The 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio kick off tonight with the opening ceremonies. The next two weeks will include hundreds of Olympic games from the pool to the track ranging from trial to medal events. You can watch all of the action live on your iOS device with the NBC Sports app. The app includes a full schedule of every event each day, and you can tap to watch any event live. The best part is that the app not only includes the various NBC broadcasts across their various networks, but also includes feeds specifically for the app.
There is so much potential content to watch, and you have the option to watch live in local time in Rio. You do need a cable subscription to tune in, but the NBC Sports app connects with most TV providers you can think of including AT&T U-verse, Cablevision, Charter, Comcast XFINITY, Cox, DirecTV, DISH, Optimum, Time Warner Cable, Verizon FiOS TV. Beyond the live video content, you can also watch replays of events as well as specific highlights. The app includes notifications and filters to view events based on medal matches, specific sports, NBC “must see” events, or Team USA specific events. There are also alerts for the start time for specific events, for example Fencing begins at 5AM pacific, Saturday morning.
The 2016 Summer Olympics are underway, and the NBC Sports app is the best way to watch it all live on your iOS device.
