STAMFORD, Conn. – Peacock Premium will become the new streaming home of NTT IndyCar Series coverage beginning with the upcoming season.

NBC Sports’ exclusive streaming coverage will move from NBC Sports Gold’s IndyCar Pass to Peacock Premium, which is available for $4.99 per month.

Peacock Premium will provide fans in the U.S. with live coverage of IndyCar qualifying and practice sessions as well as coverage surrounding the 105th running of the Indianapolis 500, Indy Lights races, race-day warmups and full-event replays of IndyCar races. Peacock Premium will surround the 105th Indianapolis 500 with exclusive practice and qualifying coverage as well as ancillary content.

“Peacock Premium will offer NTT IndyCar Series fans in-demand track action at tremendous value,” said Penske Entertainment Corp. President & CEO Mark Miles. “Alongside NBC Sports, we’re providing comprehensive coverage of practice and qualifications throughout our season, while also connecting to a larger platform with a world-class roster of programming.”

IndyCar on Peacock Premium will also feature IndyCar archival and library content, and other motorsports shoulder programming.

As previously announced, all 2021 INDYCAR races, along with select additional race weekend sessions, will be broadcast on either NBC or NBC Sports Network.

Last week NBC officials revealed that the broadcasting company would be shutting down NBCSN at the end of the year.
