Kodi Streaming Options to Watch Kentucky Derby 2024

It’s that time of the year when we have to prepare for the big day. The 150th Kentucky Derby might be a few months away, but remember, time flies and it’s better to be ready to witness the action than run with the risk of not setting up your equipment in time.

This is one of the biggest horse racing events in the world, where thousands of fans go to see the action in person, and millions of horse racing fans are watching the race on their TV or other portable devices.

The Kentucky Derby has always been a difficult race to secure a broadcast, especially if you are a non-US citizen. The organizers sell the rights for broadcasting the race overseas to some TV networks like SkySports, which means that the first option to watch the race is to check with your local TV cable provider.

You never know, sometimes a local sports channel might air the race and you’ll save the struggles of setting up an online stream. But for those who cannot get access through a local TV network, don’t worry, you can still watch the race with Kodi.

In today’s article, we will take a look at Kodi’s streaming options and teach you how to watch the Kentucky Derby race step-by-step.

How to Set Up Kodi

Kodi is an excellent media center and one of the best apps for watching sports.

You can use it on your TV, phone, or tablet and you can unlock certain streaming channels and TV networks by adding special add-ons.

However, with hundreds of Kodi add-ons available, selecting the best ones may be overwhelming and even daunting. In my experience, many add-ons simply do not work, and some of them are even harmful, including malware that might destroy your laptop.

So, in order to watch the Kentucky Derby, you should pick an add-on that will allow you to access a TV network that will broadcast the race. The official broadcast of the Kentucky Derby will be on NBC Network and Peacock.

This means that we have to find add-ons that include these TV networks. Once you go through our guide, you’ll know how to set up a Kodi addon that features a TV network broadcasting the Kentucky Derby.

Before you do that, make sure you do some research about the Kentucky Derby here, including odds, contenders and past winners: twinspires.com/edge/racing/kentucky-derby/

What is The Best Add-on To Use

The Kentucky Derby can be seen live on Kodi. We recommend the NBC Sports Live Extra Legacy add-on because it provides the most consistent stream in high quality. However, it requires a cable subscription in the United States.

You might be able to locate a nice stream among any of the other add-ons listed above, but please keep in mind that this may be a trial-and-error process.

With the exception of the NBC Sports Live Extra Legacy Kodi add-on, we cannot guarantee the legality of streaming connections in any other add-ons you may find. Please do your own research and verify your local laws and restrictions before streaming.

Disclaimer: We don’t encourage any violation of copyright restrictions. Do your own research on your local streaming laws.

Because some Kodi content falls into a legal gray area, the majority of Kodi users will utilize a VPN to keep their activities hidden from their ISP. Choose a VPN that is fast enough to handle HD streaming, compatible with all Kodi add-ons, and does not maintain any logs of user behavior.

How to Install This Add-On

Here is a step-by-step guide on how to install this plugin

  1. The first step is to download the eracknaphobia’s Repo onto your device that has Kodi App: https://github.com/eracknaphobia/repo.eracknaphobia/blob/master/repository.eracknaphobia.zip?raw=true (copy and paste into a new tab)
  2. In Kodi 16 Jarvis, open Kodi and navigate to System > Add-ons > Install from zip file. In Kodi 17 Krypton or higher, go directly to Add-ons > Package Installer icon > Install from zip file
  3. Next, you’ll need to find and select the zip file you downloaded. After selecting it you’ll see a notification that the add-on is now enabled.
  4. Now select Install from the repository, navigate to eracknaphobia’s Repo > Video Add-ons > NBC Sports Live Extra Legacy, and install it
  5. After the add-on enabled notification, go to NBC Sports Live Extra Legacy > Configure
  6. Enter your cable subscription account information including your provider, username, and password, then press OK
  7. To access the Kentucky Derby Live Stream, from the Kodi home screen go to Videos > Add-Ons > NBC Sports Live Extra

You can always check other sports add-ons like Sport HD, Rising Tides, Mad Titan, The Loop, and more to see if they will air the Kentucky Derby.

Final Words

The setup process of Kodi might look complicated but, once you get the hang of it, it will go smoothly. The only problem with Kodi is finding the perfect add-on, and this is a trial-and-error process. Some of these add-ons might not work even when done by instructions.

So, make sure you have enough time to set up Kodi on your device and test it out to see whether or not it works.
