Although shooting events will probably not be a major part of the television broadcasts, there are still ways to watch Team USA shooters compete this summer at the Olympics. For the duration of the Tokyo Games, the NBC Olympics website will be streaming the majority of the shooting event finals and qualifying events.

In order to watch the Tokyo Olympics online, you will have to supply your TV provider info to secure free access. And if you happen to subscribe to Peacock, the NBC streaming platform, live Olympic coverage, along with daily highlights and replays will be broadcast on that service as well.

With the large time difference (13 hours for the U.S. East Coast and Tokyo), shooting events taking place during the day in Japan will be streamed stateside late in the evening.

Most of the events will be streamed between around 10:00 p.m. EDT and 3:00 a.m. EDT each night. Don't want to stay up late?
