The Opening Ceremony is virtually the only #Olympic event that #NBC isn't streaming online, a decision made to bolster its prime-time broadcast.
Large-scale pageantry opened the #Sochi Olympics on Friday, in a symbolically rich Opening Ceremony that was marred by an early and highly visible mistake — one of five massive #OlympicRings failed to fully appear.
