Looking to watch the 2014 Olympics on your phone or tablet? NBC is catering to fans who want to see the Olympics, but haven’t made the trip to Sochi. While it sounds difficult, the idea of getting access to any of the sporting events is as easy as a click of a mouse. According to USA Today on Tuesday, NBC has the exclusive U.S. rights to the Olympic access which includes live streaming video, highlight clips, archiving and video on demand.

What makes the Sochi Olympics viewing different than the Winter Olympics in Vancouver or the London Olympics? This year all 15 venues will be available on live stream for fans to watch on NBC. This is far different than previous years when the viewing was limited and the change has fans excited.

So how can Olympic fans get access to NBC? Well, before the Winter Games begin, it’s a good idea to sign in to the digital portal on or download the NBC Sports Live Extra app. The app can be used on iOS, Android and Windows phones for the fan’s convenience. After verifying your ID as a cable, satellite or telecom customer access will be granted and the sporting events can be seen right in your own home.

Be ready to watch plenty of live action just about anywhere you want to go! NBC has every Olympic fan on the go covered!
