Report Some More Olympic Tv Updates in Beijing 2008 Summer Games Posted August 3, 2008 I've got a question. I was under the impression that the Olympics Opening Ceremony would air on NBC at 8/7c. However, I saw an ad tonight saying 7:30/6:30c. I check NBC.com, NBCOlympics.com, & TV Guide.com. All said 8/7c. Has NBC decided to change it at the last minute? Yeah, I saw that too. I'm not sure what the deal is. And the local 30-minute special that precedes the primetime show was advertised as starting 7 PM. I'm not completely sure that they haven't changed their schedule in the past. Looking back at the Athens schedule, it says each weeknight broadcast was scheduled to start at 8 PM, but I could've sworn there were nights when they went on the air at 7:30. I guess we'll see soon enough.
