The 2018 National Rodeo Finals are taking place in Las Vegas this year for the 34th year. Contestants are seeking $10 million in prize money at the Thomas & Mack Center, which is the huge pot for Rodeo. Fans all over the United States and the world are excited for 10 straight nights of amazing rodeo events from bull riding to steer wrestling. But, where can you watch coverage of this event if you are not from the US or in the US? We are going to show you the various ways to watch the 10 days of WNFR live in Las Vegas from December 6th to the 13th.
CBS Sports Network
The CBS Sports Network has the rights to broadcast this year’s National Rodeo Finals and they will be airing the rodeo every single night starting at 10 PM EST on their network. This is great news for rodeo because a major sports network is showing every single night of the event and they always have excellent coverage. We can expect to see a veteran announcing crew at this event that will be sure to entertain fans.
Pro Rodeo TV
You can watch the 2018 National Rodeo Finals on the Pro Rodeo TV website. The only downside is you have to pay $80 a year in order to access the site and watch their rodeo events. This is the best bet for any international viewers as there are no country restrictions on their website so no matter where you are in the world you can watch all 10 nights of action.
CBS Sports App
If you have a cable subscription you can access the CBS sports app that allows you to stream the Rodeo from anywhere in the US. The CBS Sports App is available on the Google App Store, the App Store, Roku, Amazon Fire Stick, and other smart devices that can download the app.
The app will be streaming every single night of the rodeo’s coverage in Vegas.
DirecTV Now offers CBS Sports in every single one of their packages. Their basic package is only $35 a month which is relatively cheap compared to other options. One of the downsides is that there is only a 7 day free trial for this service so it will not cover every single event that is being offered this year.
Sling TV has the lowest price that you will be able to watch the National Rodeo Finals starting at just $25 a month. They offer the CBS Sports Network so that you can watch every single night of the rodeo no matter where you are in the United States and you will not need a cable subscription.
YouTube TV has great quality content and they have a wide variety of sports channels that come with their basic package. Granted, their basic package starts at $40 a month which can be expensive for some people but it comes with 9 sports channels including CBS Sports, 3 Fox Sports Channels, and 5 ESPN channels.
Hulu With Live TV
Hulu is also trying to compete with other companies by offering television on a multitude of different platforms and devices. Their TV package is expensive at $40 a month but the also have their own original content that cannot be found anywhere else so that it is a positive if you are looking for a long-term plan.
PlayStation Vue is the most expensive option of all the options currently available and it starts at $45 a month. Playstation Vue also only has a 5-day free trial so you could only watch half of the rodeo if you were planning to watch just on a free trial. Sadly, this is probably the worst option if you are looking to watch all 10 days of the Rodeo.
The 2018 National Rodeo Finals are coming up quickly and you should figure out your viewing situation so you can enjoy all 10 nights and all of the different events that the rodeo has to offer. If you live outside of the United States your best bet is to pay the $80 so that you can easily watch all 10 nights of the rodeo. Plus, you will get access to all of the rodeo events throughout the year. At a monthly cost, it is only $6.67 a month which is cheaper than any other option on this list.
