No TV? No Cable? Watch 2016 Olympics Online

In iReview by Michael Allen1 Comment

Are you missing out the all the excitement and action surrounding the Rio 2016 Olympic games because you’re not a cable or NBC subscriber? If you’re TV-free like me, the good news is you can still watch the live coverage of Olympics in HD from the CBC website. All you need is to obtain a Canadian IP address – and here’s how.

The easiest and cheapest way to get a Canadian IP address is by purchasing a low-cost VPN account. There are a bunch of reputable companies offering VPN accounts for as low as $5 per month. TorGuard and HideMyAss VPN are two of the best known. They provide a ‘local’ IP address to bypass regional restrictions, allowing access to blocked online content, like the Olympics. I use HideMyAss VPN, which has the largest pool of available IP addresses and within seconds, I am logged on to the CBC site where I can access all the content, free! If you are thinking of getting a VPN account, take a look at the “Summer Olympic Special” HideMyAss is offering right now.

If you know of any better ways of watching the Olympics online, please share it here!
