It’s once again time for the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and watching a live stream of the historic race from France is easier than ever.

In the United States, coverage of the 85th running of Le Mans will be on Fox Sports 1 and Fox Sports 2. FS1 will have it Saturday, June 17, from 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. ET. It will then move over to FS2 from 1 p.m. to 1 a.m. (Sunday, June 18) ET, and back to FS1 from 1 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. ET.

If you don’t have a cable subscription or can’t get to a TV, you can still watch all the action via over-the-top streaming services, which allow you to stream a handful of channels for a monthly fee: Sling TV is my personal recommendation due to cost, but DirecTV Now is good for watching more channels, while other services such as Fubo TV and PlayStation Vue offer different pros and cons.

And if you’re only interested in watching Le Mans, every service offers a free trial.

The entire race can be watched on Fox Sports Go if you have a cable log-in, but here’s a complete rundown of your streaming options if you don’t have cable:


Cheapest Option: Sling TV

DirecTV Now’s cheapest bundle that includes both Fox Sports 1 and Fox Sports 2, “Go Big,” comes in at $60 per month, but it includes a ton of channels. If you’re looking for an experience closest to cable and are willing to pay, this would be the one to go with.

A New Option: Fubo TV

If you’re looking to test out a new product, Fubo TV is an interesting option. While the lack of ESPN is a drawback for many sports events, the service includes both Fox Sports 1 and Fox Sports 2, and it’s also worth noting that Fubo is a fledgling product that’s still growing its arsenal of channels, so it’s possible the service will add ESPN and others before the end of the year.

Though it’s more expensive than Sling’s base packages, Fubo TV is only $35 per month, has a DVR feature at no extra cost and offers a mostly sports-based channel lineup. It includes NBA TV, Golf Channel, Big Ten Network, Fox Soccer Plus and all 10 of the beIN Sports networks. The latter two are especially big if you’re looking for an international soccer package.

Here’s the rundown of Fubo TV’s bundle:

2017 Le Mans Channels Included: Fox Sports 1, Fox Sports 2

Total Channels Included: 58. You can find the complete channel list here

Price: $34.99 per month

Extras: Watch on two different devices at once; three DVR spots for free

Free Trial: 7 days

How to Sign Up & Watch:

1. Click here to sign up and launch your free trial. You’ll need to enter your credit card information when signing up, but if you cancel your subscription before the trial ends, you won’t be charged.

2. If you’re on a computer, you can start watching TV right away in your Internet browser without having to download a desktop app. If you’re on a mobile device, download the Fubo app.

Most Streams At Once: PlayStation Vue

If you’re in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas, San Francisco or Miami, you may want to ignore PlayStation Vue, as the cheapest bundle for those markets is “Access,” which costs $40 per month. Those in other markets, however, can sign up for “Access Slim,” which is a more reasonable $30 per month.

PlayStation Vue does have it’s advantages, however, as users can watch on five separate devices at once, which is more than any other service.

Here’s a look at the “Access Slim” bundle:

2017 Le Mans Channels Included: Fox Sports 1, Fox Sports 2

Total Channels Included: 40-plus, depending on local channels available. You can find the complete channel list here
