The 2019 FINA World Championships kick off today, expanded to a whopping seven disciplines over 17 days. Here’s how you can follow all of it:

FINAtv Live Stream

FINA will be live streaming the entire event on its own streaming platform, FINAtv. Coverage here does require a fee, though.

BBC Streams & Highlights

The British Broadcasting Company will be streaming some sessions live and providing highlights of other sessions through a mix of their television, online streaming and radio platforms. They have a schedule published to their website, mostly based around the major events for British athletes.

CBC Streams

The Canadian Broadcasting Company will also be live streaming some events. It’s unclear whether pool swimming will be in that mix when it begins, but the CBC already has links for open water swimming, diving and artistic swimming (formerly known as synchronized swimming).

NBC/The Olympic Channel

Anyone got a livestream that isn’t finaTV and would work in the UK? Can’t really find a specific bbc schedule and I don’t have any eurosport (not even sure if they’re doing it)

See i thought that, but I was praying I was just missing something, I guess not. How abt any livestream from any other country, that would work in the UK?

I do have access to the Olympic Channel via the App. Is it worth it to still get the FinaTV app? What do you guys think? Will they be showing the Prelims live via the Olympic Channel?

You Tube TV carries the Olympic Channel and I have already set mine to DVR it.

Site refused both credit cards for no reason. You’ve made it way too hard to watch

I paid $35 being in Australia, however i’m loving it. Get to see what i want when i want. Plus when the swimming comes on i can watch all the heats too. If it was televised in Australia we would only see snippets of what the tv station wanted to show it’s audiance. So far been watching opening ceremony and open water swimming and the diving…happy days here. Big thumbs up here for me 🙂
