The Indianapolis 500 is moving to a new television home as part of a multiyear media rights deal between IndyCar and NBC. For the group’s featured race, the Indy 500, which moves to NBC in 2019, the deal ends a 54-year relationship with ABC.
The annual Indy race and seven other Verizon IndyCar Series races will be broadcast each year on NBC, with all remaining races in the series to be televised on NBCSN.
The new agreement includes rights to all races, qualifying and practice sessions. All races will also be live streamed on NBCSports.com and the NBC Sports app.
NBC Sports Gold, the NBC Sports Group’s direct-to-consumer product, will offer a package to IndyCar fans that features all qualifying and practices not televised live, all Indy Lights races, and full-event replays. Additional details, including the cost of the Gold offering, will be announced at a later date.
