A handful of TV channels and streaming options run by NBCUniversal plan on showing a staggering 6,755 hours of programming for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, which kick off with the opening ceremonies on Friday, August 5, and end on Sunday, August 21.

Without a traditional pay TV package, though, you could miss out on most of the action. Here are some options for maximizing the number of events you can watch online and on regular old TV, while minimizing how much you have to spend. In many cases, you don’t have to cough up a single penny. And you absolutely won’t have to sign up for a cable TV subscription.
