So you are looking for how to watch the 2018 Olympics without cable? You can only do that by watching it online — and that’s what this post will show you how to do. The 2018 Olympics starts February 9 and runs through the 25.
The host is South Korea, and all the events will take place at the PyeongChang Olympic Stadium.
Below is how to watch the 2018 Olympics online, without having to pay for any satellite TV subscription.
Watch Olympics Online: How to Watch the 2018 Olympics without Cable
For People living in the United States
If you live in the United States, watching the Olympics games online is very easy. NBC has planned to broadcast the game live on its official Olympics website, just as it did for the Sochi Winter Olympics in Russia. So to watch the 2018 Olympics without cable, proceed to NBC Olympics website.
Aside from viewing the games directly from the official NBC Olympics website, you can also watch the games through the NBC apps for different devices. Use the links to download for different devices: Android, iOS, Windows, Roku, Chromecast, Xbox, Amazon Fire TV.
When NBC broadcasted the last Winter Olympics online, it was free, without requiring any registration or previous subscription.
However, nobody knows, NBC might want to introduce registration or subscription before streaming the games this year. So, in case NBC does introduce registration or subscription, then you can watch the 2018 Olympics without cable by using online stream services that have NBC Sports as part of their channels.
For People Living Outside the United States
If you don’t live in the United States, you would be having an issue watching the 2018 Olympics online through the NBC Olympics website. This is because NBC itself and most of the online streaming services geo-restricted their contents to the United States.
This means if your Internet IP address isn’t that of US, the video wouldn’t play; you would get a notification that the video isn’t available in your country.
This kind of error can be likened to the “Video Not Available In Your Country” YouTube error, which I had already written on how to fix. So to watch the 2018 Olympics without cable outside the US – through online – you will need to apply some of the fixes I talked about in the post.
The fix in the post that has proven to unblock NBC Olympics channel outside of the US is the one that involves using a strong VPN. A strong VPN that can change your IP to that of the US will help you stream the video. So you should download and install one.
At the same time, instead of downloading VPN, you can also use the VPN feature in Opera browser or install the Hola VPN extension for Chrome and Firefox browser.
In as much as your internet IP address has been changed to that of the US, you should be able to watch the 2018 Olympics without cable, by streaming it online.
