Olympic swimming events will be broadcast live on NBC and USA.

  • Tokyo Olympic swimming events started on July 24 and conclude July 31.
  • Swimming events will air on NBC and USA Network via live TV streaming services.
  • On the USA team, expectations are high for Katie Ledecky and Caeleb Dressel.

Table of Contents: Masthead StickyTV (small)

Swimming events at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics started on July 24 and continue daily until July 31. Live coverage will be broadcast on NBC and the USA network.

The USA team has several strong competitors in women’s and men’s divisions, but all eyes will be on Katie Ledecky when she gets in the water. Ledecky already has an impressive collection of five gold medals and one silver medal coming into the Tokyo Olympics. If she snags three more gold medals in Tokyo, Ledecky will tie swimming legend, Jenny Thompson, as the winningest female US Olympian of all time.

In the men’s division, Caeleb Dressel is expected to lead the pack after his impressive showing at the 2019 FINA World Championships. Dressel earned two gold medals during the 2016 Olympics in Rio.

During the first three days of swimming events, the USA team earned three gold medals. In an unexpected victory, 17-year-old Alaskan Lydia Jacoby took home the gold medal for her performance in the women’s 100m breaststroke. For the men’s swimming division, Americans earned a top podium spot in the 400m individual medley and the 4x100m freestyle relay.

Katie Ledecky posted the fastest qualifying times in 200m and 1500m freestyle, the Chicago Sun-Times reports. On July 27, the women’s finals for both events will air live during prime time coverage on NBC.

How to watch Olympic swimming

Live broadcasts of Olympic swimming events are split between two channels: USA and NBC. For both men’s and women’s events, you can watch the preliminary heats on USA and the finals on NBC. Swimming heats will air in the mornings starting around 6 a.m. ET, and final races will air later in the evening during primetime coverage.

If you already have access to NBC and USA through a pay-TV provider, you can also stream every swimming event live via the NBC Sports app or NBCOlympics.com.

If you don’t have cable, you can get NBC and USA through a variety of live TV streaming services. Sling TV is the cheapest subscription service for watching all the Olympic swimming events. New members can get their first month for just $10 (regularly $35). NBC is only offered in select markets, however, so be sure to check Sling’s website for availability first.

FuboTV, Hulu + Live TV, and YouTube TV are additional live streaming services with access to both channels for watching Olympic swimming, but these options are more expensive at $65/month each.

Team USA earned a spot in the women’s team final, although the Russian Olympic Committee received a higher score during the qualification event. On July 27, the women’s team final will air live at 6:45 a.m. ET on Peacock. The highly anticipated Olympic event will replay that night in primetime at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.

Sling Blue costs $35/month. New members can get their first month for $10. Sling’s news extra package costs $6/month, and the sports extra package costs $11/month. This brings the total price to $27 for new members for their first month, or $52 a month for existing members.

Access to NBC will be based on your local affiliate station and support is only available in select markets. You can check whether your local NBC network is available on Sling here.

Sling Blue comes with 50 hours of DVR space to record live TV, and up to three devices can watch at the same time with a single account. The Sling TV app is available on most streaming TV platforms, including Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Android devices, and Chromecast. You can also download the app on LG and Samsung smart TVs, and Xbox consoles. On your phone or computer you can watch Sling via Sling.com.

  • The Tokyo 2020 Olympics will feature men’s and women’s tournaments for 5-on-5 and 3-on-3 basketball.
  • Olympic basketball games will be spread across NBC, NBC Sports, USA, and CNBC.
  • The NBC sports app will stream every game, and US men’s games will also stream live on Peacock ($5/month).

Table of Contents: Masthead StickyPremium (Monthly Plan) (small)TV (small)

The Tokyo 2020 Olympics will feature professional basketball players from the top international leagues as well as the debut of 3-on-3 events, an Olympic first. Twelve nations have qualified for the traditional men’s and women’s 5-on-5 tournaments, while eight teams will play in men’s and women’s 3-on-3 events.

