2021 Summer Olympics Kodi Geo-Blocking
Note that some of the addons and channels listed below are geo-blocked outside of a specific region. If you want to protect your connection and appear as if you are from another region, consider signing up for a VPN using the information below.
2021 Summer Olympics Kodi Addon Types
Kodi streams generally fall into 3 different categories:
Official addons, geo-blocked
These addons provide official and legitimate streams to channels with Olympics Kodi streams, replays, and content. They are broadcasted on the internet straight from the TV network and anyone with access will enjoy HD and buffer-free streaming. Geo-blocked streams are restricted to a specific area, often the country that the channel is broadcasted from.
If you live outside of this area, you’ll need a VPN to access and you should look at the information above. This is okay because geo-blocking also limits the number of users who can access the stream, which means less chance of buffering as the stream gets overloaded.
Official addons, public
These addons, like the ones above, are also channels broadcasted on the internet from the official stations. Unlike geo-blocked addons, public ones are available to anyone on the internet. Be aware, the more users who stream from these addons, the more chance the server can be bogged down which will introduce buffering to the end user.
Unofficial Kodi Addons
Unofficial Kodi addons are search engines to the public internet. They pull back any stream they search for and find on the internet, present Olympics Kodi streams for all. These llinks will be either direct stream links or acestream links.
Direct stream links can be overloaded when lots of users are connected, which can lead to buffering even on the best of connections. Acestream links distribute bandwidth amongst all watchers to eliminate this buffer. However, acestream links also expose your connection to others, so the use of a VPN is recommended.
2021 Summer Olympics Kodi Streams
The following addons have 2021 Summer Olympics Kodi streams:
Official Kodi Addons
NBC Sports Live Extra
Provides official NBC Sports Kodi streams, allowing you to watch the entire Olympics. This addon is geo-blocked to the United States, so you’ll need that VPN if you live outside of it. You’ll also need a valid TV provider login, which we can’t help you with but one of your “family members” might be able to.
The CBC Olympics Kodi addon offers live streams, replays, highlights, and all of the Olympic action you need. CBC is Canada’s official Olympic coverage channel, so it is geo-blocked to Canada. Enable your VPN and connect to a server in Canada before you access the addon.
Requires a subscription in order to access, but Sling TV will have uninterrupted coverage of the entire Summer Olympics.
Unofficial Kodi Addons
The following unofficial Kodi addons may have Olympics Kodi streams:
Hopefully that’s enough information to get your started finding quality Olympics Kodi streams.
