For the first time ever, US military members will be able to watch the Olympics live on their desktops and personal devices, free of charge. Comcast NBCUniversal, in partnership with the Army & Air Force Exchange Service, is offering free streaming of the Olympics in Rio to those who serve in the US military, including retirees and family members. Using the steps outlined below, Exchange members can access free live streaming from anywhere in the United States or on an established US Military base for the duration of the Olympic Games, August 5-21.
In a statement from the Exchange, Carol Eggert, Brigadier General (Retired), and Vice President of Military and Veteran Affairs at Comcast said, “Few events unify the world like the Olympic Games, and it is only fitting that we make them accessible for those who chose to serve our country … We think it is extremely important to support our employees who are veterans or members of the National Guard and Reserve and the military community as a whole. We are thankful to the Army & Air Force Exchange Service for working with us to deliver the excitement of the Olympics to the military community, no matter where they are located.”
This offer is valid for members of all branches of the US military. For a day-by-day list of events to watch, visit NBCOlympics.com.
