You'll need a subscription to a cable, satellite, or television streaming service if you want access to everything.

Here are some of the most popular NASCAR series and where to stream them.

  • NASCAR Cup Series: It starts on Fox with the first 16 races and ends on NBC with the final 20; all are available for live streaming. Some individual races air and stream via FS1.
  • NASCAR Xfinity Series: The first 14 races air on FS1, and the final 19 will air on a mix of NBC and NBCSN. Every race is available for live streaming.

Television Streaming Services That Include NASCAR

If you don't have a cable or satellite subscription, you can still stream every NASCAR series through a television streaming service that includes Fox, NBC, FS1, and NBCSN.

These services work a lot like cable and satellite television, in that they allow you to watch live TV, but you stream the live channels over a high-speed internet connection. You can use these services with your computer, laptop, phone, tablet, or on your television with a Roku or other streaming device.

The key is to look for a service that carries your local Fox and NBC stations in addition to national FS1 and NBCSN channels.

Here are the best options for streaming NASCAR:

  • Hulu with Live TV: This service provides the most extensive access to NBC, most areas also have Fox. It also includes both NBCSN and FS1. If NBC or Fox isn't available in your area, try a different service.
  • YouTube TV: NBC is available in most major markets, and a lot of smaller markets, though this service. Fox is also widely available, as are NBCSN and FS1.
  • How can I watch Formula 1 races online?

    To stream F1 races, you're best advised to get access to ESPN and/or ESPN 2 as they have the broadcast rights to F1 races for US audiences. You can also gain access to one of ESPN's channels through a TV streaming service like YouTube TV, Sling TV, or Hulu with Live TV. Of course, for the total F1 experience, there's F1 TV that allows its Pro level subscribers to switch between the main race feed and a live onboard camera in each car.

  • How can I watch IndyCar races online?

    Since NBCUniversal holds the exclusive US broadcasting rights to IndyCar Racing, your best bet is to stream Peacock, NBC's streaming platform. For live race coverage, you may have to go with Peacock Premium, but we're only talking $4.99 a month. Of course, check your streaming services like Sling, fuboTV, and DirecTV Stream, which may have access to one of NBCUniversal's channels like NBC or USA.
