How To Watch The Sochi Olympics Opening Ceremony Live

The XXII Olympic Winter Games opening ceremony in Sochi starts Friday morning at 11 a.m. Eastern Time, but it won't be aired in the U.S. until more than eight hours later thanks to NBC's tape-delay policies. They aren't streaming it live online, either, so if you'd like to join the rest of the world in watching the opening ceremony as it happens, we've prepared a few options for you.

1. Download Tunnelbear, set it to the UK, and tune into BBC Two here. (Be sure to pay your TV licence.)


2. A better and more reliable option might be to use VyprVPN. That's what we use on a daily basis, and you can access BBC Two in the UK, CBC in Canada, or numerous other countries' versions of the opening ceremony broadcast. Since there's a three-day free trial, you can sign up and then cancel once the opening ceremony is over (though you might find having a fast, reliable VPN all over the world to be worth the $10 a month).

3. We don't endorse outright stealing television, but this is a pretty reliable pirate feed of BBC Two.

Add any other options below!
