If you’re a Winter Olympics enthusiast, we hope you have at least 835 hours to spare over the next two weeks. That’s how much coverage of the Games you can expect starting Friday, February 12, via NBC, USA Network, MSNBC, CNBC, Universal HD, and NBCOlympics.com.

The more casual viewer will want to keep abreast of the Olympics as well, lest you be left out of the daily watercooler conversations. After all, NBC anticipates that its coverage of the Vancouver Games will win all or almost every night in primetime for the next 17 days.

To help everyone keep tabs on what events to catch and when, here’s an overview of the Winter Olympics. Fancast will also bring you a daily “What to Watch” guide detailing when and where to watch. NBC Sports also offers complete listings here. (* denotes a medal event)
