The 2018 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas from December 6th to the 15th will be an incredible event for rodeo fans. But, what if you can’t make it to Las Vegas for the NFR or if you do not have cable? We are going to talk about how you can watch the NFR live online no matter where you are in the world.
NFR Live on ProRodeoTV
ProRodeoTV is a great new paid service that the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association launched in late 2017. The ProRodeoTV broadcasts every single PRCA rodeo and it has great coverage of every rodeo. It is the best way to watch all of the rodeos all around the United States, even when the events are not on television. The service only costs $80 for a yearly subscription which is incredibly cheap if you are planning to watch more rodeos besides the National Finals Rodeo.
One of the issues of using this service is that if you live in the United States you cannot watch the National Finals Rodeo live. CBS dictates that ProRodeoTV cannot show the event live; the service has to wait until 12 hours after it airs on the CBS Sports Network. That means you will have to wait until 10 AM EST the next day if you want to watch the NFR.
If you live outside of the United States then this is the best option to watch the National Finals Rodeo live from Las Vegas. CBS does not own the international rights to the event so ProRodeoTV can show the event live without any delay. Fans from New Zealand all the way to Mexico can watch all 10 nights of the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo.
CBS Sports Network App
If you live in the United States you have to go through the CBS Sports Network App in order to watch the 2018 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo online. There are a few different ways to gain access to the CBS Sports Network app and you can even get a free trial so you will not have to pay anything to watch the NFR. Here are the services that you can use to watch the NFR: Sling TV, DirecTV Now, YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, and Playstation Vue. All services have different pros and cons that you should weigh out before selecting the service.
NFR Live on ProRodeoLive
If you are looking for a live radio stream of the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas then you can go straight to Pro Rodeo Live. The website boasts coverage of the Ram National Circuit Finals, the Reno Rodeo, the Cheyenne Frontier Days, the Pendleton Round-Up, and of course the 2018 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo! The best part about the service is that it is completely free and always will be. All you have to do is make sure that your browser is updated to the most recent version and then just go to ProRodeoLive and click the player at the top of the page to listen in to the WNFR.
ProRodeoLive also broadcasts on SiriusXM RuralRadio, channel 147 so if you have a Sirius subscription that is another way you can listen in to the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. ProRodeoLive has a variety of different broadcasters so make sure that you check out their Facebook page in order to figure out who is going to be the announcers for the National Finals Rodeo this year.
