How To Watch Winter Olympics Online Free, Without CableBy Lyn Atwood / August 4, 2017 / Tags: Unblock Content, Winter Olympics
Here’s how to watch Winter Olympics online free, without cable. Enjoy the 2018 PyeongChang Olympics live stream from anywhere.
The 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea will start soon, but Americans looking to watch Winter Olympics live streams on NBC will need a cable subscription to get access. There is a workaround though. Here’s what to do so you can watch Winter Olympics online for free, without cable.
You just need a handy little tool called ExpressVPN so you can live stream the 2018 Olympics for free on channels like BBC (UK) and CBC (Canada). We’ve tried loads of other ways, but ExpressVPN is our favorite for streaming the Olympics for free, without cable because it always gives the best, fastest stream quality, unblocks both the BBC and CBC (plus channels around the world), and has super-simple apps for every device. You also can’t beat their 30-day money-back guarantee. (So you can live stream the Winter Olympics, then get a refund to stream the entire PyeongChang Games for free!)
How To Watch Winter Olympics Online On BBC And CBC — Free, No Cable Needed
You have two great alternatives to NBC to watch Winter Olympics online: the BBC in the UK and CBC in Canada. These channels are both free, but US viewers are geographically restricted from accessing the live streams. So you’ll need to bypass the geo-blocks to watch the PyeongChang Olympics live stream.
There are a few different ways to unblock regionally-restricted content on the channels that will stream the Olympics. We’ll show you the easiest and most reliable way here: by using ExpressVPN. This is what we used to watch the Rio Olympics online and it never once disappointed.
Here’s another huge plus to using ExpressVPN: They have a 100%, no fine print, money-back guarantee. That means — should you decide you don’t like it after the Olympics are over and get a refund– well, then you just got to live stream Winter Olympics for free.
Here’s how to set it up (takes about 5 minutes).
STEP 1) Get a 30-day money-back ExpressVPN account For the lowest price, and to get 3 months extra free, choose the 12-month plan ($8.32/mo).
STEP 2) Download the ExpressVPN app
Download the app for the device you want to use. You can download multiple apps and can use ExpressVPN simultaneously on up to 3 different devices. Their apps are super easy to use, and are available for every device: smartphone, tablet, computer, router, media streamer, gaming console, or smart TV. Pretty much, if you have it, ExpressVPN will work on it.
STEP 3) Get connected and start watching the Winter Olympics online for free
Now open the app and connect to an ExpressVPN server. If you want to watch the Olympics on the BBC, then connect to a U.K. server (we’ve had the best performance with the East London location). If you want to watch CBC, connect to a server in Canada.
Once you’re connected, ExpressVPN will take care of everything. Just visit the BBC and CBC online as you normally do, only now you’ll be able to access their live streams. You can also use their apps — for example, if you want to watch Winter Olympics online on Roku. Or you can use a device like Chromecast to play the live streams on your TV.
Some VPNs we’ve tried have slowed down our connection, but ExpressVPN has always delivered super-fast streaming speeds without a glitch or interruption. You’ll also find you now have access to a whole slew of other geo-blocked content on sites and services (tons of new stuff on Netflix!), so do explore. It’s pretty cool.
Even if you have cable, for a world event like this it’s fun to watch coverage from other countries. And the BBC and CBC’s coverage tends to be broader than NBC’s. Enjoy the Winter Games!
