In just days, athletes from all over the world will compete in the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.

With the time change, some events will be happening while the West Coast of the United States is either just going to bed or just waking up.

NBC 7 will provide prime time coverage of the Olympics every night as well as the ability for you to watch events live as they happen on your computer, your tablet and via mobile.

If it's too much of a challenge to watch the event live, you can catch on-demand replays of events through a free app.

Here's what you need to know: will be your resource for information like event schedules, medal count, athlete bios, athlete results and the all-important TV listings.

To make sure your TV listings reflect Pacific Time, you'll need to enter your zip code to identify your location. Once that's done, you'll see San Diego-specific stories and get the right time to set that DVR.

On the NBCOlympics page, you can watch live streaming events but you'll want to take a moment to check your system and make sure it has what's necessary.
