Well folks, the Tokyo Summer Olympics officially kick off this week, and CBC is going to stream a ton of the games for free! If you’re itching to see the best athletes in the world compete for their home country, then this is a great place to start. Here’s what to know.
CBC actually has three different ways to watch the games. Coverage will be available via the CBC Gem app, as well as a dedicated app for the Olympics themselves. But, the easiest way to catch it on your computer is via the CBC Tokyo 2020 website.
Did you know Team Canada is running its own 50/50 draw in support of Canadian athletes?

But, regardless of which route you choose, you’ll be able to see over 3500 hours of coverage over the next few weeks. And, while the games don’t officially start until this Friday, ‘pre-Olympic’ coverage actually begins tonight! So, if you’re in the mood to watch early-morning women’s softball, your chance is coming up!
For more information and to check out the schedule, head over to the CBC Tokyo 2020 website. Enjoy the games this year, folks.
