This is how to watch the Kentucky Derby live online video stream and replay of the race
To watch the great horse race, viewers can simply download the NBC Live Extra free app for their mobile devices like tablets and smart phones, or watch the live stream directly from the web site on their computer.
With the app downloaded, or once logged into the site, viewers will be prompted to select their television provider from the list of participating companies, and then begin the video stream.
