2016 saw Team USA get bounced in the semifinals, in a crushing defeat to Serbia. What's different about this year? Well, this moment sees RobinsThing is, experts said the same thing in 2016. But then the U.S. only took bronze, after falling to Serbia in the semifinals. And right now, Robinson's team is undefeated in group play, and looking stronger than ever.
That's because they toppled China — the reigning champs — in straight sets: 29-27, 25-22, 25-21. That said, this happened to China in Rio in 2016, and they came back to take the gold then.

And find your streaming/cable login, because NBCOlympics.com (opens in new tab) — the only place to watch this match live — requires one. NBCSN will have the 9 p.m. ET rebroadcast.
Of course, the nightly coverage on Peacock (opens in new tab) will likely include updates as well.
USA and NBCSN are part of the $35 per month Sling TV (opens in new tab) Blue package, and Olympics-watchers will want the Blue package, which also has NBC. The Olympic Channel is also available as a $11 per month add-on.
Sling is one of the best streaming services alongside our other recommendation for Olympics viewing: Fubo TV (opens in new tab), which has 100-plus channels (many more than Sling), including all of the above networks.
In addition to the Olympics live streams, Peacock (opens in new tab) also has huge library of licensed content drawn from various brands. That includes shows like 30 Rock, The Voice, Battlestar Galactica, Law & Order: SVU and This Is Us.

To watch every event live, you'll want to subscribe to Discovery Plus, which is offering coverage of every event at Tokyo 2020; all of the Olympics volleyball games (including Team USA vs. Turkey) will likely be on the service.
Discovery is currently offering a three-day free trial (opens in new tab) of the service, with full subscriptions available for £6.99/month or £29.99/year after that.

The BBC iPlayer (opens in new tab) has been the go-to source for all Olympics coverage for those in the U.K., but things have changed.
The BBC won't have the monopoly on Olympics coverage in the U.K., with the IOC having sold the main European rights to the Discovery network. As a result, the BBC's coverage, though still good, is limited to no more than two live events at one time.
Americans abroad could just use the service of their choice, provided they log in via a VPN such as ExpressVPN (opens in new tab).
