Just like the World Cup, the Olympics is a major global collective of sporting events and country-to-country competitions. It comes once every four years, and this time round it’s rolling out in sunny Brazil. Of course, you can catch any of your favorite Olympics sport or athlete on TV, but this is improbable. Your favorite game might go down when you’re at work or at some other important place where TVs are not common. If you find yourself pressed to see what’s currently happening, you only need to live stream on your Smartphone.

Olympic YouTube Channel

Simply click on this link to navigate to the Olympics YouTube Channel. This is the official YouTube channel for this year’s Rio Olympics games. You get to watch video highlights, interviews and other top moments that are uploaded on a progressive basis. This is a must follow if you do not want to miss out on anything newsworthy going on at Rio.

NBC Sports

If you’re in the US, NBC is the sole authorized broadcaster for the 2016 Rio Olympics games. You’ll be able to watch every event live streaming through the NBC android app, which is available on the Play Store. However, you’ll need to enter your login credentials with cable providers in order for it to work.

BBC iPlayer

The BBC iPlayer app is a great way to watch the Olympics games online right from your Android Smartphone or tablet. You can get the free app from the Play Store. More so, BBC iPlayer also works from a web browser on a laptop or PC, so you really have a number of options. The only drawback with this method is that you need to use iPlayer from inside the UK. However, if you’re outside the United Kingdom, you can use a VPN to bypass this restriction.

Navigate to a VPN service such as Nord VPN and ‘browse from the UK’ to be able to watch everything going on at Rio in real time. Better yet, the BBC has compiled a day to day guide to all major events, so you can check out beforehand to set some time apart before the event starts. In addition to the Olympics games, the BBC iPlayer application also delivers a plethora of on-demand highlights and programs that you’re certain to enjoy. You’ll likely find a good use for it long after the Olympics.

If you happen to be away from the television when some fascinating sport is ongoing, you can stream the action right to your Android Smartphone or tablet using any of the three solutions mentioned above. If you have been using any other service to accomplish the same, though, let us know so we can top up this list.
