You’ll need a cable or satellite log-in and password to access the stream. The site’s frequently asked questions page has a rundown of technical requirements and other information.

With an App:

Mobile users can watch the race via the NBC Sports Live Extra App, which you can download in the App Store or the Google Play Store. As is the case with the desktop live stream, you’ll need a cable provider log-in to watch.

Roku users can add the NBC Sports Live Extra channel here but like the other apps will need a cable login to watch the Kentucky Derby live stream.

Nyquist is the favorite to find the Winner’s Circle. He is coming off an impressive win in the Florida Derby where he defeated the undefeated favorite, Mohaymen. Exaggerator is next in line in the odds with Mohaymen listed in third after his disappointing showing in the Florida Derby. Gun Runner leads in the point standings and is fourth in the odds.
