The subscription-free Olympic Channel launched after the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio. Since then, the channel has been providing fans with stories about Olympic sports and athletes. The service is currently available on Apple TV, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV, and now Roku.

On Roku, the channel will be loaded with content including a 24/7 live stream, documentaries, memorable clips from past Olympic events, and original series.

“The launch of the Olympic Channel on the Roku platform provides fans and viewers with even more options to discover, engage and share in the power of sport and the excitement of the Olympic Games all year round as we look ahead toward Tokyo 2020,” said Mark Parkman, General Manager of the IOC’s global Olympic Channel.

The Olympic Channel is free to download, and all video on demand content is free to watch. In the US, Olympic Channel: Home of Team USA, found on the Live TV tab, requires authentication to access.
