The Winter Olympics in Sochi are in full-swing, with hundreds of hours of content being broadcast on NBC’s family of networks. But if you’re looking for complete coverage of the Games – or want to watch content live instead of on a delay – it’s easy to do so legally online. Here’s how. If you’re watching on NBC’s website – which is NBCOlympics.com/liveextra – you’ll need to log in with your TV provider’s username and password to authenticate yourself. After that, you’re good to go! And if you’re a Comcast, Cox or Cablevision subscriber, you won’t even need to log in – watching from your home automatically authenticates you. If you don’t pay for TV – or don’t know your login – NBC offers 30 minutes of free viewing the first time you watch. You can watch the Olympics on your computer, and also on iOS and Android devices. If you’re on a mobile device, just download the free NBC Sports Live Extra app and log in. What are you waiting for? Go watch some curling!
