How To Stream The Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics From Australia

The Winter Olympics kicks off in Sochi, Russia in 12 hours, and Ten is the exclusive Australian coverage partner for the Games. If you want to watch the games on anything but your TV, we’ve got the guide for you.

As mentioned, Ten is the exclusive broadcaster for the Sochi games, so you’re going to be looking at using the TenPlay app across various platforms, or the specific Sochi Winter Olympics App.

Here’s what it is, and how to get it across different platforms.

The App

The app will carry eight simultaneous live streams from the Sochi games, and give you the ability to replay live streams so you don’t miss any of the action.

The app also introduces a huge amount of data on the athletes inside the app, including statistics, medal tally and athlete information.

Ten will produce highlight packages for the app every day if you’re not a fan of dedicated live streams.

You’ll be able to stream the Games over either 3G/4G networks, as well as Wi-Fi. The app isn’t unmetered, however, so watch those data limits as you stream.

Android and iOS Tablets

You can download the Sochi app right now on your iOS device, or your Android device.

Xbox 360 and Xbox One

A version of the Ten Sochi app will be deployed on Xbox One and Xbox 360. It’s not a live stream, but you will get access to catch up, highlights and Ten News reports. Roy & HGs Olympics show Russian Revolution will also be available on the console app.

Sony Bravia

Bravia TVs will get a version of the app for highlights-only. You can get it here.


Ten’s catch-up service, TenPlay, will carry Olympics coverage, but only in catch-up. You can get it for Windows 8 or iOS.
