How to Watch the London Marathon Without Knowing the Results

April 25, 2015

We’ve come up with a way for people in the United States to watch the television coverage of the incredible 2015 Virgin London Marathon without knowing the results.

Article continues below player.

If you want to watch live (women start at 4:20 am eastern/men at 5:10 eastern) click here.

1) If you have cable/satellite TV and get Universal Sports, the solution is simple, DVR the taped broadcast of the London Marathon that is on Sunday at 9 am-11:30 eastern. Watch it when you want.

2) If you don’t get Universal Sports, you can watch Universal Sports via Sling which is the new service that lets people get cable TV channels on their laptop,phone, or tablet and cut the cord. You can try sling for free for 30 days or 7 days depending on the package (2 options below). For Universal Sports, Sling has an incredible DVR service that records everything on Universal Sports so you can wake up, fire up Sling on your lalptop, ipad, phone, or Roku and watch the 9-11:30am eastern broadcast of the marathon on Universal Sports at your leisure.

The World Relays will be on Universal Sports next Saturday and Sunday as well.

Disclosure: LRC does get a commission if you signup for Sling above, but it is a tremendous service we subscribe to ourselves and watch via phone and Roku. The new Sling interface is top notch. The DVR functionality is amazing (although we understand the DVR does not work for ESPN and a few others, as we only have option #1 above).
