By Peter Chubb - May 7, 2016

Kentucky Derby Day 2016 is finally here once again, and while we will not be offering you any odds for the Kentucky Derby, we will give you details on how you can watch a livestream, and also today’s schedule.

What channel is Kentucky Derby on is always a question that gets asked, and we can tell you that it will be live later on NBC Sports.

The NBC Sports Live Coverage, which you can watch a live stream of right here allows you to be able to watch the short event online, which is ideal for those of you that are unable to get near a TV. You will also be able to watch this event on the NBC Sports app on your Android or iOS device.

As for the Kentucky Derby times, NBC is to begin their live coverage from 4PM ET, the walk from the barn is at 6:15 p.m. and post time will be 6:34 PM Eastern.

There are other ways to watch today’s Kentucky Derby, such as on TwinSpires.com and TwinSpiresTV. We have been told by some of our readers that this is the best online racing experience, although we will just have to take their word for it.

You can also use the NextVR app to watch the event in virtual reality by using the Samsung Gear VR headset, although we are not sure just how much this will improve the experience.

While we do not wish to go in to too many details about a sporting event, we thought you might like to learn more about the 2016 Kentucky Derby TV schedule, contenders and more by visiting SBNation.
