THE Tokyo Olympics opening ceremony has already been and gone – but primetime viewers in the US are being treated to the whole show on Friday night.
After being delayed for a year due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Olympics return to Tokyo – and to NBC – for the world to watch.
Because Tokyo is 13 hours ahead of the east coast, the Opening Ceremony begins in Japan at 8pm, which is 7am EST.
The highly anticipated Olympic Opening Ceremony will also air on Friday night beginning at 7:30pm EST.
Ironically, the Olympic’s opening ceremony took place at the Olympic Stadium in Shinjuku City, Tokyo.
The stadium was also used for the 1964 Olympic games held in Japan, but don’t worry, the stadium itself has had plenty of renovation to suit the needs of all safety measures.
