Starting from 2015, We, NFR GO Team have been providing information, analytics, and Live Scores updates every year on this website. The year 2020 is not going too well till now. Starting with the Amazon Rainforest fire, at the time of updating this page, we are looking at a world pandemic which is COVID-19, as we all know, this New virus is killing off thousands of peoples every day. This has spread all around the world.
Every first world countries including the USA, UK, Canada are fighting against the spread of Coronavirus.
The majority of sports events are being canceled. If you are a sports fan like me, you may have noticed that no sporting events are happening in the world right now, as the WHO suggests, everyone should maintain a social distance of about 1 meter, which is impossible to do in a stadium, no matter if its an indoor or outdoor stadium.
Big sporting events like the Olympics, FIFA World Cups are being delayed for this world pandemic.
At this point, we can only hope for the best, but according to experts, this year’s National Finals Rodeo tournament is not gonna happen. We can only pray that pandemic ends soon and everyone in the world including our close ones survives the virus. If our team survives (hope we do), we will continue to provide every information we possibly can about the Next NFR Event.
Now let’s talk about NFR and how you can enjoy the event from anywhere in the world (if it happens of course).

NFR Las Vegas 2020 Venue and History
The 35th edition of the Wrangler National Finals Pro Rodeo is a must-watch for all the cowboys and cowgirls around the world. By cowboy and cowgirl, I meant a fan of rodeo. If you are one of them, chances are you wouldn’t think twice about watching the event live in Las Vegas.
Even if you are not a cowboy, you can still check the event out for a great thrilling experience. Only a few thousand fanboys get to watch the event live from the gallery.

From there, you will be able to get all the information about how to book a ticket for the event, choose your desired seat for the best experience, and even get a huge discount on the purchase.

NFR 2020 Live Online (Dedicated Services)
Here is the list of all the dedicated streaming providers of the upcoming rodeo show. These are the services that provide live coverage for the event and no other channel or non-rodeo related content.
The Cowboy Channel
Starting from the Year 2020, the WNFR has decided to move to The Cowboy Channel and another TV network. These two channels now can broadcast National Finals Rodeo from now on, which is a great news for us.
You can check on with your dish providers about adding these channels to your subscription or check their website: thecowboychannel.com
It depends on your TV Box/Dish service provider.
FRD TV is the other Channel I was talking about earlier. This new channel now has the right to broadcast the NFR Events. If you do not have this channel with your current Dish Provider, no problem. They offer online subscriptions too! and the prices are very reasonable. You can subscribe for one month package or pay yearly if you want to get access to other Rodeo related shows.

It depends on your TV Box/Dish service provider.
If it appears that you do not have CBS Sports in your channel list, there are other ways to watch the Event Live!
NFR on Pro Rodeo TV
Pro Rodeo TV is the official way to watch the National Finals Rodeo, but there’s an upside and a downside. It doesn’t broadcast the Event completely live. You can watch the event on Pro Rodeo TV, but there is a delay of 12 hours.
This is the downside. But the upside is that if you somehow miss any part of the event, you can watch the replay there. This rule applies to the United States only. This is for some contracts of the CBS Network with Wrangler NFR. But if you live outside of the USA, you can watch the Event live without any delay.
- Annual Subscription ($79.99/year for a limited time)
- Wrangler NFR Subscription ($79.99 one-time fee)
- Allows for live viewing access or on-demand viewing access. This subscription allows for on-demand access to all of the NFR 2018’s performances through January 1st of the following calendar year.
Note: DO NOT subscribe to the $9.99 Monthly Package as it doesn’t offer NFR Live Access.
Las Vegas NFR 2020 Live Online (Streaming Providers)
Enough for the dedicated NFR broadcasters. If you weren’t living under the rock, you must know that there are streaming services that provide live streaming for thousands of national and international TV channels. You can use services like Hulu, Sling, or DirecTV to watch your favorite channels online. Here are my most favorites:
DirectTV Now is a very popular streaming service. It provides more than 65 TV Channels which you can watch LIVE! It costs $40 per month. The good thing is, you can get a free trial of 7 days.
You can signup for an account there and enjoy most of the Events during the NFR weeks. That means free streaming! But if you feel generous and also want to enjoy the full 10 day-long events, you can start paying and enjoy your favorite tv channels online. You can always cancel your subscription before the trial ends and you won’t be charged.
Sling TV is a great alternative for a cable subscription, but it does not cover CBS or any other local broadcast station such. That means you cannot use their service to watch the NFR Online. Not recommended.
Hulu is the cheapest premium TV Service provider. They offer a great selection of TV selection for a very low price, which is $5.99/month. You can use your same subscription to watch on 2 devices simultaneously.
They don’t offer any free trial at this moment, but for this price range, there is nothing to lose. There is no Live coverage of National Finals Rodeo on Hulu, you can watch after it finishes the TV Broadcasting.
FuboTV is a sports event streaming service. But it doesn’t offer Rodeo Live Coverage. You can watch Soccer, Basketball, Rugby, Baseball and other popular sports. It offers a 7-day free trial. After the trial ends, you will have to pay $19.99 for the first month. Then $44.99 a month for the rest of your life. No NFR = Not Recommended.
Youtube is the most known streaming service for user-generated content, everyone heard of youtube, and they are free. But they also offer some other premium services too. YouTube TV is one of them. You can watch many channels there for $50 (previously $40). Here is the channels list:

