Jason Gurwin

If you have an iOS device, including iPhone or iPad, it is easy to stream the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, even if you don’t have a cable subscription. In addition to making it easy to launch your favorite events from the Apple TV App on your mobile device, you can just as easily stream live events using a streaming service on your iPhone or iPad.

If you’re looking to stream the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, one of the easiest ways to stream it without cable is with a Live TV Streaming Service on your iPhone for as little as $10.

If you are looking for a low cost option to stream the Olympics Games in the U.S., you can get nearly all the Olympic Coverage you need from Sling TV. With Sling TV, you can stream NBC (in select markets), NBCSN, USA Network, and Olympic Channel for just $10 for an entire month.

But, what Olympic Events will you be able to watch on your iPhone or iPad?

What Olympic Events Can You Watch on iPhone?

Subscribing to a Live TV Streaming Service is the best option for fans that want to watch all Olympic action including the Tokyo Olympics Opening Ceremony on your iPhone or iPad. With these services you’ll be able to stream CNBC, Golf Channel, NBC, NBC Sports Network, Olympic Channel, and USA Network depending on your plan.

Sling TV is the least expensive option. With their Sling Blue plan, you can get your first month for just $10, which includes NBC (in select markets), NBCSN, and USA Network. You can add-on their Extra Packs to get CNBC, Olympic Channel, or Golf Channel.

You will be able to get Olympic Coverage inside of Sling TV, but you can also use your TV Everywhere credentials on the NBC Sports App on iPhone or iPad. With that, you will be able to access nearly every Olympic Event from your streaming player, mobile device, tablet, or computer – including those not available on TV.

fuboTV and Hulu Live TV both include all of those channels as part of their base plan ($64.99), after a 7-Day Free Trial. You can also stream those with a subscription to YouTube TV.

Hulu Live TV offers all of the major channels that will air the Olympics - NBC, NBC Sports Network, USA Network, CNBC, Olympic Channel, and Golf Channel. All of these channels are available as part of their $64.99 a month base plan, which is available with a 7-Day Free Trial.
