Beijing 2022 curling takes place in a round robin format. Two teams of four players each take turns sliding the stones (five in mixed doubles and eight in the men’s and women’s team events) towards the target area. Teams score points for number of stones resting closest to the center at the end of each round.

This year you'll need to watch out for the Swedes with world champion Niklas Edin and the women’s Olympic champion Anna Hasselborg. Eve Muirhead skippers the British women for the fourth time, while her male counterparts have really impressed to reach their final against the hot Swedish team.

See a full list for the Winter Olympics curling dates times below and make sure you know how to watch every curling live stream at Beijing 2022, no matter where you are.


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.

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

(opens in new tab)

As ever, the BBC is providing FREE coverage of the 2022 Winter Olympics and with Team GB hopefuls in the curling, there's a good bet there will be live coverage on BBC iPlayer (opens in new tab) as they play for the medals.

However, the BBC won't have all the action of every sport. If you want to guarantee every event and every session then you'll need the Discovery+ or Eurosport Player.

Discovery+ is your best option for the most comprehensive Winter Olympics coverage, with a subscription costing £6.99 per month or £59.99 per year after a 7-day FREE trial. (Current Eurosport Player subscribers will get the same access ahead of their Discovery+ migration. There is also some TV coverage on Eurosport 1 and 2)

Not in the UK during the Winter Olympics? No worries - residents of the country can just download and install a VPN (opens in new tab) to port themselves back home to a UK location, then watch live as usual.
