NBC Sports, Peacock Announce Rights Extension With Tour De France

NBC Sports, Peacock and the Amaury Sport Organisation (A.S.O.) have announced a six-year extension for exclusive U.S. media rights for the Tour de France.

Peacock will become the exclusive home of the 111th Tour de France in the United States through 2029 with live coverage of every stage and NBC Sports’ full coverage schedule for the Tour de France 2023 will be announced in the coming months.

Select stages will also broadcasted live on NBC throughout the three-week event.

Daily coverage on Peacock will include NBC Sports-produced pre- and post-race studio shows, full-stage replays, highlights, stage recaps, rider interviews, and more.

Commenting on the extension, NBC Sports’ acquisitions and partnerships president, Jon Miller said he is excited to reach this long-term agreement with A.S.O. to present the world’s most prestigious cycling event live on Peacock for years to come.

“With the Tour de France and our extensive cycling portfolio, we are proud to continue as the home of cycling in the United States, while continuing to bolster Peacock’s best-in-class slate of live sports programming,” Miller said.

A.S.O.’s CEO, Yann Le Moenner added that super fans won’t miss any of the twists and turns that cycling holds because NBC Sports will remain the home of cycling in the United States for another six years and in 2029 we will celebrate the 29th anniversary of a historic partnership that is proof of America’s sincere love for cycling and the tour.

“We are delighted to be able to extend our long-term partnership with NBCUniversal, which promotes the Tour de France and all the major A.S.O. sporting events to the American public on a cross-platform basis, including women’s cycling such as the Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift that NBC Sports has supported since the first edition in July 2022,” Moenner said.

The combined coverage via Peacock, which will show the entire races from the beginning to the end, and network television, will ensure that everyone has access to the best of world cycling,” he said.

This announcement comes after broadcasters of the NFL and NBC Sports announced the launch of a partnership with BetMGM.
