If you want to watch Friday night’s Olympic Swimming Finals live, you’ll need to sign-up for Peacock or use your TV Everywhere credentials to unlock the NBC Sports App. You can get access to the NBC Sports App, with a subscription to a Live TV Streaming Service like Sling TV, which is available for 1-Month for just $10.

If you can remain spoiler-free and don’t mind watching on replay, swimming events will be featured throughout the day on NBC and USA Network. Several streaming services offer a free trial to watch NBC, but we recommend fuboTV so you can also get the other channels showing Olympic events.
