Here's How to Watch the Tokyo 2020 Olympics Online in China

It was reported that this year’s broadcast of the opening ceremony received the lowest ratings on the American TV network NBC in the past 33 years. The program drew in 16.7 million viewers – a sharp 37% decline from the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Games. 

The pandemic, of course, can be partially held responsible for the lack of viewership. Many did not even know when the Olympics were taking place after the yearlong delay, paired with strict social distancing rules and absent athletes. This year’s games haven’t exactly been at the forefront of public consciousness.

Here’s where to catch livestreams online for free sans VPN:
