This is a guide for watching the broadcasts in Australia but the same principle applies for watching television and the “app” in any Country.
First of all, you may have a Book or a newspaper item or magazine with a general Schedule of events, for example I have a magazine called “Official Australian Olympic Team Guide to the 2016 Olympic Games – what to watch in Rio” which has a very nice 2 page spread (not removable) showing coloured blocks for all days of the Olympics denoting the Events scheduled, separating out the Medal events.
However, you really need a precise guide of the exact scheduled times of the Events to make “head or tail” of watching what you really want to watch on TV or on the Channel 7 App here in Australia. I learned this the hard way.
I found that if you simply type Rio Olympics Schedule ( or Olympic Games Rio 2016 ) into Google you should get the day’s scheduled events pop up, then when you click on the arrow above “All Events” down the bottom, Google kindly shows much detailed information ( but don’t worry – you won’t see any Results ). See screenshot below.
NOTE: that Google will kindly show you the LOCAL times. Click on “Overview” to return to the screen above, if you have navigated to one of the other Pages.
If Google isn’t the “search engine” that you use, just type Google into your search field, then click on the resultant link – to go to Google. You will know you are using Google because their name appears at the top of the Search area. Make sure that the Date and Time on your mobile device or computer’s clock is correct.
