Following Lewis Hamilton’s win in France last week, Formula 1 drivers and teams head to Spielberg for the 2018 Austrian Grand Prix on Sunday. Since the race moved to the Red Bull Ring in 2014, Mercedes has topped the podium every year, meaning Hamilton has a good opportunity to increase his 14-point lead over Sebastian Vettel this weekend.
In the United States, the race is scheduled to start at 9:10 a.m. ET and will be broadcast on ESPN 2. If you don’t have cable or can’t get to a TV, you can still easily watch the race live on your computer, phone or streaming device by signing up for one of the following cable-free, live-TV streaming services:
In addition to a Netflix-like on-demand streaming library, Hulu now also offers a bundle of live TV channels, including ESPN 2. You can sign up for “Hulu with Live TV” right here, and you can then watch a live stream of the game on your computer via the Hulu website, or on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the Hulu app.
If you can’t watch live, “Hulu with Live TV” also comes with both its extensive on-demand library (which has many shows available after they air) and 50 hours of Cloud DVR storage (with the ability to upgrade to “Enhanced Cloud DVR,” which gives you 200 hours of DVR space and the ability to fast forward through commercials), allowing you to record the race if you want.
ESPN 2 is included in the “Sling Orange” channel package, while ESPN U is in the “Sports Extra” add-on. You can sign up for a free 7-day trial of both bundles, and you can then watch live on your computer via the Sling TV website, or on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the Sling TV app.
If you can’t watch live, you can get 50 hours of cloud DVR storage as an additional add-on.
You’ll need to sign in to a cable provider in order to watch the race this way, but if you don’t have cable, you can still just sign up for one of the above options and then use your Hulu or Sling TV credentials to sign in and watch on ESPN’s platforms.
