Starting time and what to expect as NBC begins coverage tonight of the XXI Winter Olympic Opening Ceremonies.
After the longest torch relay in Winter Olympic history, one that spent more than 100 days on the road, covered 28,000 miles, and passed through some 12,000 hands, it's finally arrived in Vancouver.
Tune in tonight to NBC at 4:30 p.m. Pacific Time (7:30 p.m. Eastern Time) for starting coverage of the XXI Winter Olympic Opening Ceremonies. The actual Opening Ceremony kicks off at 6 p.m. in Vancouver (9pm in New York). Canada has invested billions of dollars over the past seven years to host 5,000 athletes and 2 million visitors in Vancouver and Whistler. The host city is operating a website with the complete schedule and results of all events.
