We’ve gathered everything you need to know to stream the Olympic Games, whether you’re planning to tune in with Peacock, watch with a cable subscription, find highlights through a streaming service, or hope to find it bundled in with your live cord-cutting solution.
How to watch the opening ceremony of the winter olympics
The opening ceremony will be broadcast live beginning at 6:30 a.m. ET / 3:30 a.m. PT on Friday, February 4th. (Beijing is 13 hours ahead of the East Coast, and the event is set to begin at 8 p.m. as per local time.) The whole event will be broadcast live on NBC and Peacock.
If you miss it, the opening ceremony will be available on-demand on Peacock, NBCOlympics.com, and the NBC Sports app, though you will need a cable login to access it.
Where can I see individual sports coverage?
Clips and highlights will be available in Peacock’s free tier. For a more in-depth look at the games, including full-event replays and live coverage, you’ll need to pay for one of Peacock’s paid tiers: Peacock Premium ($5 per month) or Peacock Premium Plus ($10 per month).
Viewers will also be able to watch the games on the NBC Sports App, as well as on NBCOlympics.com and NBCSports.com. According to NBC Sports, primetime coverage on NBC will begin at 8 p.m. ET Monday through Friday and 7 p.m. ET on Sunday.
Youtube TV: NBCU channels covering the Games, such as USA, CNBC, and NBC, are available on YouTube TV. The service usually costs $65 per month, but it occasionally runs promotions that reduce that cost for a limited time.
Hulu with Live TV subscribers will be able to watch the games both live and on-demand on NBCU channels. Hulu with Live TV costs $70 per month ($76 per month without ads), but it also includes ESPN Plus and Disney Plus.
Fubo TV: Through its partnership with NBCU, FuboTV will provide live and on-demand coverage of the Games. FuboTV is currently available for $65 per month.
Sling TV has two basic plans, first is Orange and the other is Blue (each costs $35 per month). Those with a Sling Blue plan will be able to find coverage of the games in the USA.
