The 2023 Tour de France is fast approaching! The 2023 edition of the Men's Tour de France will be held July 1-23, 2023, followed immediately by the Women's edition July 23-30, 2023.
This article reflects the latest information available as of April 26, 2023. Here's how and when to watch the 2023 Tour de France via live streaming or cable/satellite, for viewers in the USA.
The 2023 Tour de France will be live-streamed on Peacock Premium
NBC Sports and Peacock Premium (the streaming service owned by NBC) have the exclusive broadcast and streaming rights for the 2023 Tour de France for viewers in the USA.
Peacock's Premium tier (the tier that carries the Tour de France) is a good value compared with other cycling streaming services. Peacock Premium costs $4.99, additionally, month-to-month billing is possible. That means you can subscribe for the Tour de France and then cancel the service afterward without making a long term commitment - a nice plus.
Peacock also offers a temporary promotion, as of this writing, 1 year for $19.99 - a great value for a year of bike racing coverage.
The 2023 Tour de France will also be seen on NBC's USA and CNBC cable and satellite channels
If you're still clinging to a cable or satellite subscription, you can find the Tour de France on the NBC-owned USA and CNBC channels. Frankly, Peacock Premium seems like a better value since it's offered month-to-month with no commitment, but if you already have access to USA and CNBC through a cable or satellite subscription, you've got another way to watch.
If you've previously watched on the NBCSN cable/satellite channel, or using the NBC Sports Gold Cycling Pass, note that the TV channel is no more, and Gold Cycling Pass has also been discontinued.
NBC has already moved their cycling coverage to the Peacock streaming service, and that's where you'll find their coverage of "le Tour" and other racing moving forward.
When is the 2023 Tour de France?
The 2022 Tour de France (3 week Men's race) is July 1-23, 2023, starting in Bilbao, Spain before returning to France.

What about the Tour de France Femmes?
All the same streaming and TV info applies to the Tour de France Femmes 2023, you'll tune in on Peacock or the NBC cable/satellite channels for live coverage, just as for the men's race.
