It’s the 21st century and broadcast television is a thing of the past. Well, it’s not quite the truth, but online streams are the norm and Saturday’s Kentucky Derby will have live coverage from all angles. As we detailed earlier, the coverage is already underway on Versus, with the Kentucky Derby undercard moving right along throughout the morning. But for those that are unable to get to a TV for Saturday’s 137th running of the Kentucky Derby, there is hope.
NBC will have the full broadcast beginning at 1 p.m. and running all the way through the Kentucky Derby, the 11th race of the day. Post time for the Kentucky Derby is set for 3:24 p.m. here on the West Coast, giving us plenty of time to prepare for the big race. And part of that preparation is finding a legitimate, legal online stream.
As the broadcast partner for the Kentucky Derby, NBC has the rights to the race, and has also been advertising a free online stream. You should be able to find the stream at the NBC website here. You can also find more information on the race, including pregame news, here and here.
The Kentucky Derby gets underway on Saturday at Churchill Downs. Stay with our 2011 Kentucky Derby StoryStream for previews, odds and analysis up to and throughout the derby. For more on the race, head over to SB Nation's Kentucky Derby StoryStream or check out And Down The Stretch They Come.
