Vancouver Winter Olympics took in about $1B US in TV revenue.

According to a quick web-search, London games took in about $3B US in TV revenues (includes $2B for US market, $700M for Europe market).

I can't see how Sochi can get $6B in total revenue since the TV-rights is always one of the biggest revenue sources for any Olympic games.
