The Tokyo Olympics were delayed for a year due to the pandemic, but to all the sports enthusiasts’ delight, they’re finally here — they’re still officially called the Tokyo Olympics 2020, though.
In less than two weeks, the biggest sporting event in history will begin — where athletes from more than 200 countries will compete with each other in 33 different sporting events to make their country proud.
The Olympics torch would have reached the hosting country by now i.e. Japan (the Tokyo Olympics location for this year) as the event is just around the corner. If you have not yet prepared for streaming the Tokyo summer Olympics 2021, follow this guide to learn how to watch the Japan Tokyo Olympics 2021 live online from anywhere.
Summer Olympics 2021 Host & Venue
The 2021 Summer Olympics will be hosted by Japan in Tokyo, which is why the event’s name itself is Tokyo Olympics 2021. Initially, the event was scheduled for the year 2020, but since there was a pandemic situation and the whole world was on lockdown, the event was postponed for a year.
Tokyo’s National Stadium will be the venue for the Olympics and both opening and closing ceremonies will be held in that stadium. Also, the Athletics events (track and field) and Women’s football events will be held in the National Stadium of Tokyo.
The Tokyo Japan Olympics will kick off on July 23, 2021, and will conclude on August 8, 2021. More than 11,000 athletes are expected to participate in this year’s Olympics.
How to Stream Tokyo Olympics 2021 Live From Anywhere
There is no doubt that the Olympics is the biggest sporting event in history and, since the athletes participating in this mega event are coming from all over the world, the whole world will be looking forward to watching it live. Even if the biggest collection of the events will be available on linear TV, online streamers suffer.
One of the best options for online streamers is to go to the official Olympics website and watch the games live; you can also download its app for mobile and FireStick.
Other than this, the OTT platforms having Tokyo Olympics live stream are not available all over the world, as many of them are geo-restricted. Nevertheless, you can beat that barrier if you have a VPN because it can help you access any streaming service from anywhere.
The following streaming platforms are featuring the Tokyo Olympics live stream in 2021:
|US-Based Platforms||Non US-Based Platforms|
|NBC Olympics Channel|
|The Golf Channel|
However, even if you are based in the US but are traveling or staying outside of it for any reason, you won’t be able to access the US-based platforms that you’re subscribed to, owing to geo-restrictions.
So, in any case, a reliable VPN is your best friend.
