The 2016 Summer Olympics officially begin Friday with the opening ceremony.
First things first: This is how to watch.
NBC will broadcast the show from Rio at 7:30 p.m.
Look for Team USA’s entrance with Michael Phelps carrying the flag and the entire team sporting preppy Ralph Lauren ensembles fit for the tropics.
Unlike London’s extravagant spectacle of dancing and theatrics, the Rio show’s budget is significantly less, but organizers promise an “original” Olympic opening ceremony
