Watching the Small State Games Online

Q: Is it possible to watch the Small State Games, which are happening these days in Iceland, online?

Thank you.

Glòria, Andorra


A: RÚV will be broadcasting live men’s and women’s beach volleyball tonight, and men’s and women’s basketball tomorrow.

However, it appears that they will only be broadcasting those events and those games that Iceland is participating in, and I’m not entirely sure whether it’s possible to watch the live broadcasts outside of Iceland. Such restrictions can however be bypassed by using apps like Google Chrome’s Hola Better Internet (although while we believe this is not illegal, it is a sort of gray area and therefore not “official” Iceland Review advice!)
