For those who enjoy consuming CrossFit as a sport, this week is the week. It's CrossFit Games week! That's right, for individual, master and team athletes alike, the fun starts tomorrow!
Whether you are a friend or a fan, here are the ways to watch:
Once the Games begin, fans can tune in to watch the entirety of the individual, team, masters and teen competitions live on the CrossFit Games website and on Facebook. In addition, CBS Sports Digital will stream up to 40 hours of live event coverage of teams and individuals on CBSSports.com and the CBS Sports app for mobile and connected TV devices (OTT). OTT devices with the CBS Sports App include Roku, Apple TV (3rd gen. and 4th gen.), Amazon Fire TV, Xbox One and Windows 10. No authentication or sign-in is required to view this stream on any device.
CrossFit will use Facebook update groups to let people know when events are live, so be sure to join and set your notifications so you don't miss the best action. Known events and times will be scheduled in advance, and the Studio team will be breaking live announcements as they happen on site. For full schedule information, download the CrossFit Games app or visit Games.CrossFit.com.
Please note the Games will take place in Central Standard Time.
New for 2017: Televised coverage will be moving to CBS and CBS Sports Network. The move will mean an unprecedented amount of coverage before, during and after the Games.
Once the Games are underway, fans can catch two hours of competition coverage on CBS Sports Network at the end of each day, Aug. 3-6, starting at 10 p.m. ET. And don’t miss the live coverage on Saturday on CBS Television at 1 p.m. ET or digitally on CBS All Access.
CBS Sports Network is widely available through all major cable, satellite and telco distributors. For distributors with national channel lineups please find CBS Sports Network as follows: DirecTV - 221, Dish Network - 158, Verizon FiOS - 94, AT&T U-Verse - 643. For all other providers, use the CBSSN channel finder to find your channel or check your local listings. CBS Sports Network is also available with OTT providers Hulu and YouTube TV, with additional distributors launching soon!
