On TV: none (UK); none (USA); Star Sports Select HD1 (India); SuperSport MaXimo 1, Canal+ Sport 3 (NGA); elsewhere
Streaming: none (UK); Peacock (USA); Hotstar (India); DStv Now (NGA) — back to the dark ages we go after broadcast restrictions were relaxed during COVID in the UK. Meanwhile, in the US, we’re stuck with Peacock, which remains atrocious and was practically useless during the Olympics. We do have an affiliate link if you want to sign up after that ringing endorsement, and if you aren’t getting it for free with Comcast/Xfinity.
Be excellent to each other, and party on, dudes!
