December 12, 2022
Having started on February 4th, the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics are well underway. With 109 different events now featured, there is no shortage of content that you can tune in and watch. But if you’ve recently canceled your cable service, or are considering doing so soon, you might be wondering how to access all that the 2022 Winter Olympics has to offer. But don’t worry—it’s a lot easier than you think. Here’s how you can watch this year’s games without cable TV.
Watching the Beijing Olympics on a Streaming Device
If you have a streaming device like a Roku or Fire TV, there a couple of different ways to watch the 2022 Winter Olympics. If you don’t have a live TV streaming service with the right channels or aren’t sure which service to use, no problem!
Because the games will be aired on NBC, you’ll be able to find every sport and live event on their streaming service, Peacock, which can be used with a streaming device or with your computer. If you have Peacock, you’ll find see a hub for the Olympic Winter Games where you can find live streams and coverage for particular events.
Peacock has a lot of free content, but if you want full access to Winter Olympics events, you’ll need a subscription—which is quite affordable. A premium subscription for Peacock is $4.99 per month, as is month-to-month without contracts. This means you can open an account for Peacock and deactivate it once the Olympics are over, leaving you a total payment of approximately $5 for eighteen days of content.
If you have live streaming TV services and want to know if you can watch it on yours, the following services carry all the channels you need to stream the winter games: DIRECTV STREAM, fuboTV, Hulu with Live TV, Sling TV, and YouTube TV. All of these services are month-to-month, and some of them have free seven-day trials—making this year’s Olympics the perfect opportunity to try different services out for free.
All of these services work on Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV, Google Chromecast, the latest Xbox and PlayStation consoles, and Smart TVs.
Watching the Olympics with a TV Antenna
An antenna is a great way to watch all of NBC’s Olympic coverage for free. And we’re not talking about the rabbit ear antennas. There are some great over the air (OTA) antennas you can use to get all the content you want without a plan or subscription in HD! All you have to do is plug it into your TV’s coax port and scan, and you can access NBC’s coverage of the 2022 Olympics. If you don’t have an OTA antenna yet, we recommend looking into them.
