After nearly a delay, the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing are finally about to begin. If you can’t wait to see epic figure skating, triple corks, or intense ice hockey, you can catch all the excitement on NBC Universal channels.

This year, the 2022 Winter Olympics will be broadcast on several NBC Universal properties, including NBC, USA, CNBC, the Peacock streaming appand NBCOlympics.com, to round out the nearly 109 different events. Plus, NBC will host hours and hours of coverage, meaning you can probably attend some of the most popular events.

Since all the events take place in Beijing and Zhangjiakou, fans will be happy to hear that you can stream this year’s Olympics live and on-demand thanks to the Peacock app. Obviously, the easiest way to watch the games is via cable TV, but if that’s not an option, here are the other ways to stream the Olympics.

When will the 2022 Winter Olympics start?

The 2022 Winter Olympics will officially begin at the opening ceremony on February 4, 2022 at 6:30 a.m. ET. Primetime coverage will begin on NBC and Peacock on February 3, and the event will run through February 20, when the closing ceremony will take place.

In all, approximately 4,500 hours of sports content will be broadcast between NBC, NBCSN, Peacock and through NBC Universal’s other networks. Basically, you have a lot of different events that you can tune into and enjoy. Again, it’s easiest with a cable subscription, but if you cut the cord and want to stream it, you can.

You can access this content through: NBCOlympics.comthe NBC Sports App, or mobile apps for the US and others. Keep in mind, though, that most services require a cable TV signup, so those cutting the cord will want to look for other options. Fans can stream most Olympic events, including the opening ceremony, live on peacockwith a premium subscription.

If you want to watch or stream the Olympics online, there are several live TV streaming services to choose from. Keep in mind that these streaming services have different channel lineups, but they all offer some access to NBC, NBC Sports, USA and more.

If you’ve already subscribed to any of these internet TV streaming services, you’re all set. Each offers several, if not all, of the channels NBC will broadcast the 2022 Winter Olympics. And all these services are available on phones, tablets, laptops and smart TV platforms for easy streaming.

Keep in mind that while YouTube TV does have NBC, it lost several NBC Universal sports streaming channels late last year as NBC integrated it all into the Peacock streaming service.

Your best option for streaming the 2022 Olympics is with Peacock. That’s because a regular Peacock subscription (4.99 per month) gives you access to all the fun livestream. Plus, a Peacock Premium subscription delivers more than 2,800 hours of NBC coverage, including on-demand access to watch every event after it ends, which is a big plus. Peacock costs $4.99 per month with ads or $9.99 per month without ads.

For what it’s worth, with a Peacock subscription you can watch the Super Bowl too.

Can you stream the Olympics for free?

YouTube TV, Sling TV, Hulu + Live TV, fuboTV

We keep getting asked how to stream the Olympics for free, and the short answer is, we can’t. Well, you can use an antenna to maybe get free access to the NBC channel from your home, but that’s not ideal. So if you want to be able to “stream” the Olympics on any device you own, you’ll need to use one of the streaming services mentioned above.

Apart from watching certain parts of the game on NBCOlympics.comit is best to sign up for a free trial of an online TV streaming service. YouTube TV, Hulu + Live TVand fuboTV they all offer a 7-day free trial. This won’t get you through the entire event, but you will be able to enjoy it the most. Sling TV has either a 3 or 7 day trial, depending on the package you choose, along with a special Olympic channel.

In addition, if you use Spectrum as your ISP or Cox cablethey both offer a free subscription to Peacock, so check that out. And if you don’t have either, Peacock also offers a 7-day trial.

Once you’re all set, you can sit back and enjoy the games.
