The NASCAR 2020 race season returned in May with Kevin Harvick winning the Darlington 400 in May. For those looking to watch Nascar Online this season, this article will show you what channels you need and where you can watch them without a cable TV subscription.
Watching NASCAR Online
All races will air on Fox, NBC, FS1, and NBCSN. These channels are readily available without a cable TV subscription. All you need is a streaming device like Roku or Amazon Fire TV and a streaming service that carries those channels. I will detail each of these services, but let me give you the short answer on which of these are the best.
Hulu + Live TV and YouTube TV both carry FS1 and NBCSN. They also have local Fox and NBC in almost every market in the U.S.
Sling TV is the most affordable of the streaming services you can use to watch NASCAR. However, they only cary FOX and NBC in certain TV markets. I get into the details below and also mention a few other options if these three don’t work out for you.
Sling is the Most Affordable
Sling provides FS1 and NBCSN online as a part of their Sling TV Blue Package for $35 per month and offers Fox live in the following markets: New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, Detroit, Washington, DC, Atlanta, Houston, Miami/Ft.
