The 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi are just around the corner.
And with the Games taking place nine hours ahead of the East Coast, we at USA TODAY Sports want to give you a heads up: we will be bringing you all the Olympics news in real time. No delays here.
We will be posting stories, sending breaking news alerts, tweeting and posting to Facebook with all the latest news on Team USA and the Olympic Games -- as it happens in Sochi.
Then, when the Games are airing on television here in the U.S., we'll still be here with you, following every medal and every segment of NBC's coverage and bringing you the best of everything.
If you are viewing us on a mobile device, are signed up for breaking news alerts and don't want to be spoiled before it's aired on TV, here are steps you can take to avoid our alerts from Feb. 7-23.
iPad users wanting to avoid spoilers can set quiet times during the Olympics and alerts will not be delivered to the device. They can open the app itself to get the latest stories about the games.
Android users can also set quiet time for alerts in the app Settings, which will silence alerts and they will not appear on the home screen. Android users can still open their Notification drawer to read the alerts when they would like to get updates.
iPhone users can edit the alert style in the Notification Center menu of the phone's settings. Once in the Notification Center, select the USA TODAY app, then choose "Alert Style" > None and toggle off "Show on Lock Screen". Users won't see alerts on their home screen, but they can check them out in the pull down notification drawer to catch up during the day.
As always, we thank you for reading USA TODAY Sports and look forward to celebrating the 2014 Olympics with you at olympics.usatoday.com.
