How to watch the Team USA vs France from anywhere in the world
The Olympics is a global event and can be viewed in almost every country on Earth. However, if you're not in your home country and can't watch the Team USA vs France live streams with your usual services — or you want to watch in your native language — you're not out of luck.

3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to your website or streaming service of choice and tune in.
