This instructional guide will show you How to Watch the Olympics 2021 on any device without cable.
The 2020/2021 Tokyo Olympics are underway and this year’s event is unlike any other.
Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, the 2020 Summer Olympics were postponed and rescheduled for a year later.
This has only happened a few other times in the event’s history usually because of war.
The 2020 Olympics will take place in Tokyo Japan from July 23 – August 8, 2021.
There are numerous ways to Watch the Olympics 2021 on any device including the Amazon Firestick, Roku, and Android TV Box.
This includes popular choices such as the NVIDIA SHIELD, MECOOL, and Chromecast with Google TV.
Although we cover Roku devices on this Website, we don't recommend them due to their closed system. We recommend the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K due to its low price and ability to easily Jailbreak it which will allow for free movies, TV shows, live channels, sports, games, and more.
The Amazon Firestick is the most popular media device available today likely due to its sideloading capabilities and price point.
2021 Olympics Coverage is available on NBC and its subsidiary platforms/applications.
This includes the NBC Sports App, Peacock, and even the home page of Firestick and Roku devices.
You can stream the 2020 Olympics on nearly any device including Android TV Boxes such as NVIDIA SHIELD, MECOOl, Chromecast with Google TV, and more.

How to Watch Olympics 2021 on Roku
Roku users can also enjoy the Tokyo Olympics directly from the home screen of their device.
This will include in-depth coverage, highlights, and more.
Similar to Firestick users, Roku owners must have a subscription to a Legal IPTV Service to stream live coverage of the 2021 Olympics.
However, the Roku 2020 Olympic Experience will be available on your Roku homepage with content available via Peacock.
Other Options for Streaming the Tokyo Olympics
Roku users and Firestick users alike can also use other methods to stream coverage of the Olympics on NBC.
The best way to do so is with an OTA Antenna that provides live local streaming options such as ABC, CBS, NBC, and more for FREE.
Doing so does not require any app installation and these antennas can be hooked directly into your home television.
If you do not have an OTA Antenna for use, you can still watch live local coverage (depending on your location) with the Locast App.
