Can You Rewatch The Rio Opening Ceremony? For Those Of You Without DVR, Listen Up
Whether you missed the 2016 Rio Olympics Opening Ceremony or if you just loved it so much you wanted to relive it, you might want to know whether or not you can rewatch the Rio Opening Ceremony. If you are, listen up: All hope is not lost! If you DVRed the broadcast in a network like NBC, of course, it's easy to rewatch — all you have to do is pull it up on your DVR and hit play! If you didn't DVR it, or you don't have one, then it might be slightly more difficult — but not impossible.
I know it might be more difficult to tune in at 1:35 a.m. EST than to tune in at 7:30 p.m. EST, if you are a bit of a night owl, that's a definite option: NBC will be reairing the ceremony starting then, during the early morning hours of Saturday, Aug. 6, between 1:35 p.m. EST and 5:00 p.m. EST. However, if you like you sleep, there are still other options: You can stream it from NBCOlympics.com, where it will be available after it finishes airing on NBC Aug. 5 (along with the other Olympic trials that air on NBC).
Thankfully, in the internet age, if you miss a legendary live event such as this one, there are still many ways to watch up.
