Winter Olympics Streaming in Switzerland

So, we are coming for Honeymoon to Austria & Switzerland. In US, we can watch the Olympics on NBC but as you move outside US you can have that luck because it only work within US.

So, any local streaming for the Swiss people?

TIA

It will be on regular TV. Probably at overdose levels.

Although you really want to use your honeymoon for that?

Re: Winter Olympics Streaming in Switzerland

Most national TV channels will be covering it I expect. If not, just find Eurosport in the channel listings. They'll have it. Of course, you're unlikely to get it in English and it may not cover the sports you want to see. Each country tends to focus on what their own sports people are good at.

Most hotels now offer a more comprehensive set of English channels (BBC 1, 2 and BBC World, as well as CNN and Eurosport in English), so depending on where they're honeymooning, I'd say there's a fair chance they can keep up to date with the Olympics (bedroom or otherwise... )

Not in the hotel we stay in in Calais. Nothing but foreign language stuff except for BBC World and that is SO boring it's unwatchable most of the time.

In Switzerland yes but not in Austria. Most countries have laws against rebroadcast of copyright material....thankfully Switzerland is on the civilised side of that debate!

Re: Winter Olympics Streaming in Switzerland

Unlike the states you'll get to see other (non American) participants in the Olympics.

Oh. My. God. Are you kidding me that you do not know that the International Olympics Committee is headquartered in, wait for it . . . LAUSANNE FREAKING SWITZERLAND?

So, yeah, I think that we watch a bit of the Olympics here. It's not called "streaming". It is just called "television" but, whatever, dude. Of course you can watch it! It will be on all day and night! It will be in French or German but you will get the hang of it, I'm sure.

Re: Winter Olympics Streaming in Switzerland

I can think of many better things to do on a honeymoon, but all to their own I guess?

If you really want to hear the commentary in English from your usual broadcaster, then I'd suggest using a VPN. Tunnel Bear is my favourite but both Opera and AVG also have an excellent product. I think they all have trial versions.

Re: Winter Olympics Streaming in Switzerland

Switzerland will get their first medal of the games today. Will be either gold or silver as they play Canada in the final of the mixed curling event.

Silver for Switzerland and Christie crashes out in the 500m speed skating - no medals yet for GB.

Re: Winter Olympics Streaming in Switzerland

Close match between Switzerland and GB in the men's curling opening rounds. Tied 5-5 and had to play an extra end to decide the winner.
