How to activate NBC Sports on Apple TV, Smart TV, Roku, Fire TV

The NBC Sports channel combines several sports channels into one location. That means you can get channels like NBC Sports Gold, The Olympic Channel, NBC Golf, and more.

All these channels feature live streaming events, replays, and highlights from different sports and leagues across the globe.

But to watch them, you will have to subscribe to the service using a participating pay-tv provider. You will then have to visit to activate your device.
