to the Winter Olympics slate.

Average February temperature in Sochi (in Celsius): 9 | Any precipitation that falls during the first week of the Games is expected to come in the form of rain. Sochi will be the warmest city to ever host the Winter Games.

The Minnesota Wild have announced that Koivu hasn’t recovered enough from his injury to participate in the Olympics.

After losing Valtteri Filppula to a broken ankle earlier Friday morning, Finland was dealt yet another blow when Mikko Koivu announced that he wouldn’t participate in the Winter Olympics in Sochi, via the Minnesota Wild.

Koivu described his injury as “a different type of pain. With this, it’s good for 10-15 minutes, then the pain builds up,” via the Wild’s official Twitter feed.

In other tweets, Koivu said that if he thought playing would help him feel better, he would go to Sochi, but he will be taking a break from skating and has to think of the Wild as well.

It will be the first time since 2002 that a Finnish Olympic men’s hockey team will not have a Koivu on the roster, as Mikko’s older brother Saku Koivu also dropped out, feeling he wasn’t healthy enough to be deserving of a spot. The 2002 Olympics were the only time since professionals entered the Olympics that Finland failed to medal.

Replacements for Filppula and Koivu are not yet official, Sochi Winter Olympics 2014 Live.
