How to Stream the 2022 Winter Olympics. You’d be forgiven if you thought that the Olympics had just happened—the delayed summer Olympics, postponed from 2020 due to the pandemic, were on a mere six months ago
But now it’s wintertime in the upper half of the earth’s hemisphere, and the conditions are perfect for athletes to launch themselves off of giant ski slopes. I know there are some ice skating lovers out there, too. Where else can you watch gymnasts on ice in glittery tutus? If you want to be a part of the action, you can stream the Winter Olympics at home.
Here’s how to access the games through apps on your smartphone or TV.
The Winter Olympics started on Feb. 3 and will run through Feb. 20. They’re taking place in Beijing, China, which hosted the Summer Olympics in 2008. If you were around back then, you might recognize Beijing’s national stadium, the Birds Nest. How to Stream the 2022 Winter Olympics

Where Can I Stream the Olympics?
NBC has all the exclusive broadcasting rights to the Olympics through 2032. You’ll need to stick with its apps if you’re hoping to stream replays or live footage. There’s a handy schedule you can check to see when you should tune in, and you can even personalize it to filter out the games you don’t care for.
If you don’t pay for live TV, your best bet to watch the Olympics is to fork over $5/month for Peacock Premium. You’ll get access to the opening and closing Ceremonies, NBC’s nightly primetime recap of the games, full replays of all competitions available immediately after they’ve concluded, and even exclusive daily programming.
Peacock will provide access to four Olympics-specific shows with highlights and interviews, including the aptly titled The Olympics Show and Olympic Ice, a must-watch for ice skating fans. You can learn about the other shows over at NBC Sports. How to Stream the 2022 Winter Olympics