Players from the NBA, WNBA and other professional basketball leagues from around the world will compete in the 5-on-5 tournament. The US men’s team, a perennial favorite, is led by stars like Kevin Durant and Damian Lillard, but they’ll have to face top international talent like Rudy Gobert of France and Luka Doncic of Slovenia. The US women’s basketball team has won six consecutive Olympic gold medals dating back to 1996. This year’s squad is led by stars like Diana Taurasi, Breanna Stewart, and Brittney Griner.

The 3-on-3 basketball events will use a different format than traditional basketball, with shots being counted as one and two points, rather than two and three points. Teams win by scoring 21 points, or by leading after 10 minutes.

The 3-on-3 teams will play each other in a round-robin format to determine seeding for the medal tournament. The 5-on-5 teams are separated into three groups for match play leading to a final tournament.

Olympic basketball coverage begins with 3-on-3 events on July 23; 5-on-5 match play begins on July 24. To watch Olympic basketball you’ll need access to NBC’s family of networks. Select games will air on NBC, NBC Sports, USA, and CNBC.

If you already subscribe to a pay-TV provider with access to NBC’s channels, you can stream all Olympic basketball events through the NBC Sports app or NBCOlympics.com. This is the best way to catch all the action live, as a lot of the broadcast coverage will be shown as replays.

In addition, all US men’s basketball games will be streamed live on Peacock Premium, NBC’s standalone streaming service. Peacock Premium starts at $5 a month for ad-supported streaming.

Premium (Monthly Plan) (small)

If you’re not already subscribed to NBC channels through your cable provider, you can sign up for a live TV streaming service to follow Olympic basketball online.

Sling TV is one of the most affordable options, starting at $35 a month for Sling Blue with NBC, NBC Sports, and USA ($10 for new subscribers), and an additional $17 for CNBC and the Olympic Channel, which require extra sports and news packages. That’s $52 in total, or $27 if you’re a new Sling subscriber.

TV (small)

Other live TV options – like YouTube TV, FuboTV, and Hulu + Live TV – also include access to the necessary NBC stations but, while they all feature more channels than Sling, they’re also more expensive with prices starting at $65/month each. If you’re just signing up to watch the Tokyo Games, Sling is a more economical option.

How to watch soccer at the Tokyo Olympics – women’s group matches begin on July 21

USWNT US Women's National Team Soccer
US women’s national soccer team members Alex Morgan and Megan Rapinoe celebrate.

  • Olympic soccer will begin before the opening ceremonies with women’s group matches starting July 21.
  • Games will air on USA, NBC Sports, and the Olympic Channel via cable and live streaming services.
  • The women’s gold medal match is August 5, while the men’s gold medal will be decided on August 7.

Soccer will be one of the first sports to begin competition at the Tokyo Olympics, with women’s group stage matches starting on July 21 and the men’s matches starting on July 22. The Tokyo Opening Ceremonies will be held on July 23 and Olympic soccer competition will continue through August 7.

A total of 24 nations will compete in soccer during the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, with 16 qualifying men’s teams and 12 women’s teams. You can watch select games on USA, NBC Sports, and the Olympic Channel through cable and live streaming services.

While Olympic men’s soccer has been restricted to players 23-years-old and younger since 1992, the one-year delay of the 2020 games led to the age limit being increased to 24. Men’s teams can also name up to three senior players above the age limit to compete in the Olympics. Brazil won the men’s soccer gold medal as the host nation in 2016, led by international superstar Neymar.

Women’s teams don’t have roster restrictions, and the US women’s national soccer team, or USWNT, is bringing back most of its players from the 2019 World Cup championship squad. The Americans plan to return to gold medal form after losing in the quarter-finals of the 2016 Olympics in Brazil.

