I live outside Sweden but would like to watch the Winter Olympics on Swedish TV online. Is that possible? How can it be done?


The Winter Olympics 2018 is arranged in Pyeongchang in South Korea in February 2019. Fans of winter sports have been waiting for this event since the Winter Games in Sochi in 2014, but finally, the waiting time is over. The Swedish team is hopefully ready, but what can you do if you want to watch the live broadcasts from the Winter Olympics on Swedish TV online outside Sweden?

If you try to watch the live streams in Sweden, you will have no trouble doing so. Discovery Networks Sweden has the broadcasting rights in Sweden, and the will broadcast the event on their own channels (Kanal 5, Eurosport, Kanal 9). They also have an online platform where you can stream all the events from the Winter Olympics live. But, if you try to stream the event abroad, you will get an error message saying that the broadcast is only available to people in Sweden. What can you do about this?
