(AP) Prime-time coverage of the Winter Olympics will start a day early next year in Sochi.

NBC officials said at a news conference Tuesday that the network will televise events the night of Thursday, Feb. 6, 2014. That night's coverage will include slopestyle snowboarding, likely starring American boarder Shaun White.

Such coverage will precede the opening ceremony for the first time. With 12 new events added for 2014, the IOC needed to expand the length of the games, which will start on Thursday.
