Olympic Time Difference between Beijing and U.S.

If you plan to watch Olympic events "live" via internet, you might be wondering, "What is the time difference between Beijing and the U.S.?" Here is the answer by time zone:

* Pacific Time Zone: Beijing is 15 hours later (i.e., 8 AM in Los Angeles = 11 PM in Beijing)

* Mountain Time Zone: Beijing is 14 hours later (i.e., 8 AM in Salt Lake City = 10 PM in Beijing)

* Central Time Zone: Beijing is 13 hours later (i.e., 8 AM in Chicago = 9 PM in Beijing)

* Eastern Time Zone: Beijing is 12 hours later (i.e., 8 AM in Boston = 8 PM in Beijing)

The Opening Ceremony will start at 8 PM on August 8, 2008 in Beijing. It will be broadcast in the U.S. about twelve hours later (depend on which time zone you are in).
