When and Where to Watch the 2019 Kentucky Derby, Plus Update on Post Position Draw

By Posted on 0 Comments 2 min read 611 views

Ailing–but improving–cats, as well as another deadline or two,  may be occupying my time, but it’s Derby Week.

Which means, it’s the holidays here.

Time for the annual where/when/how to get in the spirit post if you can’t be in Louisville. Or if you’re in Louisville and are allergic to crowds.

Heads Up, the Post Position Draw

The Post Position Draw has been moved from TV to online streaming. Last year, it was on Facebook. This year, it’ll be on the Kentucky Derby website starting at 11 am ET on Tuesday morning.

Derby Weekend

NBC Sports is producing coverage and will offer a live stream on its website.

This article on TechRadar lists where and when to watch if you’re a cord-cutter or you live outside the US.

A note from me

Back in 2009 when I started this tradition of “when and where to watch the Derby,” our options were cable or regular TV.

Also, NBC Sports has a long-term contract for the Triple Crown races, so the outlet covering the races is going to be the same for a long time.

Yet, I’m always amazed at how many people turn to this blog to learn more about when and where to watch. Even now, as blogs receive less traffic and social media rules the internet.

So, thank you for your trust.

And thank you, NBC Sports, for the following graphic, which I helped myself to.
