You mention prelims begin at 10am Tokyo time, but it appears there is no source for live streaming of prelims (around 9pm ET) on this chart, or anywhere I’ve seen yet.


According to this, it will be live-streamed on Olympic channel


Olympic channel shows no indication of showing Prelims. Also the finals are not really live but delayed an hour or two.


Nvm read it wrong. I think the best option is going to be subscribing to a vpn for a month and using an Aussie stream. Probably what I’m gonna do.


great idea

Or Canadian CBC.ca

Is there really no mlive stream of any prelim session????


I’ve not actually found a “live” stream of the finals either. The Olympic channel seems delayed 1 or 2 hours. In the US can’t get Canada’s feed which is blocked here. I don’t know about Australia’s feed. I would think it would be live as closer to same timezone, but it might be blocked in the US.


will there be any Canadian or Australian live streams

I found Canada tv is the best when it comes to Olympics sports



I can’t find anything for Australia. Surely that can’t be right.


SAL has confirmed that they will not be providing any coverage of the meet.


Im in Australia and cant find any broadcast???


What about FINA TV?
