If you are a superfan of Supercross and Motocross, then you will be happy to know you have a broad choice of viewing venues. While some options are definitely more expensive than others, you’ll be happy to know that the newest option is one of the cheapest.
If it is purely Supercross and Motocross that you want, then your best option is to signup for either MAVTV for $6.99 per month or NBC's Peacock Premium for $5 per month. These options will give you access to all of the AMA Supercross and Lucas Oil Motocross events.
Our goal is to outline some of the service options available and check them out by price, quality, and selection. Remember, there are a lot of streaming services available and more pop-up every day. The selection can be maddening, but we find out how to get the best almost painlessly.

For the 50th Anniversary Season of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship there is a new venue to get your MX fix. MAVTV Motorsports Network has created a broadcast partnership with Lucas Oil for this 2022 season and is the hot new place to go watch AMA Supercross and Motocross.
So now you might be asking: what is MAVTV and where can I get it?
MAVTV Motorsport Network is a traditional television station and a streaming tv service. The MAVTV channel or television station can be accessed from a huge list of tv providers including: fios by verizon, suddenlink, Frontier, hulu + LIVE TV, vidgo, fubo TV, XTREME, DIRECTV, U-verse, YouTubeTV, optimum, Spectrum, ATMOSPHERE, and TIKILIVE.
If TV packages is not your thing and you like to get your entertainment streaming over the internet direct from the source, then MAVTV PLUS is for you. As of early 2022, they have two plans: monthly for $6.99 and yearly for $99. The monthly price may be a temporary promotional price as 7 X 12 = 84 so get in while you can.
MAVTV Motorsports Network is definitely a step of from the Peacock option as you are not just limited to AMA Motocross and Supercross. MAVTV includes a huge roster of racing to watch including: Arenacross, Nascar, Drag Racing, GNCC, Sprint cars, Destruction Derby, Mud Bogs, Air racing, Boat racing, Superbikes... and the list just keeps going and going.
This is definitely the option for you if motorsports is your thing as you will not run short of something to watch.

There are many outlets available for Supercross enjoyment. Many sports bars offer the service but, unfortunately, the COVID-19 outbreak has made that method a bit tricky over the last few years. So the best way to watch AMA Supercross is to subscribe to one of the many streaming services that offer this in their packages, with the best option being Peacock.
Virtually everything is being streamed these days so it is unlikely that you will be able to catch Supercross or any other sporting event on analog Television anymore. Being wildly popular, it is no wonder that so many services provide Supercross events along with other sports segments.
NBC Sports. (Free recaps)
If you are just looking for highlights or have no room in your budget, then NBC Sports is a free service offering new and clips related to the sporting world. Aside from Supercross and Motocross, you get access to a whole host of other motorsports, football, baseball, you name it. Want a quick-fix of dirt-track mayhem? This is your site.
Peacock TV. (The $5 option)
Peacock TV is a premium streaming service offered under the NBC umbrella. This is the place to watch the 2020 and newer seasons of Motocross for only $5 a month! If you want a larger selection of viewing choices that includes a huge number of movies and popular sitcoms in addition to sports, Peacock TV is a great place to start. The service has two packages: Peacock Premium offered at $4.99/Mo; and Plus at $9.99.
NBC’s Pro Motocross On-Demand. (The old way - $55 per year)
This was the old option for paying NBC to watch streaming MX/SX and was superseded by Peacock after the 2019 racing season.
Absolutely! The 2022 Supercross season is underway and the best venue to live stream is NBC’s Peacock Premium. You can watch live events the night of, or go back and watch replay previous races from 2022 thru 2020.
Plus, NBC Sports Peacock Premium provides an easy-to-read Supercross schedule so you will be there for the next race series. You may find series schedules elsewhere, but they all come from NBC.
If you have a smartphone, a computer, or a Smart TV and an internet connection then you can stream Supercross. Being one of the most popular sports, you will find it readily available via Peacock Premium. Do not be fooled into paying for a service that you do not need.
From this site, you get access to the live content and past races. Surely, this is the best deal offered on the web. But do your own research and be sure you look very closely at what is being offered to you. You may be tricked into paying more for a single service of much lower quality. See below for more information. Welcome to the Internet!
For some reason, people assume that sites like Reddit, Twitter, and others have access to Supercross. Any site claiming to stream supercross, especially for free, is not doing you any favors. This is explained in the next paragraph.
While Reddit does not directly stream the events on their platform, they have links to take you to live streaming sites that are most likely sketchy and/or illegal. Wasting your time following traplines that will take you to one-off streaming sites that inevitably get their content from NBC is useless. Your best bet is to go directly to NBC.
Not only will you have a larger selection of sporting events to choose from, but you will also get content from past, and present in an easy-to-navigate format.
NBC Sports via Peacock Premium has the license for Supercross/Motocross, so there is really no reason to view it anywhere else. Of course, you will suffer the minor inconvenience of ads for the $5 streaming plan but that is a small price to pay. And for those of you who can’t stand ads, just grab the $10 plan.
You can stream Supercross anywhere you can reach an internet connection. If you do not have internet, then your next best bet is a friend's house or a sports-themed establishment.
As far as streaming services go, here is a list of streaming services that offer NBCSN:
If you do have a smartphone with a good data plan then you can stream Supercross from anywhere: Chuck-e-Cheese during your child's birthday party, your brother's wedding, a friend's funeral, even at a five-star restaurant during a nice intimate dinner with your wife or husband. The possibilities are endless.
Haven’t cut the cord yet? Well, then you are going to have to contact your cable TV or satellite provider to add or upgrade to the appropriate plan. Here are some tv providers and the appropriate channel for NBCSN:
Supercross races from 2020 and earlier are archived by NBC and cannot be accessed through NBC Sports. And though you may be able to find snippets of past races elsewhere, we advise a subscription to the Peacock Service. At $4.99 or $9.99, it really is not a bad deal. In fact, if you love other sports then it's a great deal!
Hopefully, this article has made clear that many sites tell you that you can watch live Supercross through their platform; that the only real value you will get is through the official network, which is NBC. We did a lot of research when starting this article, and the results were confusing to say the least. However, by pressing on we found that the real option for Supercross is NBC.
And while the subscription may entail a monthly fee, this is the only site where you get legitimate content. Feel free to explore for yourself and if you get wrapped around the axle on your searches come back here for some clarity.
