It’s an easy choice when deciding what to watch Friday night. The quandary comes in choosing how to watch the Opening Ceremonies: via live streaming at 6 a.m. or as a prepackaged, prime-time event. Either way, expect cold performers, cold athletes and cold spectators;North and South Korea marching in together under the Unification Flag; and the U.S. team sporting some eye-catching gloves.

There is a 14-hour time difference. Events listed here are those shown on that particular day in Eastern Standard Time.

(Events in the TV listings are tape-delayed unless indicated as LIVE. OAR is Olympic Athletes from Russia.)
