How to watch the Olympics as an equestrian

It’s almost the most wonderful time of every four years- Summer Olympics time! We are so excited to tune into all of the equestrian Olympic events taking place at Versailles. 

With dozens of events happening between the 27th of July and the 6th of August and time differences, it can be difficult to make sure you catch the horses and riders that you want to follow. Not to worry! We’ve put together a complete guide on how to tune into equestrian events at the Paris 2024 Olympics.

Keep in mind, you’ll need to be an early bird to catch some of these events live, but you’ll be able to catch full event replays on Peacock or on the NBC Olympics website.

What streaming platforms and cable channels are airing equestrian events?

The answer to that question lies with NBC, who owns the rights to air the Olympics. They will be covering equestrian events on both streaming and cable.


NBC’s app Peacock will host the majority of online Olympics coverage. The app is free to download and you should be able to catch live events and replays with the free plan. However, if there is a specific event you’re looking for, the app can be easier to navigate with the $5/ month Peacock premium app. You may even be able to get a two-week free trial, but you didn’t hear that from us.

Other options to stream the Games are through YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, Fubo, Sling TV, and DIRECTV STREAM.


You can watch the 2024 Olympic Games on USA, E!, CNBC, the Golf Channel, NBC, NBC Sports, and Telemundo (for Spanish-speaking coverage). You can find out what channel NBC will be in many major cities on CableTV.com.

We hope this guide will help you enjoy all of your favorite events at the Olympics this year. Be sure to check out the same channels for coverage of the unique opening ceremonies taking place in boats along the Seine River on July 26.
