NBC coverage of Track & Field for 2017


While this release was sent February 11, we thought it would be great to remind you about the upcoming terrestrial TV for athletics in the U.S. While we support streaming video as great media access to major events, the move to paid content access is limiting the access to the sport, not adding to the sport. We understand that paid streaming is a business plan and respect any media organization who can thrive and grow in this media environment.

Check in with runnerspace.com, flotrack.org and NBC Sports among others. BeInSports is also covering major athletic events around the world.
