NBC is the official home of the 2024 Paris Olympics on TV, and the network will have hours of live coverage each night this summer. That means if you want to watch Simone Biles present a jaw-dropping floor routine or see who takes home the gold for track and field events, you’ll need to tune into your local NBC affiliate channel.

In addition to letting you watch the Paris 2024 Olympics live, NBC is home to some of TV’s most popular entertainment and news programming, including Saturday Night Live, The Today Show, The Kelly Clarkson Show and The Voice. The easiest way to watch NBC at home would be through cable or a digital antenna (like this one from Amazon), but for cord cutters, there are some live TV streamers that’ll let you watch NBC without having to drop hundreds of dollars on a cable package.
