How to Watch the Olympics Without Cable

Jul 28, 2016 | Streaming Devices, TV Shows

I had read a few articles a month or so ago that hinted at Olympic coverage not being available to cord cutters which I thought was a dumb move for NBC considering the many that have gone away from cable. Well, looks like we have options after all which was a huge relief to us. Our family is a big fan of the Olympics and love to take in as much as we can. So, here is a quick guide to how to watch the Olympics without cable using the new NBC Olympics App.

I threw together a quick “how to watch the Olympics without cable” video (below) that shows how to install the NBC Olympics App on an Amazon Fire TV using a subscription to PlayStation Vue. We have Vue’s Core Slim package for $34.99/month which will give us access to the Golf channel to watch the Olympic golf. But, if you’re not interested in golf, the Access Slim package for $29.99/month will give you everything else.

Remember, if you’re not a PlayStation Vue subscriber you can either do this with a free trial or sign up for one month and then cancel. There are no contracts with Vue so you can cancel anytime. Great option for the Olympics for cord cutters.
