2017 Le Mans 24 Hour Race

OK.... Looks like our old "friend" FOX, once again has the broadcasting rights to the LM24. So..... It looks like, as of now, starting at 8:30 AM until about 10:00 AM'ish Saturday, FS1 will air the beginning hours of the race. Not sure who has it between that sign-off and 1:00PM. 1PM Saturday, FS2HD (FOX SPORTS 2) picks it up and goes until 1:00 AM. Then we bounce back to FS1 from Saturday at 1:00 AM until 9:30 AM. The race in it entirety will be streamed on FOX SPORTS GO.

A word of caution. After last year. DON'T BELIEVE THIS UNTIL YOU SEE IT ! ! ! Yeah I'm still pissed about last year.

Don't forget to "tune in" to Hobby Talk Diecast Customizing and Dioramas starting at 2:30 PM EDT, Saturday, for the 1/64 Le Mans 24 presented by Clearhooter. This is the ONLY place to see it and it won't change stations on you.

If you hear of a change in the FOX schedule PLEASE update it here.

I can't wait to see some or all of it! I have Direct TV and haven't heard of any schedule changes yet. I hear ya on the possible pre-empting stuff, they put on what they think folks want to see...

Looking forward to your thread bud

Last year LM weekend I went to bed about 4:30 AM EDT Sunday morning. Made sure where the end of the race was going to be shown and set the TV up to record the end of the race. Somewhere after, that the brains at FOX decided I'd rather see a freekin' golf match. (I'd just as soon go fishing, watch grass grow or paint dry). I slept in, with the knowledge I had the end of the race recorded. To my surprise, in some kind of early morning brain fart, the powers to be at FOX decided to change the station which meant I recorded a golf match that had been rained out the day before. I figured doing the 1/64 LM would keep me awake rather than depend on FOX to live up to their schedule. My understanding is that race last year was one of the closest finishes ever. Thanks again FOX..... Oh yeah and once again FOX. BITE ME ! ! !

Check YouTube. I watched the last hour of qualifications last afternoon. I bet someone will be live streaming it on YouTube.

Unfortunately I don't have cable or satellite TV but I do have internet so YouTube is my only option.

A lot of those services require one to be subscribed to the channel in order to access the streaming service (at least that's how most of them worked when I was doing cable tech support).

Most of them are region limited, I know Comedy Central's website can tell I'm not in the US. If I want to watch say The Daily Show it tells me to go to The Comedy Network's website, the channel that carries the show up here in Canuckistan.

Thanks but someone was streaming the whole race on YouTube from Eurosport 1.

Porsche won overall with Jackie Chan's car coming in 2nd overall! Aston Martin beat Corvette in the GT class on the last lap! Ford came in 2nd! Very exciting! Poor Toyota with the fastest car crapped out.

They can go Fox themselves.
A network broadcasting for people who like to pull the wool over their own eyes.

I quite enjoyed the broadcast from Eurosport 1. Their coverage was informative and entertaining.

I thought that was FNC and FBC, but that the others were 'normal'.

I'm uninformed as to what you guys are referring to.
I was making a slam against Fox's Political News.
But I should retract that because the rules here.
