How to Watch NFR in Mexico

The National Finals Rodeo (NFR) is a premier championship rodeo event in the United States, showcasing the top 15 contestants in seven rodeo events: bareback riding, steer wrestling, team roping, saddle bronc riding, tie-down roping, barrel racing, and bull riding.

The 2023 NFR is scheduled to take place from December 7 to 16 at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. For rodeo fans in Mexico, there are several ways to watch the NFR 2023.

The Cowboy Channel

The Cowboy Channel is the official television partner of the NFR. It broadcasts all performances of the NFR live. The Cowboy Channel also offers a streaming service, the Cowboy Channel Plus App, which allows you to stream the NFR live.

For a limited time, the “Everything We Got” package is available for $119.99, providing access to all 10 days of the 2023 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, live from Las Vegas, along with over 950 live rodeo performances.

The Cowboy Channel has also launched a separate feed for Spanish-language viewers, providing full coverage of all performances of the PRCA’s Top 10 rodeos.

This service is offered as part of a monthly or yearly subscription to the PRCA on Cowboy Channel Plus app. This is particularly beneficial for Spanish-speaking fans in Mexico.

VPN Services

For those who are unable to access the Cowboy Channel or its streaming service due to geographical restrictions, a Virtual Private Network (VPN) can be a solution.

A VPN allows you to remotely connect to a server in a different country, enabling access to the desired website or streaming service. Once connected to a high-speed server in the United States, the Cowboy Channel website becomes accessible.


TelevisaUnivision’s sports division has announced a Spanish language partnership in the United States, Mexico, and Latin America. While the details of the partnership are not specified in the search results, it’s possible that TelevisaUnivision may broadcast the NFR in Mexico.

Federación Mexicana de Rodeo (FMR)

Since 2023, the national champions and finals champions of the Federación Mexicana de Rodeo (FMR) [Mexican Rodeo Federation] have been competing at the NFR Open. This suggests that there may be local interest and potentially local broadcasts of the event in Mexico.
