Peacock Premium provides the easiest way to watch the 2022 Winter Olympics. The streaming service costs $5 a month and will stream every event live. Replays will also be available to subscribers.
Those without Peacock Premium can still watch free highlights, select coverage, and clips from the Winter Games on Peacocktv.com or via the Peacock app. Peacock is available on iOS and Android devices, Roku, Amazon Fire, Xbox, web browsers, and select smart TVs.
NBC, USA, and the Olympics channel will also broadcast the Winter Olympics on TV, including primetime re-airs of popular events that happen at odd hours for US viewers. If you have access to these channels through your TV provider, you can also log in with your account information at NBCOlympics.com to watch live events and highlights.
Sling TV, Hulu + Live TV, YouTube TV, and Fubo TV all offer packages that include NBC, USA, and the Olympics Channel. These services all start at $35 to $65 a month, though, so we recommend going with Peacock Premium for the most affordable way to stream the Olympics.
