Summer is here, and it's time to get ready to watch the 2016 Rio Olympic Games in all their glory. If you can’t make it to Rio for the real deal, the next best thing to being there is to enjoy your favorite sport or event at home. What better time to upgrade your system? After all, the Summer Games only happen every four years. Here is your guide to make it feel as if you were there, and to getting all the excitement of the Summer Games, wherever you happen to be in the world.
Get it on TV
Before you can watch the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, you need to know how and where to get your content. NBC will be broadcasting the games yet again, on both the NBC and NBC Universal family of networks. TV coverage will start on Friday, August 5 with the always entertaining and visually stunning Opening Ceremony. After that, primetime coverage will be running until August 21. (For updated details and channel listings, visit NBCOlympics.com as the event gets closer).
Get it via live streaming
The Olympics will also be streamed live on NBCOlympics.com and NBC Sports Live Extra app, available for your tablet or smart phone. You can check the live streaming schedule at nbcolympics.com/live-stream-schedule
Get it in top quality
More than a billion people will end up watching at least some of the Olympic games at home. In order to fully appreciate them, you need a great home theater or media room set-up. Again, this is a perfect time to upgrade your system. There’s nothing quite like enjoying the Olympics on a big, high-definition TV with a killer sound system. For the best viewing experience, we recommend you scrub up your system. For example, check your cables, wires and settings to make sure you are getting true high-definition. Go bigger if your set it small and consider getting a 4K UltraHD TV an don’t settle for the audio your TV set provides, either. At the very least, amplify it with an external soundbar or invest in a nice surround sound system. Finally, we recommend a really good TV (or projector) calibration so you can make sure your settings are optimized for the best possible image quality.
