Not a great source for ease of use, but the info is here.  You'll need to know the date and time of the event and then trace it on NBC's schedule.

Good news!!

The Olympic Channel, which will be the main channel putting wrestling out there for the Olympics, is free via streaming devices like ROKU.  I think CNBC is also and they have a little wrestling.  USA I don't think so.  But Olympic Channel is covering the vast majority of Wrestling.  Woo hoo!!

I don't currently have that channel with Spectrum..  I use my wife's old computer to surf the internet and found out it needs to be updated to stream the Olympics.

Oh, well.

I tried to get on The Olympic channel last night on my Roku.   They wanted to know who the cable provider was.  Then it worked great and my wife and I watched a documentary on Rulon Gardner.   It did show, although not clearly, how he avoided Karelin's reverse lift.  He spun with his hands around and around and Karelin could not keep a hold of him.  That was the first time I had ever seen that defense when I saw it in 2000.  My wife argued with me and thought it was Karelin spinning him.  So I showed her and she could see it.  The angle was not good and it was really close in.  Anyway, his defense worked great!

I'm already disenchanted with this year's Games.  We almost lost wrestling as an Olympic sport, and they're showing skateboarding and 3x3 basketball?  What's next?  Frisbee golf and tiddly winks?

Rock Climbing is in there this year.

It's all driven by those that hold the TV contracts.

This year's opening ceremonies had the lowest ratings in 33 years.  NBC will probably blame it on COVID and not learn anything from their mistakes.

They did have a couple of hours on USA today that appealed to those of us with testosterone.  Judo, boxing, tae kwon do and weightlifting, with surfing thrown in at the end.
