On August 5th the opening ceremony for the Rio Olympics will be held. This is how you can watch the Summer Olympics opening ceremony online.
It is a fact that the opening ceremony will be arranged on August 5th, but it is not true for everyone. If you live in the United Kingdom and plan on watching the opening ceremony live online on BBC then you will soon notice that the actual broadcast of the event will start at 00.00 on August 6th. It will last until 02.00, so if you plan on watching the entire event you will go to bed late that night. That ain’t a big problem, but considering the fact that there will be loads of similar late night highlights throughout the Summer Olympics, we might see lots of tired European faces during the time between August 5th and August 21st. But, we guess you want to watch the Summer Olympics opening ceremony online, and this is how you can do so!
