How to watch the PyeongChang Olympics online in Korea
Luckily, even if you don't have a TV it is super easy to watch the Olympics live on your computer (or on mobile). Naver will be broadcasting the Games for free on the sport section of their website.
While the site is in Korean, it is pretty easy to navigate. In fact, this link has the complete schedule of all the events with the times they will be shown. The event currently being broadcast is the one with the red 중계 button at the right-hand side.

You can also watch videos from previous events if there is a blue 영상 button in the same location.
When you choose to watch an event, you will have to download the Naver player plug-in. There is an English option for this and the setup was simple. The live stream started playing straight after the download finished. We used Google Chrome although presumably, this will also work on Internet Explorer.
