Gymnastics is one of the most popular sports at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. The qualification subdivisions started on July 23 and the last gymnastics final is on August 3. Coverage will be rebroadcast during primetime on NBC, and you can stream select events live on Peacock for free.

Women compete on four apparatuses: balance beam, floor exercise, uneven bars, and vault. Men compete on six apparatuses: floor exercise, horizontal bar, parallel bars, pommel horse, rings, and vault.

So far, Team USA has earned two gold medals in women’s gymnastics events. Sunisa Lee won gold for her performance in the individual all-around, and Jade Carey earned the top podium spot during the floor exercise final.

On Monday morning, USA Gymnastics announced on Twitter that Simone Biles and Suni Lee will compete in the women’s balance beam final. You can stream the event live on August 3 at 4 a.m. ET through the Peacock streaming service. The highly anticipated Olympic event will replay that night in primetime at 9:30 p.m. and 10:45 p.m. ET on NBC.

How to watch Olympic gymnastics

Complete coverage of the 2020 Olympic gymnastics competition is available to stream live on the NBCOlympics website or NBC sports app if you have a pay-TV provider with access to NBC. Since most of the gymnastics events occur early in the morning, NBC is rebroadcasting select portions during its primetime coverage.

Outside of NBC, Peacock is streaming the gymnastics finals live for free. You can sign up for a free plan at the Peacock website.

If you’re looking to watch NBC’s primetime coverage without cable, you can use a live TV streaming service like Sling TV, FuboTV, Hulu + Live TV, or YouTube TV. Sling’s Blue plan is the most budget-friendly of the bunch at $35/month, and new customers can get their first month for only $10. That said, NBC is only available in select markets, so be sure to check Sling’s website for availability first.

How to watch free live TV and rent movies with Redbox’s online streaming apps

Redbox mobile app logo
You can watch free TV and movies with Redbox Free Live TV or rent movies with Redbox On Demand.

  • You can watch free live TV with Redbox’s Free Live TV service, and rent movies through its On Demand service. 
  • Redbox’s TV service comes with commercials, and it costs money to rent movies, but there’s no monthly fee.
  • The Redbox mobile app also has Free On Demand, which lets you watch movies for free.
  • Visit Insider’s Tech Reference library for more stories.

Known for their bright red kiosks at grocery and convenience stores, Redbox is a DVD and Blu-Ray rental service that’s become one of the biggest movie rental companies around.

Recently, they’ve branched into online streaming with Redbox Free Live TV and Redbox On Demand. 

Here’s everything you need to know about both services.

Redbox Free Live TV and Redbox On Demand, explained

Redbox Free Live TV, which launched in February 2020, lets you stream some live television shows and programs. While you might find older favorites and syndicated shows, there’s no big-name cable networks or broadcast news. It’s available on smart TVs, streaming devices, smartphones, and computers.

Viewers have their pick between dozens of shows and channels. You can watch stand-alone series like Forensic Files or Divorce Court, which run episodes at varying times. Or, you can watch specific channels, like ConTV or BNC, which switch up their content throughout the day. However, because it’s live TV, there’s no ability to pause, rewind, or fast-forward, and there are commercials. 

Redbox On Demand allows users to rent, buy, or stream movies for a few dollars per movie. This service is only available on a computer – the mobile app will only let you reserve a physical disk from a Redbox kiosk, or watch a movie that you’ve already rented.

On the Redbox mobile app, you also have the option to watch Free On Demand, which isn’t available on a web browser. Unlike Redbox On Demand, which offers blockbuster movies for a rental fee, Free On Demand offers movies for free – though the selection doesn’t include many big-name films, and commercials are included.

How to watch Redbox Free Live TV on a desktop 

1. Go to redbox.com/stream-free-live-tv on your web browser of choice.
