You’ll be able to watch the 2022 Winter Olympics on two different channels in the UK, as well as one streaming service.

2022 Winter Olympics live stream

The Winter Olympics are being shown live on two major TV channels, as well as one streaming service, therefore there’s no sportsbook permitted to offer an actual live stream of events.

However, if you’re looking to bet live on Winter Olympics events, such as the ice hockey, you should head to bet365. While they don’t have a Winter Olympics live stream, they’ll be offering constantly changing live odds, making it the perfect place to bet while games are in-play.

When is the Winter Olympics opening ceremony?

The opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics will take place on Friday 4th February at 12:00pm GMT. It’s expected to last around 1 hour 40 minutes, but could easily overrun.

It will take place in the iconic Bird’s Nest Stadium and will be broadcast live on BBC One and Eurosport 1. Dave Ryding and Eve Muirhead will be the flagbearers for Team GB.
