You might not think that an event postponed for a full year could sneak up on you, but it feels like many of us are only beginning to realize that The Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games are less than two weeks away. This year’s Olympics will take place between July 23 and August 8 across the networks of NBCUniversal, which means that if you’re a Sling Blue (or Orange + Blue) subscriber, you’ll be able to stream thousands of hours of Olympics coverage.
How To Watch
If you’re a Sling Blue subscriber, you can watch every event across all of the following networks:
Olympic Channel: Home of Team USA*
*Available through authentication via the NBC Sports app and on nbcolympics.com
Additionally, if you live in the following markets, Olympics coverage on your local NBC affiliate is included with your Sling Blue subscription:
Los Angeles (KNBC)
San Diego (KNSD)
San Francisco (KNTV)
New York (WNBC)
Washington D.C. (WRC)
How To Authenticate
There are two ways the Sling Blue subscribers can authenticate their credentials to watch The Olympics. If you’re planning on watching on a mobile device, Smart TV, or with Roku or an Amazon Fire stick, simply download the NBC Sports app, choose sign in from the menu options, select “SLING” as your provider, and sign in using your Sling email address and password. If you’re watching on a web browser, visit nbcolympics.com, select the event you’d like to watch, and follow the prompts to sign in with your Sling credentials. You can also sign in by visiting NBCSports.com.
Remember, even if you don’t get your local NBC affiliate with your Sling Blue subscription, you can still get comprehensive Olympics coverage by signing into NBC Sports with your credentials on their app or online. We may have a couple more weeks before the medals are handed out, but it’s not too soon to start feeling like a winner.
