There will be no shortage in coverage for the 2022 Beijing Olympics, and no shortage of ways to stream it in Canada, either.

Canadians from Graham Island, British Columbia, to Cape Spear, Newfoundland, will be able to watch and stream the Olympics, starting Friday, February 4 and concluding on Sunday, February 20. 

Olympians like figure skater Eric Radford; speed skater Ted-Jan Bloemen; bobsledder Justin Kripps; curlers John Morris and Kaitlyn Lawes; freestyle skiers Cassie Sharpe, Mikael Kingsbury, and Brady Leman; and snowboarder Sébastien Toutant will be front-and-centre throughout more than 2,400 hours of live Olympic content available in Canada.
