0 Comments

Wondering where, when and how to watch the 143rd Kentucky Derby? You can find where to watch the Kentucky Derby, Kentucky Oaks, and pre-race coverage as well as post positions below.

NBCSN kicks off its Kentucky Derby coverage Thursday at 4pm ET with two hours of original programming. The network will air a total of 21 races, including nine this Saturday. Among those races, the Kentucky Oaks will air tomorrow, live from Churchill Downs, on NBCSN. This year’s Oaks race doesn’t have a heavy favorite, but Farrell, Abel Tasman, Miss Sky Warrior, Paradise Woods, and Salty are among the names to watch.

On Saturday, coverage will start on NBCSN at 12pm ET before being thrown over to NBC at 2:30pm ET. The broadcast on NBC will feature angles from more than 50 cameras,  interviews from Bob Costas, a guest appearance from professional golfer Jason Day, and more. Meanwhile, those who tune in either on NBCsports.com or who stream from their phone, tablet, or connected TV device via the NBC Sports app will be able to watch the race through a mosaic view of four different camera angles at once.
