How to watch the Indy 500 without cable

The good news is that the Indy 500 will air on network television—NBC, to be exact—so cable is not required to tune in. But you might need to pick up an antenna, if you don’t have one already. You can also watch the race through the official Indianapolis Motor Speedway (IMS) live stream.

If none of those are an option, you can watch it (or sign up for a free trial) on the following streaming services that carry NBC and/or NBCSN:
