How to watch the 2020 Kentucky Derby online in the US exclusively on NBC and NBCSN

NBC once again has exclusive rights to broadcast the Kentucky Derby in the US, and will cover all the build-up and undercard.

You’ll be able to stream the event, either through the NBC Sports website, or using one of the network’s apps – available for iOS, Android, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, and Android TV devices, as well as the Xbox and select Samsung and Vizio smart TVs.

Those without cable will likely have found that NBC isn’t available on many popular cord-cutting options – but it is as part of the Hulu + Live TV package. This costs $54.99 a month and represents a complete cable replacement – and there’s a FREE 1-week trial that will let you see if it’s right for you and allow you to watch the race without paying a penny.

You can also catch all the action via Sling TV in many areas. It’s more affordable than many of the others, but may not offer quite as extensive of a channel collection.
