Tokyo 2021 is still a year away, but we have been feeling the hype for months now. The upcoming 2021 Summer Olympics is officially entitled as the Games of XXXII Olympiad, also known as Tokyo 2021. It is a next international multi-sport event which will take place from July 23 to August 8, 2021, in Tokyo Japan.
Looking to watch the Tokyo 2021 Olympic Games? Whether you want to do so on your TV, via a live stream online, or on the radio, we’ve got you covered – this our ultimate guide with everything you need to know.
2021 Summer Olympics Details, location and date
As mentioned, it will happen from July 23 to August 8, 2021, in Tokyo, Japan.
Tokyo came as the host city back then during the 125th IOC Session in Buenos Aires on September 7, 2013. The games will be the mark of returning Summer Olympics to Tokyo for the first time after 1964.
It will also mark the record that Tokyo is the first city in Asia which hosts the Olympic twice. In total, there are four Olympics held in Japan.
The Seven network is the only place to watch the Olympics on TV this year. The deal for the 2021 Games is the same one which came into effect for the 2016 Games and gives Seven the exclusive rights for Australian television audiences.
Seven will broadcasting their Olympics coverage across all three of their channels – 7, 7TWO, and 7mate.
Seven is also the place to go to if you are keen on finding a live stream for any event. They are live streaming all three of their channels’ coverage live online, both through their website and through the Olympics on 7 app, available for iOS and Android.
However, that’s not all – if you’re keen to watch an event that is not being shown on one of Seven’s three channels, you do still have the ability to live stream it online or through the app.
Unlike four years ago though, you won’t need to pay for the right to watch every single event out of Japan. Instead, it’ll all be for free through a yet to be confirmed Channel Seven digital application. All you’ll need to provide is an email address and some personal details to access thousands of additional hours of content, which Seven have also said will be streamed in HD.
So how are you going to know when you need to watch? We’ve got you covered of course, with the ultimate Olympics TV Guide for Australians, to let you know what’s on TV and when, all in AEST time.
