The 2014 Sochi winter Olympics have already started from Thursday and TV networks are giving a round the clock coverage to these games, but it is also possible to stream these sochi games events to your smartphones, PCs and tablets.
NBC TV is offering a variety of platforms for streaming the games with the exception of the opening ceremony. If you are interested in just watching highlights, then you can log on to nbcolympics.com. Latest updated news, videos and other information related to Sochi games are also being posted on the official Facebook page of NBC.
In addition to above, NBC has also launched two special apps for Sochi games for streaming of games. One app is NBC Sports Live Extra which will be streaming more than 1,000 hours of action to both tablets and smartphones. You can download this app for both Android and iPhone.
The second app from NBC is NBC Olympic Highlights which will be delivering highlights, scores and breaking news from Sochi Games. This app is available for download only on Android.
There is one catch for both these apps. You will need to have a cable subscription to use these.
BBC will also stream 650 hours of free Sochi Olympics action. The Canadian CBC will also have 12 live streams from the event on its website. However in order to use these apps you need to have a VPN which could trick the servers into thinking that you are either in UK or Canada. You can buy a VPN cheaply from any of best VPN service providers listed here.
