You Can Stream Every 2020 Tokyo Olympics Event For $10, And Peacock Isn’t Required
After the opening weekend of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, people were confused about Peacock. Many thought that it was the way to stream the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, but it wasn’t. Yes, there is some live Olympic coverage of Gymnastics, Track & Field, and Men’s Basketball, but the vast majority isn’t there.
The real way to stream every single event of the 2020 Tokyo Games is with the NBC Sports App or NBCOlympics website. Not only will you be able to watch everything live, but you can also access everything on-demand nearly immediately (unlike the next day on Peacock).
But, unlike Peacock where most of the coverage doesn’t require you to pay for anything, this requires TV Everywhere credentials – meaning you will need a cable, satellite, or streaming subscription.
Fortunately, there is a way to get access for just $10, and that’s through Sling TV. For a limited time, Sling TV is offering just $10 for an entire month. On top of being able to watch and DVR, NBC (in select markets), NBCSN, USA Network, and Olympic Channel from the Sling TV interface – you’ll also be able to unlock the NBC Sports App.
And while Peacock Premium includes Team USA Men's Basketball for $4.99 a month, you can also access those games from the NBC Sports App using your Sling TV credentials. So effectively, for $5 more you will get everything Olympic event instead of just Basketball.
You can download the NBC Sports App on all major streaming platforms including Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV, Android TV, iOS, and Android. Once you do that, you can use your streaming or cable credentials to log in to the app and unlock free streaming.
