The XXIV Olympic Winter Games kicks off on Feb. 4, 2022 in Beijing, China. You'll be able to watch all of your favorite winter sports through Sunday, Feb. 20, including alpine skiing, figure skating, ice hockey, curling, bobsledding, snowboarding, and speed skating. There are several ways to watch coverage of the events.
Beijing is 13 hours ahead of the East Coast, so while watching some of the live events might be a challenge (unless you make a concerted effort to stay up late or wake up very early), coverage will be replayed on several streaming services.
The games will primarily air on NBC and the Peacock streaming platform. The opening ceremony has already happened, which is available on demand on Peacock.
How to watch coverage of individual sports
Peacock will offer free clips and highlights of the events, but to watch live coverage and full event replays, you'll need to pay for Peacock's streaming service. Peacock Premium is $5 a month and Peacock Premium Plus is $10 a month. You can access the full schedule of events here.
The NBC Sports app will also offer game coverage with a cable login, or you can check out NBCOlympics.com and NBCSports.com for free access. Primetime coverage starts at 8 p.m. ET Monday through Friday and at 7 p.m. ET on Sunday.
If you subscribe to a streaming platform that offers NBCU, you'll be able to use it to watch the events.
