    Will you be paying for the NBC Sports Gold package for Indycar?

    Simple yes or no.
    I'd rather have 10% of the world interested in the ICS than 50% of US that NASCAR currently has

    Yes, signed up this morning about an hour ago. I'll try it out for 1 year and if it's worth it, i'll keep it for next year too.

    I'm a no. With my busy schedule, I barely have enough time to watch the races as it is. I can't see spending extra money on something I likely wont have time for. I'll stick with the TV broadcasts for the moment. And use the money to go to a race or two.

    If there was a hope that not paying for it meant that youtube streaming would come back, my answer would be "no."

    There is not, so I will pay for it and at least help demonstrate that IndyCar content is something worth paying for.

    Yes I will. It’s like 3$ a race weekend plus the exclusive content. Seems like it’s worth it for the first year at least.

    I'm fine with NBC and NBCSN on my YouTube TV for my Indycar fix, but I know I will be missing watching 500 practice when it's going on.

    Just signed up. Will see how well it works with my Roku.

    I would've done it if it would've been available here... Will go the way again I always used to before IndyCar became available on the ESPN Player and that is illegal livestreams... I can still watch everything but it's not the way I want to.... But yeah, if it's unavailable here...

    $49.99 (early-bird savings). I think I'll pull the trigger on it. Hopefully the coverage is quality.

    No.

    ESPN+ costs $5/month, can sign up or cancel month-by-month.
    Assuming your signed up for a whole year, that's $60 for every single sporting event that streams on ESPN+ (UFC, many college football & basketball conferences, NHL, MLB, soccer, tennis) plus practically every 30-for-30 that was ever made, plus every Indy 500 ABC broadcast (minus '72) going back to the mid-60's.
    Compare that to $55 for some practice & qual sessions, and the six-car-field Lights races, and basically nothing else at all.

    If NBC Gold IndyCar was $20 for the year, I'd consider it. At more than twice that price point, no, thanks. If you could pay by the month, or even better, by the race weekend, I'd consider it - but only if it was $5 or less for those increments.

    I'll miss watching the occasional 500 practice session, and the two or three Lights races that I'd watch per year, but I'll find something to do with the $55 to make up for it.

    I thought about it - but I'm a no for the same reason. As a divorced dad of 2 small kids - I barely have enough time to catch the races themselves. That said - I hope this is a success and that it's around for a couple of years (at least) so as I get more time - maybe it will make sense in the future. I think it's a great idea and I really wish I had the time to take advantage of it!!

    Interesting that they use the term "qualifier".

    I'm undecided.
    I already subscribe to the Premier League package on NBC Gold.
    The IndyCar package seems like extremely poor value in comparison.

    Some of the comments here are crazy.

    For $50 per year, and as someone mentioned, basically the cost of one beer per race weekend, this is CHEAP!

    Compare this to one month's cable bill minus the internet, and it not only pays for itself in ONE MONTH, I have gas money to get me part way to the 500.

    YES.
