How to watch:
In USA: U.S. fans, we’ve got great news for you. We’ve learned you can watch this meet and all of the 2017 Diamond League season live on TV without shelling out $69.99 for the NBC Sports Gold Track & Field Pass. NBC has told us that all 14 meets will air live on TV in the U.S., either on NBC, NBCSN or Universal HD.
This meet will air live in the United States on Universal HD from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. ET on Universal HD.
If you want to watch online, meets shown on NBC or NBCSN can be streamed live through NBC Sports’ website or the NBC Sports app. But for meets on Universal HD, the only way to watch live online coverage is to buy the NBC Sports Gold Track & Field Pass. The pass, which costs $69.99 for the entire year, provides access to every Diamond League meet, the USATF Outdoor Championships, the World Outdoor Championships, major marathons and select other meets (full schedule here). With the pass, you can also watch full event replays online as well as extra live dedicated cameras for Diamond League meets (meaning you can watch field events in their entirety).
