How to live stream the 2018 Le Mans 24 Hours race
In Australia, Le Mans is officially broadcast by Eurosport, so you will need a Foxtel subscription with the Sport Pack to watch on TV. If you already have this, you can breathe easy. Even if you can’t tune in on the big screen, you can still stream the race on mobile devices with the Foxtel app, available for free to all Foxtel subscribers.

The service allows you to watch content both live and on-demand and to customise your subscription with channel packs so that it best matches your interests. There are no contracts, so you cancel anytime. Moreover, there’s a two-week free trial you can take advantage of if you’re a first-time customer.
To live stream the 2018 Le Mans 24 Hours race, you need the Sports Pack, which is $29 per month. This is a Premium Pack, which means you also have to subscribe to a Starter Pack to gain access to it. Starter Packs cost from $10 per month. You can choose between Lifestyle, Docos, Kids, Drama and Pop.
Alternatively, you can also stream the race with the FIA WEC mobile app. It’s available to download for free from Google Play and Apple Store.
