In less than one month, the world’s best athletes will take to the track at London Stadium for the 2017 IAAF World Championships. Before that, though, London Stadium will play host to Sunday’s Müller Anniversary Games as the 2017 Diamond League tour makes its first stop in the UK. Television and streaming information for the meet is listed below.
As you watch or listen to the meet, be a fan and talk about it in our fan forum / messageboard: MB: Official 2017 London Diamond League live discussion thread.
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 on Sunday from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. ET.
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 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).

In Europe: It was announced that Eurosport would carry the Diamond League live in 2017 except for the meets held in Britain. BBC will have access to highlights for a highlight show. If you have a European IP address, you can watch Eurosport live online here for £3.99/month (yearly subscription) or £5.99/month (one month at a time).
Since this meet will be held in the UK, it will be shown in Britain live on BBC Two/One from 12:15 to 16:30 BST. We think it’s BBC Two from 12:15 to 13:15 and then BBC One the rest of the time. More info here.
