How to Watch X Games 2021 Live For Free on Apple TV, Roku, Fire TV, and Mobile

Jeff Kotuby

The X Games are back and headed to where it all started.

California is synonymous with action sports, whether you’re talking skateboarding, BMX, or motocross, and more. It makes sense that, after a year like we’ve had, that the X Games would go back to their roots and hold the 2021 contest in SoCal. The action gets underway July 14-18 on the ESPN app, ESPN, ESPN2, and ABC.

2021 X Games Background

The X Games return to southern California after the 2020 games, intended to be held in Minneapolis, were cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This year’s event will not be open to the public, but fans can still interact with their favorite action sports athletes via “Virtual X Fest,” a virtual fan experience hosted by the X Games.

Fans will have the opportunity to customize their own avatar, explore the boardwalk filled with virtual experiences, watch live X Games competitions, and best of all win valuable prizes. Experiences inside the virtual X Fest will include a custom X Games shop, interactive skate and BMX course, and an all-new ‘Story Mode’ where fans will have a chance to complete a mission to get the X Games medals to the stage on time! Go to XGames.com/XFest to pre-register and enter for the chance to win an X Games skate deck signed by X Games athletes.
