The 2016 Rio Olympic Games are about to kick off, and anyone looking to keep up to date with the sporting event has a few options to choose from; in fact, it’s pretty easy to stream the Olympics to your iOS device, provided you have the right apps installed.
Engadget has a great breakdown of all the options on the table. And there are plenty of options to choose from. For iOS device owners, however, it’s easier to figure out exactly where your Rio Olympics subscription fund should be spent. NBCUniversal is planning on streaming 4,500 hours of Olympics programming, the website explains, and the NBC Sports application will allow iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV owners to watch the Games on their device of choice. This is definitely the option we’d recommend, based on what’s on the table.
However, there are options for cord-cutters, too, namely in the form of Sling TV. The Sling TV Blue package, which retails for $25 per month, is offering access to NBCUniversal’s NBC Sports Network, USA Network, and Bravo. Sling TV also has applications for iOS and tvOS, making it a great option for all your Olympics-based viewing.
Rio’s Opening Ceremony is scheduled for this Friday, so be sure to establish your chosen viewing method by then. We hope you enjoy the Games!
