2022 Beijing Olympics: How to Stream the Winter Games

by Madison Miller

Although it feels like we just finished watching the Summer Olympics, it’s now time to tune in for the 2022 Beijing Olympic Winter Games.

From snowboarding and figure skating to bobsleigh, hockey, and skiing, there are a lot of action-packed moments just waiting to happen.

Here’s how you can be sure you won’t miss it.

How to Watch the 2022 Beijing Olympics

For starters, you can use your Peacock subscription if you have one. NBCUniversal is behind the coverage of the Olympics and wants to pack all of the coverage into premium tiers. The goal of NBC is to get as many people as possible onto the streaming platform. It’s quite the incentive, given just how popular the Olympics usually are.

If you do have Peacock or are planning on getting it for the occasion, you can stream the content from February 2 to February 20. The live streaming will cover all 15 sports that get highlighted during the Winter Olympics. Not only that, but it will allow viewers to also catch up on events at their own speed. It will include events that are airing on NBC and NBCU’s cable networks.

According to Variety, Peacock is offering even more content to lure people in. That includes NBC’s nightly primetime show, full replays available directly after, daily studio content, medal ceremonies, highlight clips, as well as the Opening and Closing Ceremonies. Premium Plus members that pay $9.99 a month will get this all ad-free.

If you don’t have Peacock, don’t fear.

You can still tune in on cable to watch all your favorite events. NBCU has yet to announce the full TV coverage schedule, but that will eventually be available. This will be your go-to place to see which events and coverage are happening and when.

We do know, however, that the Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony will start on Friday, February 4. The competition coverage will start two days before. The very first primetime show will air on February 3. We’re only a month from the Games.

What to Look Forward to with the Winter Olympics

As always, Team USA is pulling out all the stops to get as many gold medals as possible.

That includes featuring some past top medal contenders to represent the U.S. That includes Shaun White, a three-time Olympic gold medalist in snowboarding, Chloe Kim, a 2018 gold medalist in snowboarding, Mikaela Shiffrin, a two-time medalist in Alpine skiing, Nathan Chen, a three-time world champion in figure skating, and Erin Jackson, a popular 2018 Olympian that competes in speed skating.

Another possible gold medal will come from the U.S. women’s ice hockey team. They are reigning Olympic champions and certainly gold medal contenders.

Timothy LeDuc is a figure skater and is also someone to look out for. They are the first non-binary athlete to compete in the Winter Olympics. They were the first out gay athlete to win a U.S. pairs title alongside Ashley Cain-Gribble in 2019.
