How Can I Watch 2021 Olympics Live Stream For Free?

If you’re not in a country where 2021 Olympics live stream is made available, you’ll be blocked from accessing the live stream due to broadcasting rights despite having an account with the TV providers.

Don’t worry, you can use a free Smart DNS service to bypass these restrictions. All you need to do is just;

  1. Register for a free Smart DNS account.
  2. Configure your device to use Smart DNS.
  3. Watch 2021 Olympics live stream.

Complicated? NO! Follow the easy guide below.

Smart DNS Proxy Setup

Step 1: Register for a free Smart DNS service.

Step 2: Set up Smart DNS service on your device as per the instructions at the link(s) below:

Watch 2021 Olympics Live Stream

Once you configured your device to use Smart DNS service, access 2021 Olympics live stream via any of the link(s) below.

Note: Some channels require you to register for a free account with them to provide a personalised experience on their sites.

Also, If you have a paid account with any of the listed TV coverage providers, you can also use them to access the matches from abroad.

Do I Need To Register To Access BBC?

BBC requires all users to register for a free account before you can watch their programmes. During the registration process, you are free to use any UK based postcode, for example, E17 3AA.

Is Smart DNS Proxy Safe?

Absolutely! Most of the region-restricted websites have an initial location check, so a Smart DNS service route this request to their servers so you can bypass them.

This is a great service for Streaming as they only route the Internet traffic for the TV sites they support. Any other Internet traffic goes directly onto the Internet without Smart DNS service automatically.

Is Smart DNS Proxy Free?

You can use their service for 14 days for Free! They will not ask for your payment details and therefore, you will not be charged.

On the 14th day, you can either take a subscription with them or just don’t take any action. The free trial account will be automatically cancelled.

Personally, I would highly recommend their service because they support over 600+ TV channels and you can access it from anywhere in the world.

As low as $4 per month, their subscription is really cheap and it’s a good bargain.

This is also a great service for those who want to cancel their expensive cable TV subscription and look for a cheaper alternative.
