Gymnastics fans can Yurchenko double pike for joy: The Tokyo Olympic Games finally have landed.

The first Artistic Gymnastics event — Men's Qualifying — begins mere hours after Opening Ceremony on Friday, July 23. Then the women — starring G.O.A.T. Simone Biles, her Texas training mate Jordan Chiles, and the rest of top-ranked Team USA who stole North Texas hearts at the National Championships last month — start their quest for gold.

Thanks to modern technology, watching each and every Olympic Gymnastics event from Tokyo is both easy (so many options!) and complicated (that 14-hour time difference!) — but entirely possible. 

Whether you're a digital streamer or a traditional TV watcher, know this first: NBC owns coverage. NBC and its affiliate channels and sites, such as NBCSN and Peacock, alone are broadcasting the Games.

  • You can stream competitions live and watch replays via Peacock, NBCOlympics.com, and NBC Sports on the web or by downloading the apps to your SmartTV or digital device. (Most Tokyo Olympics programming will be free.)
  • You can also tune in to Olympic channels on Sling TV, YouTube TV, and access coverage with a Hulu + Live TV subscription.
  • Locally, all Gymnastics TV coverage will air on NBC 5.

Below is the daily schedule of Men’s and Women’s Artistic Gymnastics events, when to stream them live, and when to watch later as part of NBC's TV broadcast. All times are CDT.
