Summer Olympics are considered one of the biggest sporting events of the year. Like clockwork, these Olympics come around once in four years. Luckily, 2021 is the summer Olympics year, and the Tokyo Summer Olympics 2020 is just around the corner. So if you want to know how to watch all the Olympics goodness in all the HD glory on your Android devices, you have come to the right place. This helpful article provides you a step-by-step guide to watching the Olympics extravaganza without stepping out of your TV lounge and without spending a dime.

How to Stream the Tokyo Summer Olympics from NBC

Like the previous times, NBC has the exclusive broadcasting right for Tokyo Summer Olympics 2020. This can be a good thing or bad, depending on whether your cable provider offers NBC and its affiliate channels. If you already have an NBC subscription, then you are in luck!

You can also opt for various online Live streaming outlets such as Hulu to watch the live events. Moreover, you can get a live feed via NBC Sports’ official website. Downloading the NBC Sports app on your device is yet another method to start streaming your favorite sports.

How to Watch the NBC Sports Live Stream for Free

Here’s how you can watch NBC Sports live streams without charging you anything extra.

1. The best way is via the NBC Olympics Channel. Follow the link and wait for the player to load. In case any Olympics coverage is going on, you will see the event Live.

The only problem here is that NBC Sports only offers a limited preview of the program. You will need a cable or satellite connection to remove this limitation. Here’s how you can remove this restriction.

2. So, once your free preview expires, you can get a cable subscription, scroll down to the page and then opt for Verify Now.

3. From the list of options, select your service provider and then log into your account using their login credentials.

4. If your login credentials are correct, the limit will be lifted automatically, and you will be able to stream the entire event without any hassle.

What Streaming Services Include the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games?

Cord cutters around the world prefer streaming Olympics through a streaming device using a streaming service. A streaming service provides TV access a lot like a regular cable connection. However, the major difference is that instead of working on RF signals, your TV uses an internet connection. Therefore, instead of an antenna, you need the right combination of a laptop, computer, mobile phone, tablet, smart TV, streaming device, and a high-speed internet connection.

Usually, these streaming services have signed exclusive streaming deals with networks and TV stations. This allows them to broadcast live events like any other cable channel. So, the availability of an event depends primarily on your geographic location and the nature of the agreement between a particular streaming service and your local NBC affiliate. That’s the main reason why you can watch NBC live on some platforms while others offer NBC’s on-demand and recorded content.

Below are some popular streaming services that regularly show content from NBC.

Hulu with Live TV

Hulu Firestick app

Hulu has an exclusive Live TV package that offers various live events along with the regular Hulu programming. Of course, it costs a huge sum on a monthly basis, but the main advantage is that you can watch several NBC affiliates. Hulu with Live TV has one of the widest access to NBC programs.

YouTube TV

Unfortunately, Hulu with Live TV is only available in major markets such as UK, USA, and Europe. If you live in a small market, then your chances to watch Olympics on NBC are limited. Youtube TV is one such option. It’s available in several of the smaller markets. It comes with an equally impressive NBC coverage and is pretty affordable too.

DirecTV Now

Direct TV Now used to be quite a popular Live streaming service. It has now been rebranded and renamed into AT&T TV now. It’s a very channel-rich streaming service and offers all the major US Cable networks, including NBC. You can opt for a Plus package or the Entertainment package, depending on your use. But this service is considerably expensive than others.

Sling TV

You can also watch NBC via Sling TV. However, there is one problem. NBC on Sling TV is available only in a few markets around the world. But if your geography is covered, consider yourself pretty lucky because Sling TV is one of the most affordable streaming services mentioned in this article.

fuboTV

FuboTV Streaming IPTV

In case none of the above streaming services are working in your area, check out FuboTV. Although it’s a sports streaming service offering live coverage of all the major sporting events, NBC coverage is pretty limited. That’s why this service should be your last resort if all else fails.

Watching an Olympics Online Stream on Mobile, Streaming Devices, and Consoles

Of course, you can watch Olympics online on your mobile through a web browser. Still, official apps provide a much better streaming experience. That’s because these apps are specifically designed for streaming live events. Another advantage of using these official apps is that you can download them on your tablet, streaming device, or even a compatible gaming console.

Fortunately, NBC sports has several apps for all the major consoles, iOS, and Android streaming devices. Though you will still need a cable subscription to log in, these apps provide a very convenient way to stream your favorite sporting events.

Below are apps you can use to stream Tokyo Summer Olympics 2021 via NBC sports:

  • Android: NBC Sports
  • iOS: NBC Sports
  • Amazon devices: NBC Sports
  • Roku: NBC Sports
  • PS4: NBC Sports
  • Xbox One: NBC Sports

Can You Watch the Olympics With an Antenna?

Yes, most popular events are usually broadcast on NBC’s main channels. You can watch these with the help of an antenna absolutely free of cost. You will just need a subscription to your local NBC affiliate and an antenna. Nevertheless, sometimes  NBC shifts coverage of some sports programs to its online streams. In that case, you will most likely miss that coverage.

In case you have an older TV set, you will have to use a digital converter box besides upgrading your older antenna.

So, if you have successfully set up an antenna, another way to watch NBC live is through Plex TV. Plex Live TV is free of cost over the air TV broadcast service that provides live TV. To use plex TV, simply hook up your antenna to your PC or laptop and use Plex Live TV to stream directly on your device.  You will also need a TV tuner card for your PC to make everything work.

Can You Watch the Olympics on Free Sports Streaming Websites?

Of course, you can watch Olympics on Free Sports Streaming websites. These websites include multiple links to third-party sources that host live Olympic events. However, these websites often come with intrusive ads that can compromise your security. Likewise, these services aren’t always legal. So, using free streaming websites to watch free sports isn’t an ideal option.

Below are some websites you can use to stream free sports.

Wrap Up

Tokyo Summer Olympics 2020, the biggest sporting event of the year, is just around the corner. We hope now you’ve all the information you need to start live streaming all the tournament’s major sports events once it rolls around in July. Till then, get your hardware equipment, cable or streaming subscription, and TV sets ready. Whether you’re using a phone, PC, or streaming device, these methods will work like a charm. Besides these methods, there are other alternatives, such as using smart DNS services or sideloading third-party apps on your device. However, they are not as reliable and sometimes legally questionable as well. That’s all for now. If you think we missed some critical piece of information, let us know in the comment section below.
