Historic wins and record-breaking feats may be in store at the Paris Summer Olympics. Here's everything you need to know about how to watch the 2024 Summer Olympics, including the best livestream options, and the streaming schedule.

When are the 2024 Summer Olympic Games?

The Paris Summer Olympics are scheduled to take place from Friday, July 26, 2024 through Sunday, August 11, 2024. While the Opening Ceremonies commence on Friday, July 26, there are football, rugby, archery and handball events ahead of what many consider the "official start" of the Olympic games.

How to Watch the 2024 Summer Olympics Without Cable

NBC is the official home of the Olympics this year and the station will air at least nine hours of coverage daily. The Opening Ceremony and every event of the 2024 Summer Olympics will stream live on Peacock along with daily highlights in the evening.

Watch on Peacock

In addition to the 2024 Paris Olympics, Peacock gives you access to more live sporting events, plus news, exclusive shows, hit movies and more. But, potentially best of all, Peacock has extras for the Olympics including two to three episodes weekly starring Kenan Thompson and Kevin Hart where the comedians will give their commentary on the sporting events of that week. SNL alumni Leslie Jones will be Chief Super Fan for NBC Universal, but it's unclear what that entails — whatever it is, we know we will be laughing non-stop.

Along with Peacock, viewers can also watch the Olympics events aired on cable with any live television streaming service that has NBC in its lineup. This includes FuboTV, Sling TV and Hulu + Live TV. Since these options essentially replace a cable package, they are more expensive than Peacock.
