NBC Sports will begin coverage of the 2014 Winter Olympics from Sochi, Russia, next Feb. 6, one day before the opening ceremony, the network announced Tuesday.

It marks the first time any U.S. media company has dedicated prime-time coverage to Olympic competition — Winter or Summer or — prior to the Opening ceremony.

Team figure skating and men’s and women’s slopestyle snowboarding, which are new Olympic events, along with women’s freestyle moguls, will be shown on Feb. 6.
