The Scottish quartet of Bruce Mouat, Grant Hardie, Bobby Lammie and Hammy McMillan have ensured Team GB won't leave Beijing empty handed by reaching the Men’s Curling Final - but can they go all the way against Sweden and bring home the gold?

Read on to find out how to watch the Men’s Curling Final online and get a Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics live stream, no matter where you are in the world this weekend.

Beijing 2022 Men’s Curling Final

Date: Saturday, February 19

Start time: 2.50pm CST (local) / 6.50am GMT / 7.50am CET / 1.50am ET

Venue: Beijing National Aquatic Centre, Beijing, China

Live stream: BBC iPlayer (UK) | Peacock TV (US)| CBC (CA) | 7Plus (AUS) | Sky Sport (NZ)

Team GB should feel pretty confident coming into this one, having narrowly clinched a 7-6 victory over their opposition in the round-robin stage.

A win would ensure the first British men’s curling gold in 98 years, with that triumph coming at Chamonix 1924.

Whereas the Swedes will be hoping to go one better than their painful defeat in the gold medal match in Pyeongchang four years ago at the hands of the USA.

Curling live stream: how to watch Beijing 2022 online in the UK

BBC is providing FREE coverage live coverage of the Men's Curling Final on BBC iPlayer

As ever, the BBC is providing FREE coverage of the 2022 Winter Olympics with live coverage of the Men's Curling Final on BBC iPlayer  - it will be an early start though, with play set to begin just before 7am GMT.

Or, if you're watching on TV, BBC Two has the coverage on Saturday morning.

While the terrestrial broadcaster is set to show this match live in its entirety, the BBC won't have all the action of every event at this year's Winter Olympics. If you want to guarantee every event and every session then you'll need the Discovery+ or Eurosport Player.

Watch a curling live stream with a VPN

There are so many events going on at the Winter Olympics that not every country's TV and streaming coverage shows every discipline. If you can't get the curling where you are, then you can use a VPN to tune into a live stream from another country – something you might need to do if travelling abroad.

By downloading and installing a VPN, you can effectively trick your computer into thinking that it's back at home in the same country as the streaming service that you're trying to access. That way you can enjoy your home coverage without having to find an illegal stream - assuming you comply with the broadcaster's fine print, of course.
