For unlimited access, you’ll have to sign in with a valid cable, satellite, or Telco TV account. You can also sign up for a seven-day trial of Sling TV, which lets you watch NBC Sports live. It should be noted, though, that this trial period covers less than half the time that the Winter Olympics runs for.

The first event (curling) takes place on February 8th at 4:05 AM PST/7: 05 AM PST. The opening ceremony begins the day after events officially begin, and will take place at 8 PM local time (6 AM EST/3AM PST).

If you are outside of the US you will need to get a US IP address with a VPN.

Canadian sources

Canadian viewers can watch live coverage for free on CBC TV. However, a premium account ($4.99 per month) is required to watch selected on-demand titles. There’s no word yet on whether the Winter Olympics coverage will be included but if it’s not, there’s no obligation to continue paying after the first month.

If you are outside of Canada you will need to change your IP address with a Canadian VPN.
