2014 Winter Olympics Printable Schedule

I make a printable television schedule every Olympics so my family can keep track of the events we don’t want to miss.  For whatever reason, for the last few Olympics, news sites have been creating convoluted schedules that require a lot of clicking.  I need to see it all written out in a simple manner, so I create these printable television Olympic schedules for myself and put them online in case someone else wants it too.

After the last Summer Olympics, someone contacted me and told me that a link to my printable schedule was being passed around the blind community because the format works well with a screen reader.  Which is just so damn cool.  I love the idea of the world coming together over these games.  So a special hello to anyone who is hearing this from a screen reader.

I’ll be keeping the printable schedule up-to-date in case anything changes.  I had to make it as a page, or every time I added to it, it would reset the permalink and you wouldn’t be able to find it again.

You can access the schedule here.  If you want to help spread word, you can post this link on Twitter or Facebook: http://tinyurl.com/2014olympicschedule.

So, which event are you most excited to see in the 2014 Olympics?

Maybe we’ll watch some figure skating, but I also like the skiing…

I won’t be watching any of it, and honestly, I’m sad that you won’t be boycotting, too.

It’s a difficult boycott because not watching a US broadcast in the US doesn’t reach the target of Putin. Not attending or sending athletes affects Putin, but not watching from the US only affects US entities such as NBC. I want a strong message to reach Putin when it comes to his treatment of the LGBT community. But I’m not sure boycotting watching the Olympics from the US sends a strong message in the same way that withholding tourist dollars does.

THANK YOU! This is genius!! I had so many issues trying to figure out what was what during the Summer ’12 Games…this is a lifesaver!

That is a great idea! And I love that the blind community was able to use it too.

Love this! The schedules do completely suck normally. I’ve added it to my favorites bar. :)

I totally agree–Putin doesn’t give a damn if you don’t watch, and it doesn’t affect him in the least.

PS The schedule is awesome, and I feel in love with SBX during the last winter games. I’m also oddly attracted to speed skating, but it might not be as much fun without Apollo Ohno. And, figure skating. But now my dilemma will be to figure out how to watch it. As I discovered from watching the summer Olympics, it’s tough to riot for your country when watching from a different country (they don’t show the Americans during early rounds, for example)

9 Queenie { 01.08.14 at 10:56 pm }

Root. I really try not to riot during sporting events.

HAHA, Queenie! Had to comment that I laughed pretty hard at your typo.

Mel, thanks for the printable schedule. It helps, a lot. I look forward to the figure skating and ski jumping.

That is pretty cool!

12 Bill { 01.12.14 at 12:30 pm }

This is great. Do you know of a source for something similar for the other networks (USA, MSNBC, etc) that will be showing Olympics events?

Thank you! I found this page via Google, looking for a “printable olympic schedule 2014″. I too cannot stand all the clicking and scrolling that is required to check the NBC air schedule. Our local newspaper used to publish a TV schedule that we could hang on the fridge.

14 Charleen { 01.24.14 at 4:43 pm }

Love this! I have been searching for half hour for a printable schedule and came across this! Perfect! Thank you for taking the time to do this!

15 Amber { 01.26.14 at 4:27 am }

So nice to have a printable schedule. As for boycotting, all those athletes work incredibly hard to get to this point. I find it sad that their Olympic dreams are tarnished, and especially to the point that they lose support to the point of being boycotted when they have nothing to do with the politics.

16 Danielle { 01.28.14 at 1:17 pm }

Thank you so much for having this schedule! I’m so excited to watch the luge events!

17 Bonnie { 02.04.14 at 5:39 pm }

Thank you so much for posting this! I love the skating, bobsled and downhill skiing. I also love the athlete’s stories.

18 Jim { 02.05.14 at 3:10 pm }

Thank You….. I am so frustrated withthe network; they want everyone to waste time on their site. Thank You again! I did a search on printable schedule and your sie came-up.

Just wanted to say that you are SO AWESOME! Thank you so much for doing this! Trying to figure out how to extract this from the official NBC site has been driving me up the wall…

20 stephanie { 02.07.14 at 11:25 am }

21 Tiffany { 02.08.14 at 9:41 pm }

Thank you for doing to work to make this easily printable! :)

22 Polly { 02.09.14 at 6:32 pm }

Sigh! You left out my favorite event…curling!

23 Felicia { 02.10.14 at 12:24 am }

Oh my goodness! You are so very awesome for doing this. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!! I, too, tried to figure out how to print a schedule easily from the nbc website but became quite exasperated at the click through, hour-by-hour nonsense.