The US Men’s soccer team was eliminated from Olympic contention after a loss to Honduras in a June qualifying tournament. USWNT has won four Olympic gold medals including a 2012 victory over Japan, while the men’s team has never won a gold medal and hasn’t qualified for the Olympics since 2008.

How to watch Olympic soccer

You can watch select Olympic soccer games on NBC Sports, USA, the Olympic Channel, Telemundo, and NBC Universo. Most of the games in Tokyo will air during the early morning hours in the US. The most important Olympic soccer matches will air on USA and NBC Sports Network.

If you have an authenticated pay-TV provider with access to the required NBC stations, you can stream every Olympic soccer match via NBCOlympics.com or the NBC Sports app.

If you don’t have a cable provider, you can use a live TV streaming service like Sling TV, FuboTV, Hulu + Live TV, or YouTube TV. Sling TV is the most affordable choice to get every Olympic soccer channel. The Sling Blue plan starts at $35/month for access to NBC, NBCSN, and USA. New subscribers can get their first month for just $10. You can add the Olympic channel for an additional $11/month with the Sports Extra package.

If you can’t watch the games live, NBC will provide daily highlights and evening recaps of each day’s events. In addition to primetime coverage on NBC, you can visit NBCOlympics.com or download Peacock, NBC’s streaming service, to watch free soccer highlights and clips from other sports.

You can also stream the NBA Finals via the ESPN app, ABC.com, or the ABC app if you already pay for those channels through your TV provider.

Sling TV

Sling TV includes ESPN3 as part of its Orange plan for $35 a month. Sling doesn’t include ABC, but NBA Finals airing on that network are simulcast on ESPN3.

New Sling subscribers can get their first month for a discounted rate of just $10, which makes Sling one of the cheapest options for people who just want to stream the NBA Finals.

You can watch most of the remaining 2021 Wimbledon Championship matches on ESPN. You can access the channel via cable/satellite and various live TV streaming services, including Sling TV, Hulu + Live TV, YouTube TV, Fubo TV, and AT&T TV.

In addition to the ESPN broadcasts, select matches will also be streamed via the ESPN+ and ESPN3 streaming services. With that said, ESPN+ will not carry live coverage of the women’s singles and doubles finals, the men’s singles and doubles finals, or the mixed doubles finals on July 10 and 11. All other finals will air on ESPN+.

Here’s a full breakdown of live TV streaming services with access to Wimbledon matches on ESPN.

Sling TV

The cheapest way to stream Wimbledon matches on ESPN is through Sling TV. Sling Orange ($35/month) offers live access to ESPN as well as ESPN2 and ESPN3. While Sling Blue ($35/month) includes access to other sports on Fox and FS1 channels, it does not have access to ESPN networks.

For a limited time, you can get your first month of Sling Orange for just $10. If you keep you plan after your first month is up, the price will go up to the regular $35 monthly rate.

TV (small)

YouTube TV

You can also catch Wimbledon with YouTube TV. The live TV streaming service offers both ESPN and ESPN2 along with other sports channels including FS1, CBS Sports Network, the MLB Network, the NFL Network, and NBA TV. YouTube TV costs $55/month for your first three months, and then $65 a month after.

TV (small)

Hulu + Live TV

For $65 a month, you can get a Hulu + Live TV plan that includes Wimbledon matches via ESPN. The service also features other sports networks like CBS Sports Network and NBC Sports Network, as well as access to Hulu’s on-demand library of shows and movies. You can also bundle the live TV service with Disney Plus and ESPN+ for $73 a month.

+ Live TV (small)

FuboTV

Another option to watch Wimbledon is with Fubo TV. The Starter Plan offers around 115 channels, including ESPN and ESPN2, for $65 a month. New subscribers can get a seven-day free trial.

The streaming service’s Elite Plan ($80/month) also includes access to a number of additional sports networks including FS1, NBCSN, NFL Network, BeinSports, CBS Sports Network, and more.

