2012 Olympics Opening Ceremony: Start Time, TV Schedule And More

The Opening Ceremonies at the Olympics every four years is something to behold. With more than a billion viewers expected across the globe, you can bet London will be putting on a show.

The Opening Ceremony, titled "The Isles of Wonder", is set Friday night in London. With the time change being anywhere from five to eight hours deepening on where you live in the United States, most of the action televised in primetime will be tape-delayed.

The ceremony will begin at 9 p.m. locally. That's 4 p.m. on the east coast, 1 p.m. on the west coast. NBC will begin airing everything at 7:30 p.m. EST/ 6:30 PST, so you'll have quite the wait if you're in Seattle or the surrounding areas. Check your local listings to ensure what time everything is set to begin in your area.

Seattle has many representatives at the 2012 Olympics, including Team USA soccer goalie Hope Solo, along with many more. Fans will remember basketball forward Kevin Durant spent time in Seattle before leaving for Oklahoma City.
