One of the biggest signs of the severity of the pandemic that we are experiencing in 2020 – and we continue to live in 2021 although many insist on not seeing it – was the postponement of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games, something that had not happened since World War II . But a year later, when it already seems that the light at the end of the tunnel is true, we are on the verge of the start of a new Olympics.
Living in the time in which we live, many people who want to see something of the Olympics will do so from platforms other than classic TV, either because they are not at home, because they are on vacation, or because they are in bed with their mobile. And just in time for Tokyo 2020, RTVE has changed its A la Carta application for live broadcasts.
Under the new name of RTVE Play we have la new platform for video on demand and direct from RTVE. If you were already an A la carte user, it will not be necessary to download the new app, since either youyou will end the new application in the next few days instead of the previous one thanks to an automatic update, you will receive it a notice to update the app and enjoy the new version
In the event that you still do not have RTVE Play installed, do it from here:
What can you see?
You will be able to enjoy series, films, documentaries, news, sports, the best of the TVE archive and new exclusive content, in a catalog that will grow with original content and licensed series and documentaries.

How and when to watch the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games
If you want to follow the competitions in real time, in RTVE Play you will have 5 simultaneous live signals to choose which sport to watch at each moment and enjoy the full competitions -but not all sports disciplines, since this content is exclusive to Eurosport in Spain.

Search for your favorite discipline or the latest. If you’ve missed something, you can keep seeing it where you left off whenever you want to resume it, just like on Netflix or HBO.
