NBC is included in many TV packages, so if you have cable, you’re set. If you prefer to watch online, you can use your subscription credentials to log into NBC via your favorite web browser or the NBC app on your chosen device.

For cord-cutters, live TV streaming services are your best bet. Select a service that carries NBC, the official broadcaster of the Tour de France. For instance, FuboTV is a popular option and offers a free trial. However, availability can vary depending on your location.
How to Watch Tour de France Outside of Your Country?
Suppose you’re outside of the USA or the NBC coverage area. You can use a Virtual Private Network (VPN) service to access live streaming services. A VPN alters your IP address, tricking the streaming platform into thinking you’re in a different location, such as your home country.
For example, if you’re in Canada and unable to access your local TV streaming services, a VPN can help you bypass this restriction. Here’s a quick guide:
- Subscribe to a VPN service like ExpressVPN.