CBS All Access
Most of their online streamings would require a cable or satellite subscription. You can Stream NFR 2020 live on CBS with CBS Sports! If you have CBS Sports in your home, but you are away from your couch, you can use your TV Provider credentials to enjoy the event live on your favorite device.
NFR Live on Social Media
Social media platforms are always free to access. Facebook, Reddit, Youtube, and other popular social media networks allow their users to broadcast any video live and share them with their friends and sometimes the world. Continue reading to know how you can take advantage of the Live streaming services of these social media networks.
YouTube is great for viewing live events. It is a free to use website, like a social media network but for video sharing. Anyone could record any video and upload them on youtube to let the world see. But they’ve added the feature of broadcasting a video live, directly from anyone’s phone, tablet or laptop which has a camera.
That means there is a good chance of people from the gallery of T&C center in las vegas would go live on youtube during the event. If anyone does, you can do a quick search on youtube and find that to enjoy your favorite show for free. Quality might not be the best but it will get the work done.
Reddit is a very popular social network, it’s more like a forum discussion board than a social media platform. They got subreddits (categories) for everything you can think of. There is a strong Reddit community of Rodeo fans. You can look around in their credit community page to hopefully find a free streaming link from someone’s television.
Facebook is the most popular and the biggest social media network in the world. Peoples all around the world use their service to connect with others. There are NFR related Facebook pages, groups, and accounts that you can follow to get live updates of the event. Facebook also has a feature of going live from a page or a profile.
You can signup for an account there and search for NFR 2020 live streaming. Note: Facebook is not the best when it comes to keep your data secret, they have a bad reputation for using their user data. So it’s your call.
Twitter is also a very popular social media platform about news and updates. You can get updates for the National Final Rodeo event every second. Use hashtags like #NFR #Rodeo and #NationalFinalsRodeo to get live updates of the event. Unfortunately, Twitter cannot be used to watch or stream any NFR 2020 Live videos.
NFR 2020 Free Online Streaming
Trial of a service is technically the free period of that service. You can signup for trial accounts to watch NFR 2020 Live and cancel before the due date. There are no other legal and straight forward completely free ways to watch the event online.
These were the legal and most popular ways to watch the National Finals Rodeo (NFR) Online. There are illegal ways too! Yes, you can use sketchy streaming services to watch NFR live online. Search for it online and you will find a bunch of them.
I won’t link them here as this is unethical. Please remember that these websites can harm your device in many ways. 99% of the time they will have a million adult advertisements, wherever you click, an ad will pop up, which is very annoying. They might ask you to enable web notification or download a browser extension or a streaming player.
If you do these, your device will be flooded with spammy advertisements everywhere which may create a device failure and lose all your precious documents. NEVER RECOMMENDED.
Best VPNs To Watch NFR 2020 Live Online
Most of the streaming providers I have mentioned are not available worldwide. They primarily support the United States. What if you are from Canada, Australia, or the UK? No worries. You can use VPNs to change your location. You can use them to make yourself look like you are from the USA and buy their service without any hassle. VPNs are perfectly legal and very easy to use.
There are plenty of free VPN services are available to use. Free VPNs do not work well and they use crappy slow servers which is not ideal for video streaming. Always use premium VPN services, It will be well worth every penny.
