Why You Should Like the Supercross and Motocross Streaming Package Moving to Peacock

In case you missed it yesterday, NBC announced it was moving all the streaming for Monster Energy Supercross and Lucas Oil Pro Motocross from NBC Sports Gold to their Peacock Premium. Honestly, it’s a great move for us viewers and here are a few reasons why.

1.) It’s Cheaper

Last year’s Supercross and Motocross package for all 29 races was $89.99, which is you’re paying per month, it averages out to around $11.25 per month. Unless I f’d up the math, which is entirely possible. Peacock Premium on the other hand is available for $4.99 per month.

2.) You Also Get Movies and Stuff

In addition to supercross and motocross, if you purchase Peacock Premium, you’ll also have access to their entire library of movies, TV shows, etc.

3.) It’s Still Commercial Free

While the other shows on Peacock Premium do have ads for the $5 a month, supercross and motocross will remain commercial FREE. So you can watch Dig Dugs running around between motos.

4.) You Still Get All the Same Coverage

Like previous years, you still get access to Supercross qualifiers and races, and Pro Motocross main practice sessions, qualifiers, Moto 1s, and Moto 2s. 

5.) Access to Other Motorsports

While nothing is official, it appears NBC is moving a host of their motorsports’ programming to Peacock, which means that $5 per month will get you access to not only supercross and motocross, but possibly MotoGP, IndyCar, etc. According to the press release, “Supercross and Pro Motocross streaming coverage on Peacock will complement robust linear coverage in 2021 of both series as part of NBC Sports’ ‘Home of Motorsports’ programming.”

6.) Coverage is Still on Cable

Even if you don’t want to pay $5 per month you can still watch across NBC and NBC Sports Network next year as they said in the release yesterday that “NBC Sports’ telecast schedule for the 2021 Monster Energy Supercross season will be announced soon.”

7.) There Is Still an International Package For SX

Don’t worry, if you live outside the U.S. you can still watch supercross with the Supercross Video Pass, just like last year. At this point, we’re not sure what Pro Motocross is going to do, but look for an announcement once the schedule comes out.

  1. I am very happy about this. As an Xfinity customer, I get the Peacock channel for free. If you haven’t watched the “Yellowstone” series yet, it alone is worth the price of admission.

    Now, if we can just get Weege and Mathis as SX commentators, we’ll be cookin’ with gas.

  2. Will they still have previous years SX and Pro Motocross like before? It’s always good to go back and watch previous years events.

  3. They baited and switched some other sport saying live and replays! Only to find out you get “live” for the price of the subscription. But to watch replays you have to be part of a cable service or dish provider. Which would be an additional $50 a month at least.So to watch replays do we need to be subscribed to cable tv or a dish provider? If it is just like the “NBC Sports Gold” I had last year then I’m fine with it. If not, then Supercross promoters greed won’t get any money from me because I’m willing to pay $100 a year for coverage of both sports with on demand replays, but not the added $600 per year for a provider.
