How To Stream NBCUniversal’s Coverage of the 2016 Rio Olympic Games on Sling TV

Jul 28, 2016 by Glenn Eisen

Every four years, the world’s most elite summer athletes compete for the biggest honor of them all – an Olympic gold medal. This year is no different, as athletes from more than 200 countries meet in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to compete in more than 300 events from August 5-21. That’s a lot of action and because we know you might not be home when your favorite sport is airing, we are making it easy to watch NBCUniversal’s coverage of the Rio Olympics at home or on the go with Sling TV.

Watch NBCUniversal’s Coverage of the Rio Olympic Games with Sling Blue
Coming this August, Sling TV will carry NBCUniversal’s coverage of the Rio Olympic Games on its Sling Blue service:
• Customers who subscribe to Sling Blue’s core service will be able to watch NBCU’s live coverage of the Rio Games on Bravo, NBC (where available), NBC Sports Network and USA.
• Sling Blue customers who subscribe to the “Sports Extra” add-on pack can access 130 hours of live golf competition coverage via Golf Channel.
• Sling Blue’s “Best of Spanish TV” customers can watch extensive Spanish coverage on NBC Universo.

MSNBC and CNBC Preview
Although MSNBC and CNBC are usually only available to Sling Blue customers through “World News Extra,” beginning August 1 through the last event on these networks, all Sling Blue customers can access a free preview of MSNBC and CNBC.

Combined, MSNBC and CNBC will air more than 120 hours of coverage, ranging from men’s basketball, soccer, beach volleyball, water polo, rugby, wrestling, archery and cycling.
