Where to watch Formula E's historic NYC races

Formula E is about to make history by bringing racing back to New York City, and you'll have plenty of chances to tune in - though not always live.

Fox Sports (the league's official broadcaster) has detailed a coverage schedule for the two Brooklyn races on the weekend, including the pre-race buildup. Everything starts at 6:30 p.m. this Saturday, July 15, when FS2 and SDD will rebroadcast the round 9 race's qualifying results. You'll see the race itself an hour later, at 7:30 p.m. Round 10 qualifying will air at 11 a.m. Sunday, July 16.

The real fireworks start at 12:30 p.m. Sunday - that's when the pre-race (and half an hour later, the race itself) broadcasts live on TV. Both races will livestream online through Fox Sports Go, though you'll need a TV subscription to take advantage of internet viewing.

As for those of us who aren't Fox customers? We've asked Formula E about its plans, but the league has historically offered video on YouTube, including live streams of the races and qualifiers. If so, you won't have to watch Fox (or endure arbitrary delays) to understand what all the fuss is about. It's the most surefire option as we write this.
