Excuse in the App "High demand, not able to support all wanting to stream"

If you are in GER, you can watch Servus on TV

Maybe this helps:

 

My usual info (getting longer and longer by the hour):

First of all: Make sure your antivir is up to date, and you have an adblocker running!

Choose one of the streams here: http://live.robinwidget.org/
A selection:
   http://live.robinwidget.org/static/freeplayer/47507908913020.html
   http://live.robinwidget.org/static/freeplayer/47507908913010.html

   http://live.robinwidget.org/streamvideo8/sailing-vs-35th-americas-cup-2017-live-stream-2477928.html

If this doesn't work, you can try here:

here

or here: 
    Look for BT1/scroll down: http://cricfree.sc/bt-sport-1-live-stream-1


The press conferences are streamed here: https://www.youtube.com/user/AmericasCup/videos

Replays of both round robins, although with German/Austrian common-tree (you may need to get a German IP address): http://www.servustv.com/de/Videos/America-s-Cup
Here the replays of the more recent races: http://www.servustv.com/de/Sendungen/America-s-Cup-2017

I guess having too much traffic is a good problem to have, but these days scaling can happen fast, so they should have been able to adjust.

The app has a max of 25 viewers apparently :( 

On the plus side NBC is finally saving the commercials and running them between races , at least the first one was commercial free .

Today I got the SkyGo on-board camera feed channels working as well as the main feed :)

Was nice because boat audio overrode bloody KR blather but bad because it was way behind the main feed :(

 

Its hard enough keeping VirtualEye in synch let alone trying to get two other channels to synch.

Also was mostly just the bow camera looking direct aft :mellow:

What's up with VirtualEye?!?  This damn thing never ever seems to work consistently.   Just like yesterday,  there was "NO CONNECTION" in the first race.  After refreshing a million times, it still did not work.  I can't remember a day where it worked 100%.  Anybody else?

Yeah, but that early in the morning I think people will manage to avoid hearing the results elsewhere.

I think it's pretty good. Sky is a private company whose business model is getting subscriber fees, so they've gotta keep something for the paying customers.

More like the bad press has caught up with them, so now they feel the need to show their "generosity".

But better late than never.

I still won't buy their fucking overpriced product!

Trying to watch the Youth Americas Cup live but it seems to be blocked on everything. WTF. Dont the sponsors want us to see their product.

No matter. Those boats are a bloody snooze fest. You haven't missed much. Why force the young talent to sail dinosaurs? There are a few up-to-the-minute foilers which would make a much better choice, than AC45T's. 

Even I'm starting to doubt we could ever go back to monohulls, after seeing the ACC50 going at full tit.

Can someone explain to me in the year 2017, why we can't have ONE website that anyone in any location in the world with internet access can browse to and watch the races!!!??????

 

Why does it always have to be so difficult????

Because they're all a bunch of greedy fucks and that's why they do everything possible to make it difficult. That said, we're very soon to see someone smash the cartel and disrupt the model. Anything you want, any time you want it, anywhere.

The NBC Sports app is complete and total shit.  Better rated than the AC+ app though.

 

The live feed on big NBC (free to air) is gorgeous, and bringing in Outerridge and Draper for the national feed was really good considering how crap Kenny and the other guy have been.  They're actually talking about the shit that matters rather than some irrelevant crap.

Following Rudders lead I signed up for FABIPTV for the month - true pure 1080p HD streams including BT Sport straight to my TV, or phone, tablet or PC and it appears rock solid.

Not the most obvious to get going, but actually turned out to be quite a breeze.

I've just seen a Youtube of NBC's coverage. The commentary is much better than that provided by the BT production. Now looking for a way to stream NBC.

I really hope so.

Its a perfect opportunity to get some epic full race footage.

But we'll probably just get to see a few more 2min long Youtubes instead <_<

Who would have thought the NBC coverage would be better.  What I like is that  we get to hear the experts Outerridge and Draper talk more than the host.

Anyone know if there is going to be any video of the J Class races....

From a spectacle point of view, is anyone else disappointed the J Class boats don't have white sails. Somehow, they just don't look as visually striking with all that smudge, IMO. 

You'll no doubt want to tell me they're contemporary replicas and therefore use the latest technology, Right? But why the hell build something that's a slow as a pig, dragging half the ocean around with it? Shouldn't the latest technology go along with advances in yacht architecture?

