Sports streaming: The Indianapolis 500 and the Coca-Cola 600

When I cut the cord, the biggest problem I encountered was how to watch sports. Remember, this was 2011 and a full four years before Sling TV launched. There were no live streaming services. Maybe that's why I don't have any problem doing without one and think they really aren't necessary.

But anyway, we're talking about sports and how a streamer can watch sports. In particular, there are people that want to watch the Indy 500 or the Coca-Cola 600. If you're a streamer and you want to watch a race, what do you do?

You do have options. One is to use an antenna. For the Indy 500, find your local NBC affiliate, while for the Coca-Cola 600 you need to find your local Fox affiliate and watch that way. If you have an Air TV, a Tablo, or a TiVo DVR, you can even record the races. Or if you live in one of the 32 markets served by Locast, that's an option. You can also watch the Indy 500 on Peacock Premium.

For the live streaming services, Sling Blue is $35/month, Vidgo is $55, and Hulu + Live TV, YouTube TV, and Fubo are each $65, while AT&T TV is $75/month.

Ten years ago, there was one option: antenna. Okay, there was go to a sports bar, which you still have today. But today, you have a lot more options in your Streaming Life.
