“NASCAR renews with Fox, NBC”

“Digital media companies have engaged NASCAR about its rights. But circuit executives will decide that a digital deal would put too much pressure on team sponsors that need the biggest audience available. This will remain a broadcast-heavy deal, but expect NBC to win the right to put a number of races exclusively on its Peacock streaming service.” 

This prediction comes from Jordan Ourand, who is a well-known reporter and analyst for Sports Business Journal. On top of that, he’s also the co-host of the Marchand & Ourand Sports Media Podcast. So maybe it could very well be true.

But the fans are really not thrilled by NBC and FOX getting the contract.

NASCAR fans don’t want races to be streamed on NBC and FOX again

FIX and NBC has been the home for NASCAR for a while now, being the main channels streaming races. However, the viewers weren’t exactly happy about it. Because they are both pretty infamous for the sheer amount of ads showcased during a race.

Of course, it takes away from the experience a decent bit. Moreover, NASCAR will also make some races exclusive to Peacock.

Clearly, this is a pretty drastic change for NASCAR and one that certainly doesn’t seem to be going over the fans too well. But it makes sense because the exclusivism of race streams to pay-to-access streaming services like Peacock makes it hard for people to access. And NASCAR is directly implying the need for another subscription on top of their regular TV broadcast only to follow races. So, what is your take on this move? Let us know in the comments.