Draper and Outteridge commentary.  That should be excellent value. I'm a Kenny Read fan but his commentary on the ACTV Sky feed here in NZ is flat and uninspired.  I blame a direction team that is urging him to dumb it down.

So does anyone have ideas how I can view the NBC feed here in NZ without jumping through all kinds of hoops. Doesn't even have to be live

I'm working from home today and just remembered the Red Bull series was on.  Downloaded the Red Bull TV app on my Android box and had HD coverage up and running in under a minute with Alastair and Nathan commentating.   Red Bull showing ACEA how it should have been done.

I downloaded the Red Bull app onto my AppleTV, but all I get is what they are currently showing, ie. skateboarding.  Is there anyway to replay the Youth America's Cup?

Played around and found today's YAC icon and by selecting it, I could find yesterday's.  Not sure how I'll find them tomorrow, but hopefully it shouldn't be a problem.  Now another set of races I'll have to go on a news blackout so I don't know the results before watching.

^ Not sure if it's the same, but in Android TV you just go back to the main menu and there will be an option to watch the live action in the top left panel.  At the moment it just has RBYAC with "watch live today" and a countdown timer showing 2h 19m until it switches to live

The AC app may be blocked in Japan because it is being televised on SportsNavi Live.  But Japan is not on the exclusion list:

The America's Cup Mobile App (iOS & Android) and Online
If there is no broadcast arrangement in your country, live coverage is available to subscribers ONLINE and via the America's Cup App. (subject to territorial restrictions).

*PLEASE NOTE: For the following countries there will be no live video coverage on the AC App
United States, New Zealand, United Kingdom, Ireland, France, Monaco, Australia, Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Mexico, Netherlands, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay, Venezuela

Looks like you will need someone to chime in from Japan or you'll need to experiment.

Some NBC networks are airing it.  I think NY, RI, SF, SD, and some others at last check.  They could air it all - the only thing Americans like better than winning is watching a billionaire get his ass kicked.

It's definitely live on the network proper (at least where I live), but they often stream major events online as well

If you want to see some LIVE racing tune-in here today:

https://www.facebook.com/BalboaYachtClub/

Semi finals and finals for the Youth Match Race World Championships at Balboa YC in the Governors Cup 22's. Harry Price (Aus) vs Greiner Hobbs (USA-DIYC Tampa) and George Anyon (NZL) vs Ettore Botticini (ITA).

It is light air but the boats are light with a lot of sail, masthead kites and spin poles, real sail handling, no hydraulic pumps, etc.

I know this has been explained before somewhere, but I cannot find a comprehensive easy to understand explanation.

How do I watch live and replays of full races on my full-screen TV, for qualifying, LV and AC finals in the US?

AC 35 website says that is available by APP, but only on iPhones and iTablets?

Also, says Qualifying available on NBC Sports, but that is probably just highlights.

Also says Finals are on NBC National, Is that the regular NBC, or some special channel, and will it be full races?

I tried to get a response from the AC 35 website but got no response. Thanks for any explanation.

There are huge number of ways are available to watch live races one of the most popular is Kodi. It's free, open source, and easy way to watch live races. Here are the steps to install Kodi and pro sports addon to watch live sports like race, football, etc...

Steps to Install Pro Sports on Kodi:

  1. Open Kodi Interface.
  2. Click Settings> File Manager.
  3. Select Add Source.
  4. Double click on . Enter the following URL: http://cazwall.com/repo/ and click OK.
  5. Enter the Label source as Simply Caz and click OK.
  6. Now if everything is done exactly as said, you’ll see the name Simply Caz appear on the previous screen.
  7. Move back to the main menu.
  8. Select Add-ons> Add-ons Browser.
  9. Click Install From Zip File> Simply Caz> Repository.
  10. Select repository.simplycaz-x.x.x.zip and click OK.
  11. Wait for add-on enabled notification. Now select Install From Repository.
  12. Click Simply Caz Repo.
  13. Select Video Add-ons.
  14. Click Pro Sport> Install.
  15. Give it a few seconds. You’ll receive add-on enabled notification.

Hope this will help you to watch live matches on your device. You can also check the article on how to install pro sports on Kodi, they provides all the details with Screen short of the kodi. It will help you to install kodi on your device.
