Cordcutter’s Guide to the 2019 Indy 500

The Indianapolis 500 is one of the year’s biggest racing events and luckily for cord cutters, you don’t need a Pay TV subscription to watch!

What: 103rd Running of the Indy 500
When: Sunday, May 26 at 12:30 pm ET
Where to Watch: NBC,, NBC Sports app

Watch With an Antenna

For cord cutters, an antenna is one of the most important things to have in order to save money on your Pay TV subscription. It’s also the best and most affordable way to watch the Indy 500 without cable. And, other than the one-time purchase cost of your antenna, it’s completely free to watch TV.

The antenna picks up over-the-air broadcasts from channels like ABC, NBC, CBS, and FOX. With the Indy 500 being broadcast on NBC, all you really need is an antenna to watch the race.
