Watch the 2017 Kentucky Derby With a VPN
This year marks the 143rd consecutive Kentucky Derby, running every year since 1875. The prize purse totals $2 million, with nearly three-quarters of that amount going to the winner.
When the starting gates open at the 2017 Kentucky Derby, make sure you’re watching the action live and not missing a single hoof beat.
A VPN is the best way to catch all the action.
How to watch the Kentucky Derby on your smartphone, laptop, or tablet
NBC has exclusive rights to air the Run for the Roses. They even have the rights in other countries through partner networks like Sky in the UK.
So to watch it online, you’ll need to head to the NBC Sports Live Extra website or download the identically named app. You may be asked to input your TV provider, username, and password — the same info you need to log in and pay a cable bill online.
The app is available on iOS and Android, as well as on some set-top boxes like Apple TV and Roku.
The terms of service for NBC Sports Live Extra stipulate you are only allowed to use one copy of the software at a time per subscription, which means simultaneous online streaming on multiple devices may not be an option.