TV (Starter Plan) (small)

AT&T TV

AT&T TV also carries Wimbledon on its live TV streaming service via ESPN. The cheapest plan starts at $70, however, so we don’t recommend this as the best option for people who are primarily looking for an affordable way to watch the tournament.

Table of Contents: Masthead StickyTV (medium)Free Trial for Verizon Customers (small)

Dollar for dollar, Sling TV is one of the most affordable live TV streaming services on the market, offering a large selection of channels and on-demand content.

Like most streaming platforms, Sling TV provides various promotional deals and free trial offers on a regular basis. That said, the conditions of these trials and discounts often change. Right now, new subscribers can get $25 of their first month. Or, if you’re an eligible Verizon customer, you can two months of Sling for free.

Sling offers other bonuses for new subscribers as well, including free device bundles. Here’s a full rundown of all the Sling TV offers and deals available right now.

New Sling TV members can get $25 off their first month

For a limited time, Sling is offering a $25 discount on the first month of service for new members. This brings the price down to as low as $10 for your introductory month. The promotion also includes one month of Sling’s DVR Plus upgrade, which offers 200 hours of storage.

This deal often comes and goes every few months or so. Sling hasn’t announced when the current “$25 off” deal will expire, so we recommend new subscribers snag the promo now before it’s gone.

Subscribers can choose between Sling Orange, Sling Blue, or the Sling Orange/Blue combo plan to receive the $25 discount. With the deal, your first month of Sling Orange or Blue comes out to $10, while your first month of the Sling Orange/Blue combo comes out to $25.

You must provide an email address and credit card when you sign up. After your first month, your subscription will continue under the regular monthly price unless you cancel. If you want to keep the DVR Plus upgrade you need to pay an additional $5 a month.

Verizon customers can get 2 months of Sling TV for free

Verizon is offering a limited-time promotion for Sling subscribers. New and existing Verizon customers who are new to Sling TV can get two months of Sling’s Orange or Blue plan for free.

The deal is good for Fios, wireless, and 5G Home internet customers. Existing Verizon members who activated their account before May 19 have until July 18 to redeem the offer. New and existing Verizon customers who signed up after that date can redeem the offer within 60 days of their Verizon activation. The promotion ends on February 19, 2022.

Sling’s International and Latino plans are also included in the deal. Verizon customers can choose between two free months of the International Plan or three free months of the Latino Plan.

Your subscription will automatically renew at Sling’s standard monthly price after your trial is over unless you cancel. This offer is not valid for customers in Maine or New Mexico. You can visit Verizon’s website for more information regarding this deal.

Does Sling TV offer a regular free trial?

Sling’s website does not currently include a regular free trial option, but the site has offered a three-day trial in the past.

People who sign up for Sling through the Sling TV app on select devices, however, can still receive a three-day trial. The app is available on most smart TVs and media players, including Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV, and Chromecast.

You can get a free AirTV Mini or antenna if you prepay for 2 months of Sling

If you don’t want a discounted month or the Verizon deal, new members can opt for a free device instead.

You can get a free AirTV Mini when you prepay for two months of Sling. The AirTV Mini streaming device typically costs $80 and you can use it to watch Sling and other apps on your TV. The AirTV Mini can be paired with an AirTV 2 and an antenna to add local programming.

Subscribers who just want a simple solution to get local channels can instead get a free antenna ($45 retail value) when they prepay for two months. Though an antenna by itself won’t integrate with your Sling app, it will let you watch local channels that aren’t included with Sling, like ABC and CBS, through your TV.

Sling offers discounted AirTV 2 and AirTV Anywhere bundles if you pay for 3 months

In addition to the antenna and AirTV Mini offer, Sling currently has two other packages that’ll get you discounted devices if you prepay for three months at the regular price.

For $49, you can get an AirTV 2 ($100 retail value) and an antenna ($45 retail value). If you want to record local channels with a built-in DVR, you can opt for a $99 bundle featuring an AirTV Anywhere and an antenna ($245 total retail value).
