How to Watch PyeongChang Winter Olympics 2018 Live Streaming Online

Category: Sports

Every four years, top athletes from around the world gather in one place to compete out in the cold in order to win the Olympic Winter Games. Nearly a century ago, during the first Olympics held in 1924 in Chamonix, France, no one could ever imagine how huge the event will be and how many people around the globe will be able to watch it live.

Obviously, all major streaming channels from around the world will broadcast the event live online. This article will tell you how to watch the Winter Olympics 2018 in all areas in the world. You will be able to stream the event live on your PC and Mac computer, iOS and Android device, PS4, Xbox, Apple TV, Roku, Amazon FireStick, or Chromecast.

PyeongChang 2018 streaming services

Here you can find a list of official Winter Olympics broadcasting channels. We support most of those services and there may be more of them in time but those are, for sure, official broadcasters of the games:

  • BBC iPlayer (UK)
  • Rai TV (Italy)
  • Channel 7 (Australia)
  • CBC (Canada)
  • ARD (Germany)
  • ZDF (Germany)
  • DR TV (Denmark)
  • France TV (France)
  • RTVE (Spain)
  • Star Sports (India)
  • TV 2 (Norway)
  • NBC Sports (USA)
  • BeIN Sports (Middle East)
  • Sky Sports (New Zealand)

What is the easiest way to watch Winter Olympics stream live online?

Most of the users are familiar with the English language so, for example, the BBC iPlayer seems to be a very good choice considering the highest standards of the BBC journalism (not only in covering sports events). Additionally, iPlayer apps are available for numerous devices so you will be able to watch the coverage on PS3, PS4 and Xbox game consoles, Apple TV, Roku, Android and iOS devices, as well as various models of Smart TVs.

How to bypass geographical restrictions?

As you are probably well aware, many services, including BBC iPlayer, are geo-restricted. However, thanks to our VPN, you will be able to connect directly to a UK server (or any other server which we support if you decide to use another streaming service to watch Winter Olympics live online) and enjoy live broadcast of the games without worrying about geo-fencing problems. The course of action is quite simple:

  • Subscribe (if you haven’t done so yet) to Smart DNS Proxy or log into your account if you already have one
  • Activate a VPN service
  • Connect to a UK server (if you decide to use a UK-based service), or to any other server supported by us located in the country of your choice in order to obtain an IP address located in this country. Our VPN servers are scattered across the globe so you will have plenty of them to choose from.
  • Bear in mind that, except for bypassing geographical restrictions, VPN solution adds an additional layer of online security by encrypting all your Internet traffic.
  • Install a VPN application on the device of your choice (PC, Mac, iOS or Android device)
  • Enjoy uninterrupted and secured broadcast of your favorite events.

Smart DNS or VPN?

We supply both solutions and both can be used to effectively bypass geographical restrictions imposed by most of the streaming channels. The difference that an average user may spot in the speed. Due to the fact that a VPN tunnel connection is associated with heavy encryption of all your traffic, VPNs may be considerably slower. However, if privacy is also of your prime concerns, there is no safer solution than a VPN.

Another issue which is worth mentioning is the fact that using a VPN solution requires certain installation and configuration actions which are necessary for setting up the service to stream content from blocked sites. Not everyone is familiar with all those details or may simply not want to bother with them. In such a case, smart DNS is a better solution as it does not require any software installation or configuration activities.

Regardless of what your preferences are, Smart DNS Proxy will supply you with the best solution tailored for your needs. Both our smart DNS and VPN servers are located in multiple locations. Also, both services may be used with numerous Internet capable devices such as PCs, laptops, mobile devices, smart TVs, game consoles or digital home entertainment systems.
